My daughter's obsession with cream cheese is at an all time high. If I'd let her, Girl would eat cream cheese with every single lunch. Cream cheese in mini-peppers, cream cheese on sandwiches, cream cheese to dip fruits, cream cheese to dip veggies. I've explained before that Harper is not a fan of celery, so I've made up our own version of "Ants on a Log". Our version is called "Bugs on Some Bark". I've touched upon this concoction before. You can see more about this obsession HERE, HERE, HERE or HERE.
It really is amazing how you can create different lunches from the exact same ingredients!! Make sure you're utilizing all your options! If they loved strawberries one day and are sick of them the next day, just try to cut them differently! Sometimes, variety is all it takes! "Bugs on Some Bark" is simply cucumber spread with cream cheese and dried cranberries on top. Your child should try it! Let me know what they think!
Harper's lunch here is in an EasyLunchboxes container. She is eating Bugs on Some Bark with carrot sticks, Rold Gold Tiny Twists Pretzels (the pieces you find on the bottom of the bag all broken still taste the same!), apple slices and a homemade oatmeal raisin cookie in a Mini Silicone Cup.
