Beautiful Back-to-School Food Art Lunches That Are Easy to Make!

With school starting in just a few weeks, I am already thinking about what fun and delicious things I can pack for my daughter’s lunches for preschool. If you’ve been following my blog for awhile, you may know it started out with my food art creations! I really believe food art is a great way to not only put a smile on one’s face with your creation and be creative in the kitchen, but it has helped encourage my daughter to try new foods.

When she goes to school, I love the thought of my daughter opening up her lunchbox, and being surprised with some beautiful yet simple food art, as a reminder of me during her day and something to look forward to in the middle of school! I am very excited to have partnered with Santa Cruz Organic to create three beautiful back-to-school easy food art lunches. They are simple to recreate at home whether you’re a food art beginner or expert, or someone like me who just has a busy schedule! To create my three different food art sandwiches, I picked up Santa Cruz Organic Dark Roasted Creamy Peanut Butter, Santa Cruz Organic Mango Fruit Spread, and Santa Cruz Organic Seedless Red Raspberry Spread.

Flower Food Art

Ingredients:

Directions:

  1. Place two slices of bread on top of one another. Use a flower cookie cutter to cut through both slices.
  2. Then, use a small circle cookie cutter (or cut a circle freehand) on one of the slices in the center.
  3. Place your peanut butter on one slice of bread, then your red raspberry spread on top of the peanut butter. Place the slice with the whole on top, so you can see the red raspberry spread peeking through!
  4. Underneath your sandwich, place a celery stick to be the flower’s “stem.”
  5. Cut 2 strawberries in slices, using the ends of each strawberry as the “petals”.

  4. Use your small star cookie cutter to cut out stars from your cucumber and mango to add smaller stars around your sandwich.

Sailboat Food Art

  1. Use a circular cookie cutter to cut a circle from your slice of bread. Then, cut the circle in half.
  2. Spread with your Santa Cruz Organic Dark Roasted Creamy Peanut Butter and your Santa Cruz Organic Seedless Red Raspberry Spread, and put together for your sandwich.
  3. Place your sandwich in a container round side down, then on top add a carrot stick.
  4. Next, cut two slices of cucumber into triangles, and place next to your carrot stick to look like your boat’s sail.
