This weekend on our way home from adventuring we drove past a Trader Joe’s. We decided to stop and stock up. I’ve been wanting to make a video sharing a week of kid lunches with things I find from Trader Joe’s.
So, we got some kid shopping carts, picked up some goodies and I assembled these five delicious lunchboxes for my kids. Side note: prepping my kid lunches ahead on Sunday made this morning go oh so smoothly. So, maybe I’ll get into the habit of going this more.
Everything from the bread to the peanut butter to the berries and carrots are from Trader Joe’s. Check out the video above to get the full rundown. These are the kid bento lunchbox containers that I use. Also, if you’re looking for some good ones, here are the sandwich cutters I use! So, without further ado, let’s get into the different kid lunches!
Monday: I always throw in a traditional peanut butter and jelly sandwich into the week’s lineup. My twist? Use a sandwich cutter. The kids have been loving this dolphin one, I think because it cuts it into three pieces instead of two and it feels like they get extra. Packing it along with some strawberries, some fruit leather, and a blueberry, almond, peanut, and date bar.
Tuesday: I used a flatbread that I got from Trader Joe’s, spread some peanut butter and some banana slices across it, rolled it up and cut it onto 1 inch pinwheels. Packing it with a fresh berry mix, mini peanut butter cracker sandwiches, and a strawberry apple granola bar.
Wednesday: Easy peanut butter cracker sandwiches, a strawberry yogurt smoothie, some baby carrots and some sliced kiwi. Packing a small little container of hummus or ranch dressing to go with the baby carrots.
Thursday: Same as above, I used the flatbread, spread out some peanut butter and jelly, rolled them up into pinwheels and sliced them into 1 inch slices. It’s a fun twist on the traditional peanut butter and jelly combo. Packing them with some apple and banana fruit bar, a slightly peeled cutie, and some crackers.
Friday: I cut a cream cheese and jelly sandwich into little tea sandwiches. My kids love the smaller finger sized sandwiches! Packing it along with a mixed berry fruit leather, some baby carrots, and a nutty date bar that I mentioned above.
