Its tough to find healthy things #1 will eat in front of his friends (not sure why, but he only wants to buy or have the exact same thing everyone else has, thank you peer pressure).
I try to slip in fresh fruit or veggies along with his half-a-ham-and-cheese-with-a-little-mustard-please-don't-switch-it-up-Mom-or-I-will-FREAK! sandwiches.
And, after school, health food is an elusive little biotch as well.
He usually wants the other half of his lunch sandwich and that's it.
I've offered him gorgeously decorated veggie trays (carrot sticks with fat free ranch), gourmet yogurt (Go-gurts), eye catching fruit displays (cut apples arranged in a circle), and all types of other inventive, healthy, look-what-I-made-kids! options.
But, he likes the sandwhich, and the sandwich is so freakin' easy I pretty much just go with that (you know, 'cause I'm a kinda lazy and stuff).
I do want to try, though (no really, I do).
Lucky for me (and you if you keep reading!) Warner Bros. Consumer Products and Safeway, Inc. has a ton of fun and easy solutions for

A basket full of deliciously Looney Tuney fun!
See, looks kinda cool, right?!
Want to make it yours?
All you have to do is:
1.) Leave a comment (or a link to a recipe would work too) telling me your favorite, healthy lunch or snack item that your kids don't gag over or shun like the plague (actually, my kids don't seem to be entirely opposed to the plague as they make it a point to touch every nasty surface they can find and then rub their hands all over the inside of their mouths. Heathens!)
2) Follow PBD.
That's all folks!
And the gift basket could be yours.
