This week, I’m featuring a new idea and different idea for back-to-school lunches and snacks as shared by Coupon Project readers. Yesterday I featured Reinvented Ants on a Log, in case you missed it.
Today’s idea comes from Cindy. I loved her idea since my son loves Lunchables!
Ritz or other crackers
Cheese cut to fit
Deli meat, cut to fit
Assemble a “Lunchables” style lunch using the ingredients above. I used a sandwich sized container to neatly contain all the components.
While the idea seems simple, I love how Cindy decided to take something children may eat for lunch and reinvent it in a frugal (and healthier!) way.
We’ve done apples or bananas w/ PB instead of grapes, berries when in season, carrots instead of cucumbers, different meats/cheeses, etc. I have plates that are partitioned (like a lunchable tray), so we just portion it all out and have our own lunchables that everyone likes! 🙂
I love the idea of making lunch cute and healthy at the same time!
