Lunchtime can be an adventure for little minds. Get creative with a set of cookie cutters and plating and watch kids gobble up their lunch.
For this Dinosaur Lunch, we serve our dino sandwiches alongside broccoli (trees!), Ranch for dipping and fresh clementines and strawberries
Nutrition Tip: A little bit of ranch dressing goes a long way. Kids love to dip, so try a dollop of ranch or two next time you want them to eat their greens, like broccoli.
