Coming up with kid-friendly lunch ideas has got to be one of my most dreaded tasks. I tend to count on having leftovers, but sometimes the fridge is bare.

But I’ve been testing out some new ideas and I’ve come across a few winners for last minute lunch ideas!

I’ve found that what works great for my 3yo is to put a big selection of finger foods on a segmented plate and he picks away at it. Usually he eats it all. So I’ll give him a ‘main’ like a banana wrap or pizza wheel, then supplement with a handful of grape tomatoes or berries and a string cheese.
Plates like these are great because that way none of the foods touch each other. Toddler moms will understand. 😛
