We have been using Laptop Lunches for years, and want to show you how awesome they are! See how kids can easily pack a healthy “Lunchbox Pizzeria” lunch, and a “Breakfast For Lunch” lunch. They are easy, but yummy, and you will have a hard time waiting for the school lunch break to eat them!

Ingredients
  1. Organic pizza sauce
  2. Plain crackers (gluten-free, if possible)
Toppings, such as
  1. Grape tomatoes
  2. Pineapple
  3. Mushrooms, sliced
  4. Ham, sliced and cut small enough to place on cracker
  5. Chicken or turkey sausage
Instructions
  1. Put the pizza sauce in an air-tight container.
  2. Place all other ingredients in the lunchbox. They look nicer if the ingredients are separated! Cupcake liners are great for this.
  3. The crackers should be packed separately so they stay crisp.

  1. Hi Amber,

    We use something similar to Bento Box, the Planet box. I was interested in what type of knife you were using to cut the pineapple and strawberries. It this a “kids” knife that is not quite a sharp? I am looking for something for my kids that is not real sharp but not dull like other kids knives that I have seen. Thanks! Wish my kids ate as healthy as you!

    1. Hi Melissa, sorry it took me so long to respond to your comment! The knife I used was just a regular knife – not a kids knife. When I was little, I started using a butter knife, then went to a steak knife, and now I am still learning how to use regular knives safely. My mom says it’s important that regular knives be sharp, or you end up pushing hard on them and you can cut yourself. It’s definitely something that requires adult supervision, but it’s better that you teach them properly, then to have them teach themselves when they are older! Good luck, Melissa!
