I enjoy packing Gellibean’s snacks for school.
I enjoy it even more, when her snack box comes home empty.
Here are some cute snacks that I was able to put together for her using some really convenient items in my kitchen! I believe that if we spend a lot of time in the kitchen, we should make our lives easier by using items and appliances to make it fun and easy.
If you know Melaware, you probably know them for items like these in your kitchen:
Dishes and plates like these are usually the first to be used when you have a toddler! Gelli loves her Frozen themed plates and uses them almost every day. And since she is a toddler in the habit of throwing everything after she is done eating? Well, I’m not so worried that when the plates go flying they will shatter into a hundred pieces.
But I bet you didn’t know that Melaware also makes stuff like this:
This super easy to use silicone pan pops the banana muffins out with EASE. As in…I have never done anything easier. I think I should switch everything over to silicone! (Plus this banana muffin recipe is so super easy, too.)
So that makes it even easier for me to pack lunches like these:
On this particular snack day Gelli gets chicken and waffles reinvented. I used the Mickey Mouse cookie cutter from Melawares to cut the waffles into a cute shape which goes a long with the banana muffin glove, and the maple syrup which is conveniently tucked away in my Mickey Mouse dipper from Bento Mommas. Grilled chicken strips and fresh melon round out Gelli’s snack box. It’s a bit bigger than usual, but I just thought all of these things were so cute and I wanted to put them together. Much to my surprise, Gelli must have thought everything was so cute and delicious too, because she ate everything!!! There was only a little melon left when she brought her snack box home!
So if Gelli gets all Mickey Mouse themed snacks complete with additions from Bento Mommas, my big kids got a little more in their lunch boxes with the addition of potatoes and eggs, and a grilled cheese sandwich. Little dippers for my Easy Lunch Boxes are perfect for ketchup, which the kids always request with their frittata. Of course these kiddos get the banana muffins too!
Being a busy mom of four, who likes to pack fun and nutritious snacks and lunches, I can totally appreciate the ease with which I can bake banana muffins that don’t stick in a silicone pan. Super easy. Super done. Super right.
Thank you Melawares and Urban Kitchen for sending over such cute and fun stuff for me to play with in the kitchen!
