I absolutely adore autumn. I love everything from breathing in the crisp air to pumpkin carving and trick-or-treating. Counting down the days to Halloween, I decided to celebrate this fun holiday with these Spooky Lunchbox Ideas. Delicious and full of nutrients, your kids will absolutely adore this festive meal.
Spooky Lunchbox Ideas
Pretzel Broomsticks: Cut a cheese stick into fourths. Stick one end of the cheese onto a sliced carrot and peel the other end to look like the bristles of a broom.
Cheese Spiderweb: With your leftover string cheese, peel and make a spiderweb. Use small pieces of olives or carrots as bugs caught in the web.
Pumpkin Orange: Using a permanent marker, draw a pumpkin face on the side of your orange.
Spider Sandwich: Using a cookie cutter, make your bread circular. Fill with your favorite sandwich toppings. Use pretzels for the legs and olives for the eyes.
Mummy Yogurt: Using a white napkin, wrap your yogurt to look like a mummy. Best of all, when you unwrap the mummy, your child will have something to wipes their hands with.
Because Halloween time is often accompanied with treats, sweets, and candy, I love finding ways to incorporate nourishing food into my son’s diet. Adding a Chobani Kids Tube into my son’s lunch (as a mummy) instantly brings a smile to his face. Not only does he enjoy the spooky appearance, but each tube contains real fruits and veggies. Containing 25% less sugar than other yogurt tubes, Chobani Kids Tubes contain no preservatives or gluten.
