Lunch Menu #6

turkey+swiss sandwich

This is another basic for our Lunch Menu #6 — turkey and swiss on whole wheat bread. I’m still a fan of basic lunches because they always get eaten up and my kids love them. I do want to highlight this super cool Wrap-N-Mat. It functions as a reusable sandwich wrap, but also as a place mat. I love it! It’s super easy for kids to use and fold up and fastens with velcro.

- Turkey and Swiss Sandwich on whole wheat
- Whole grain cookies
- Baby carrots
- Apple
- Pickles

- The pickles are a fun thing to add, but can be messy. I drain them well first so pickle juice doesn’t leak onto the other lunch items. They seem to be fine until lunch time.
- Cut up whole apples for younger kids. (My kids prefer whole apples.)

- Wrap-N-Mat Sandwich reusable wrap and placemat from Amazon
- Reusable zippered pouches from Blue Avocado
- Water bottle from Rubbermaid (ok, but not great)

I was at the market two times this weekend and still forgot to buy bread for sandwiches! Who does that?! The boyz had to take bagel sandwiches today.

I’m loving your Lunch Menu series! I recently started a school lunch blog ( over here in the UK, I love your ideas, photography, and the way you set up the image. I have a lot to learn!

We love Wrap-n-Mat!! I started using them when my children were in preschool and now even on up into grade school, they have held up so well! I’ve also found they work well for gifts…my adult friends love them :).

Not sure about the zippered pouches. Especially not for fruits,it is probably more like fruit juice by lunchtime. For thermos, try the brand SIGG. Durable, easy to use and many cute designs.
