Day three of lunch box week! I know I said that yesterday’s mac ‘n cheese lunch box was my favorite but I think today’s copy cat lunchable takes the cake. Its probably one of the easiest lunches but its so fun to make and much healthier then a store bought lunchable. [And probably cheaper too, I just haven’t done the math on it.] And I’m not gunna lie – it makes me feel like super mom because my kids love it. So grab your cape and Ill show you how to make this easy homemade recipe.
To make a copy cat lunchable for your kiddos you will need:
- Deli Meat
- Sliced Cheese
Our grocery store has a pretty good selection of organic products that are fairly priced. The crackers are Central Market brand and the meat/cheese is Boars Head. I don’t mind paying a little more for either since I know they are healthier for my family. Plus, the kids can’t tell the difference which means they eat it all right up.
To make the meat round like a luncable I use a coffee scoop to make circles in the meat and cheese. I push down, rotate and out comes a perfect copy cat circle. I usually do a few layers at a time of both the meat and cheese. [I make sure my cape isn’t in the way first. Duh.]
I don’t even think my kids realize that this isn’t a real lunchable, which rocks. They normally eat the whole thing and don’t complain, which rocks even more. And its healthy for them, which rocks but I don’t tell them that part. After lunch I retire my cape and return to the world of two toddlers running amok.
