Nutella Day & Rainbow Kit Winner!

Yesterday was World Nutella Day. I had never heard of it until I read about it on Lunches Fit For a Kid's facebook page, but thought it sounded like a great idea - I would make my sproutlets Nutella sandwich treats in their Monday lunches, for World Nutella Day - except, I somehow got the day wrong...
They still count though, because I made them Sunday night :)

Bella's pretty in pink lunch has celery sticks by request, with peanut butter for dipping - in the little pink container, with a fruit leather heart on the lid - green grapes, Granny Smith apple hearts, and a little Nutella sandwich heart.

Beanstalk has ham, fruit leather roll-ups (I sliced one into 3 pieces), apple stars and bars, and 2 sandwich "cookies" - 1 Nutella, 1 peanut butter.

I am trying out one of the divided trays from our new Lock & Lock square box in our good old 4 square box. I like how the divider comes right up to the lid.

Pickle declined a Nutella sandwich. I made him a bunch of peanut butter sandwich shapes to go with the geometry he's been learning about at school. He also got some yogurt and lemonade.

Today I Ate A Rainbow! Giveaway Time!

Today's the day someone wins my Giveaway of a Rainbow Kit from Today I Ate A Rainbow! Wow, there were so many entries, with so many great comments! Thanks to everyone who followed my  Rainbow Week! I hope you enjoyed it. Making colour-themed lunches was fun, but I am glad to go back to doing anything goes lunches - sticking to one colour was more difficult than I thought it would be! The list of fruits & vegetables in each colour of the rainbow on the Today I Ate A Rainbow! chart was a big help though :) Okay, it's time to announce the winner!

The winning comment is #57!

Update: Sadly, the winner neither contacted me to claim her prize, nor provided any contact information for me to reach her, so I will be drawing and announcing a new winner this Saturday, February 11th.

And to answer one of the questions asked in the giveaway post comments, yes I do think it could work with an older child. It's been working with my 10 year old... he's been extremely picky his whole life. You might be interested in my recent post: Eating Real Food. We have been using it as an incentive for him to earn video game privileges, and he's been trying things. He still hasn't liked much - but he's willing to try something before saying he doesn't like it now, and that's all I can ask.

Thank you all who entered! I'll be doing another review & giveaway, of another fun healthy eating tool, within the next couple of weeks, so keep visiting :)


  1. Congrats Kimberly! Great lunches Candy Girl! I can honestly say that I have never had Nutella! I have seen it at stores, but have never eaten it. Think I'm gonna have to try it :)

  2. I don't usually keep it around (it would be too tempting for me not to just eat it with a spoon) so I bought some yesterday specially for this lunch :) It's kind of pricey but super sweet, a little adds a lot of flavour.

  3. All the lunches looks good ! Love the mini sandwiches :)

  4. Pretty in Pink...isn't she?!

  5. I have a quick question about the lock & lock trays. You said that the dividers come up to the lid, but if you put soup in one side and crackers in the other would the crackers get soggy if it was accidently tipped on its side? I'm actually in college and am trying to pack my own lunches to save money. Thanks!

    1. Yes, the divider on this new version come up higher than the older one, to the lid - but it's not a tight fit, there is no seal. I would NOT recommend putting a liquid and solid in together. You'd probably be OK with yogurt or fruit, as long as it wasn't tipped for long - but if it was left on it's side, moist items would get dry items soggy.

      For soup & crackers, maybe you'd like this container: Sistema Klip It Breakfast to Go Container It's meant for cereal and milk - so I'm sure soup & crackers would work too :)


I love comments! Thanks for taking the time to leave yours! If it doesn't show up right away, don't panic. I just have spam moderation on :)
