Today is World Turtle Day!! So why not celebrate it with a fun lunch? :)
This was Eliana's lunch today! She loved it and gobbled it all up :) I used my turtle cupcake silicone cups (I got them from Christmas Tree Shops) and made her a quick and easy lunch! In one of the cups she got sliced grapes, since I tried to resemble a turtle shell.. I'm not sure if I succeeded.. but she liked it! In another she had sliced cumbers and in the last she had rolled ham and cheese. Since these turtles are in the water I had some cucumber "seaweed" and some goldfish fishies swimming around.
Today also had me remembering this lunch I forgot to blog about! Eliana had gotten a new Melissa and Doug Turtle Snack Container from her buelo and buela last year and have loved using it! And of course its a Turtle -- so perfect for today! :)
Isn't it adorable? It is the perfect size for a snack and it actually works great for a smaller lunch too! It works out perfect for Eliana since she doesn't always eat a big lunch. She also can take off the cover easily all by herself.
Inside the container are three compartments; two smaller ones and one larger one. We packed sliced cucumbers, green grapes and I.M. Healthy Chocolate Soy Nut Butter and cracker sandwiches. This was a really quick and easy lunch to put together and Eliana loved it :) We've actually made plenty of snacks in this container the past year but I don't think I've taken many pictures of them so I'm glad I found this picture for today! :)
And since we are celebrating turtles today I figured I'd share one of my favorite turtle lunches I made for Eliana a few years ago:
