A Lunchbots snack in a box

I’ve been drooling over the Lunchbots boxes as much as any kid might drool over what may go inside them! Ever since I read about bento and packing an artful lunch, that is. And I finally got my Lunchbots boxes in the mail! Yoohoo! (I suppose even Sid isn’t as excited as silly old me.) […]

Snack in a box, fruit Rasta :)

Very inspired by Little Food Junction and Happy Little Bento I am these days. But of course, no where close to as talented as Smitha or Sheri! But I’ll get there <quite determined>. Sid’s snack box today turned from a cute boy / girl in my head to a proper Rasta :). I’ll make a […]

Snack in a box, berrylicious!

Hallelujah! It’s a berry happy day! Sid loved both the cereal-choco chip and cranberry-oats cookies and agreed to have them packed for his school snack today! I mean, how else do you get an 8-year old on a fries and candy rush to eat oats?! Added one of his fave fruits, fresh strawberries, along with […]

Snack in a box, go fruity

Today’s snack for Sid is an explosion of fruit. Nature’s bounty in both form and color! Put in whatever fruits there were at home and luckily, he loves all of these. I didn’t have much time in the morning to arrange them too very neatly, but a little trouble over presentation can help. Black California […]

Snack in a box, salad

toothpick salad

Phew, time is completely at a premium these days, hence the sporadic posts! Yesterday the toothpick bug bit again and I stuck some cucumbers, carrots and grapes on toothpicks for Sid’s snack box. And yeah, it did make snacking a breezy bite… Just cut them into 1/2 inch squares. Make the carrots a little thinner, […]

Snack in a box: 2 chapatis in 10 bites

Sid loves chapatis, but cribs about it taking long to eat (actually anything with him takes long to eat ;-)…). So I tried to make it easier for him to eat 2 chapatis at school. By toothpicking them, you can polish off 2 in 10 bites. Make your chapatis (flat breads) the way you normally […]

Snack in a box, cake and pita chips

marble cake pita chips

Sid’s snack today is home made marble cake and baked pita chips. For the marble cake, make your sponge cake batter as usual. Remove about 1/2 a cup of the batter into another bowl. Add any kind of melted chocolate to it and mix well. I just used a generous squeeze of Hershey’s choclate syrup. […]

Kids! Mini sandwiches

Downsizing sandwiches are a great way of getting kids to eat ’em! Kids can pop ’em in their mouths at one go. You can have fun adding in different fillings into the sandwiches. And, minis are great to pack for picnics or in a snack box. So easy to eat on the go or outdoors! […]

Snack in a box, chocolate!

chocolate cake cookie

Some days are chocolate days! And once in a while, I will indulge Sid in chocolate. He’s not the kind who loves nuts and a variety of things in the chocolate so the scope is quite limited – to plain chocolate cake most times. Today’s snack box has thin slivers of home made chocolate cake […]

Snack in a box, fruit medley

Slicing fruit thin or small really helps move things along! It lets kids eat faster and hence, urges them to complete the whole box instead of bringing home leftovers which you wouldn’t feed the cat. Every mom knows how hard it is to have kids eat fruit. This is one way to get things moving! […]
