Easter Egg Hunt Lunch

An Easter Egg Hunt for lunch! A FUN food idea for Easter!
Lately, especially this past week (well and since Sammy was born lol), Eliana's school lunches have been on the plain side. Don't get me wrong-- I'm not upset at all about "plain" lunches! I'm happy to feed her fresh, healthy and good food for lunch every day :) However, both of us miss the special fun lunches I used to make more often.  So because today is Eliana's last day of school before break I decided to make her an extra special and fun lunch! 

And what could be more fun than an Easter egg hunt during lunch?! (well.. hopefully this goes well.. and is fun... if not-- I apologize in advance to the lunch monitors haha)

First I filled her yubo lunchbox with fake Easter basket grass. Then I took some plastic eggs (I washed and dried them) and filled them with food for her lunch. Inside she has a chocolate soy butter sandwich (cut with a FunBites square cutter so they fit inside the eggs), blackberries, goldfish, a cut up cheese stick, dried cranberries and some teddy graham crackers. I also used the yubo drink holder and attached her Thermos to the side of the lunchbox.  This is seriously the easiest lunch to put together!

You could fill your eggs with anything, but I would suggest to stay with dry smaller foods.  Other great fun food fillers would be pretzels, grapes, cherry tomatoes, raisins, any dried fruit, nuts (for those of you without nut allergies), baby carrots, celery sticks etc. I just wouldn't pack anything that could leak :) I would also make sure you thoroughly dry your washed fruits and veggies to make sure no water leaks through.
I believe I put 9 eggs in her lunch but there were room for more if you packed it tighter. If your child has a bigger appetite than my very talkative slow eater you could always do this for half of the lunch and then use one of the yubo containers to hold bigger food items :)

Eliana was SO excited to bring this lunch that on the way to school she told me she wished it was lunchtime NOW (at 8:00 am) so that she could eat it :) 

I hope you all have a wonderful Easter weekend!

  1. The yubo! Genius! I use it for those tall cups with the feet, but was stumped for ideas to fit in plastic eggs!
