MarshmallowMama’s lunch packing tips
Meal prep and packing lunches in advance is my mantra for a productive week. This not only removes stress from weekly grind but also good on body and easy on wallet!
Packing lunches with a lot of varieties is my goal; so that kids get a chance to try and taste different kind of food!
Cutters to give fun & easy shapes, rice molds and egg molds, punches for nori, food picks, candy eyes, fun shaped waffle maker are my favorite accessories. Bentgo, OmieBox, Sistema, Thermos are my favorite lunch boxes.”
The 5 best MarshmallowMama’s lunchbox ideas
We love exploring MarshmallowMama’s lunchbox ideas in Teuko when looking for food inspiration or a new-themed lunch. Discover below some of our Teuko Team’s favorites so far:
We love the motivational title MarshmallowMama wrote when sharing her lunchbox idea on Teuko: “Attack the week with a shark-themed lunch!” So fun, isn’t it?
Her Shark Attack Lunchbox looks awesome and, what we like even better is that it seems not complicated to recreate. On one side of the lunchbox, she made a shark out of a quesadilla. On the other side, she put an ocean of fish crackers, with, on top, a mini Babybel shark. For dessert, a cheesy shark fin in the middle of a blackberry sea.
Another animal-themed lunchbox idea for kids we love. MarshmallowMama used an Omiebox for packing this lunch. The most amazing part is the oatmeal that looks like a hedgehog, as there are apple slices that represent the spikes and raisins for the nose and the eyes. On the side, chocolate milk, cherries, and a cookie. Yum!
This is a great lunchbox idea, not just for Valentine’s Day, but any day you want to say “I love you” to your kid! The smart foodie idea is to cut the hot dog sausage in six and reassemble it as hearts thanks to food picks (here, cute arrows made with a simple wooden food pick and… cheddar cheese!) On the side, you find a cucumber salad topped with a few mini hearts made out of a tomato. For dessert, a fruit salad with berries, topped with a sliced “XO” Provolone cheese. So cute!
This is the lunch every little princess on Earth would love to have! A cheesy crown on top of fairy tale-themed pasta, and a few chicken nuggets on the side. For dessert, strawberries, and Disney Princess cookies. Let’s not forget the few flowers and rainbow food picks here and there. So dreamy!
