Breakfast for Lunch August 27, 2010

Filed under: Bento — Sarah @ 5:15 am

Today’s lunch was another experiment. My daughter really doesn’t care for sandwiches, but loves breakfast, so what did this mom do with the leftover pancakes?

The Contents – Apple and kiwi kabobs, chocolate goldfish, almonds and skittle mix, green salad with carrot shreds and apple chunks, banana wraps.

The Details – One of my kids’ favorite snacks is leftover pancakes spread with jam and rolled up like an enchilada.  In an attempt to make it a bit more filling, I used my daughter’s favorite sandwich filling:  cashew nut butter and banana.  My pancakes were also reasonably healthy:  I start with a mix, add milk, eggs, flax seed meal, applesauce and cinnamon.  Spread with nut butter, slice a banana length-wise.  Easy peasy.  I packed two, though she only ate 1 1/2 so they must be pretty filling.

The Verdict – She LOVED the banana wraps, so I’ll be keeping that one for future reference.  I need to find an option for my boys since they are not so keen on nut spreads.  She said the salad was messy but maybe that’s because I forgot to send a fork?  Leave it to mom.

This lunch was added to What’s For Lunch Wednesday.

    I found your blog on What’s For Lunch Wednesdays! Great idea for the pancake, you can add savory ingredients like ham and cheese and I bet it would be tasty too. Fun bento! 🙂

      Love it – I am going to have to try meat fillers for my non-nutbutter-eating boys. I’ll bet they’d like ham and egg…the possibilities! Thanks for stopping by!
