International Peace Day

Thank goodness I put it on my calendar.  I check my schedule last night, and Miss G’s school is celebrating International Peace Day today.  At first, I had a good laugh over what’s NOT appropriate for a kid’s lunch box that reminds me of peace and the 60s.  Cheech & Chong movies, protests, stinky hippies, a lot of grass (and I don’t mean to walk on) and some really good music I will pass on to my kids some day.  But for now, I decided on the basic peace sign lunch.

At the top left are barley and brown rice and black beans on top.  At the top right are blackberries, raspberries and a strawberry.  The peace sign is cantaloupe and piel de sapo is the greenish white melon.  It’s also called a Santa Claus melon and tastes a lot like honeydew.  I used a cookie cutter to cut the melon.  The PEACE letters are Stretch Island fruit leather.  The heart and Have A Nice Day sandwiches are Rudi’s Whole Grain bread with almond butter and sliced berries with fruit leather faces packed in her Easy LunchBoxes container.

In all seriousness, I think it’s great that they’re teaching 4 year olds about respecting others from all walks of life and all nations.  Being kind to others always goes a long way in accepting even when we don’t understand.

Miss G’s snack today is a sliced nectarine surrounded by more melon pieces.  In the round container is So Delicious brand coconut milk strawberry yogurt packed in her Happy Tiffin stainless container.

Have a great weekend!
