  • “Aussie Apple” (Sheri gave me this idea in the comments. Cut an apple and then put it back together held by a rubber band so it doesn’t brown. Worked like a charm!

School Lunch Ideas

The “Aussie Apple” worked like a charm! He ate the whole thing with 2 front teeth and all!

As for the snack-like lunch, we made it real quick on our way out the door for the bus. Mom wasn’t on the ball. ;)

    O M G! That is AN AWESOME idea for the apples! I put lemon juice on them and they come home! BRILLIANT!! Reply

    Yeah I like that apple idea! I used to do the lemon juice like Amy but it always changed the flavor. My mom used to cut the apple up and put a dollop of peanut butter where the core was then shove it back together. But the rubberband cuts those calories! Reply
