Another Valentines Muffin Tin Monday

I know Valentines is over.  I may be spacey at times but I do realize this.  However, I made a super cute bento lunch for Pierce on Valentines and I wanted to share it. 
Pierce had some pink punch, a strawberry, celery filled w/ peanut butter, a cinnamon heart, homemade bread cut into I and U with a heart Babybel cheese sandwiched between.  Rolled up bologna and all on a bed of roasted seaweed.

Sadly, this was at the height of Pierce's reflux flare up, so all he ate that day was the strawberry and a bite of bologna.  He didn't even eat the cinnamon heart!  Thankfully, he's now feeling much better and I even tricked him into eating spinach last week that I snuck into a casserole, just like a good mother should.

For more fun kids' lunch ideas, check out Muffin Tin Mom.

How cute that lunch is.

Oh no!! I didn't know Pierce had reflux. That is really sad.
I am wondering if grapefruit seed extract might help that? It doesn't taste that great but you may be able to hide the taste in juice or something. Also, could he be low on magnesium? The Doctor told me that is why most people don't digest correctly. We don't get the magnesium out of our foods because the ground is depleted where the foods grow.

I'm glad Pierce is feeling better now, and even without the sneaky spinach trick, you are such a good mom-that is so obvious Lisa:)

Now that is too cute. How do your kids respond to creative lunches like this? If it was me, I would cobble it all up. Making lunch fun for kids is what helps them to actually eat it. Am I right or wrong?

Roasted seaweed sounds good to me... Hope Pierce gets better with reflux

Carolyn said...

That looks so good and creative. I really really have to think about doing one of these one Monday!

Glad Pierce is better, reflux is so painful. I'll have to think about the seaweed, it would really be a new food for me!

I'm glad Pierce is feeling better -- would hate for your creative food displays to go to waste. :)
