Can I just say that coming up with this L lunch was hard! There aren't that many foods (at least that I could think of) that started with the letter L. So, I got a little creative!
From top left: Cutie oranges arranged in the shape of the letter L, yogurt with a Lauren pick I made, grapes with a Ladybug resting on them, pepperoni cut into hearts (for Love) and the word Love created from cheese, L shaped turkey sandwich with green sprinkles and more cheese L's.
Even though some of the L shaped things were a stretch Lauren seemed to really Loooooove it! She ate everything except the yogurt (I forgot she had already had some for snack time earlier so she wasn't too excited about it!). She isn't a huge fan of sandwiches that aren't cut into pieces, so after she ate the L's and sprinkles off the top of the sandwich I had to cut it before she would eat it. Oh, and don't you love how she is still in jammies at noon? Just keeping it real!!! =)
I also made her a fun little snack for our morning snack time today. If the girl had it her way she would have a snack in her hands every moment of the day, but since I want her to actually eat her lunch and dinner I'm having to move to a more structured and scheduled snack time. It is working for us to have snack time around 10 each morning and then again when she wakes up from her nap around 3 or 4 in the afternoon. Other than that, I am really trying to limit her grazing! This snack was focused on dipping!
