    Great ideas! Did you make the cranberry orange rolls? If not, where can you buy them? They look good and nice and petite for mini hands!

      The mini rolls are kind of like little flatbreads. I bought them at Whole Foods and I think the brand is Ozery Bakery. They are the perfect size for kids, and a good small snack for adults!

    Your daughter is so cute! I love the picture with her little hand in it. These lunches have such great variety, I love it! Does she normally eat all of it?

      So sweet, thank you! I’d say she eats what I pack 80% of the time. If anything comes back, it’s usually the vegetables 🙂 I find it’s much easier to get her to eat veggies at dinnertime when I can serve them before I serve the rest of the meal (when she’s hungriest)…so I don’t worry much about her veggie consumption at lunch.
