Now let's make a Healthy Chicken Breast on Whole wheat Crustless Shamrock Sandwich!

Growing up I was never a fan of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. The bread always got soggy, and I hated that. Frankly, I was a bologna girl! LOL What can I say, I like my meat! My girl is the same way, she doesn’t care for PB&J, she’s a deli meat girl too! 

Normally she will only eat ham, but lately I’ve been branching out with my “lunch experiments” and she is now loving bologna, and this rotisserie chicken breast I got from Target. It is quite yummy! I even got her eating wheat bread! WHAT???!!!!

Experiment and have fun making your kids lunch, whether it is St. Patrick's Day or any regular day! It will MAKE THEIR DAY! 🙂

Grab your bread, deli meat, or peanut butter/jelly…as you like it: your “Sandwich filling”. 

TIP: I usually only use one piece of deli meat for these types of sandwiches. I have tried to “save the excess cutting” and stick into the sandwich, but this often seems to cause it to be too “thick” and it can “bust out of the bread”. 

I made that mistake a few weeks ago for Valentine’s Day week- but it looked like a broken heart in a way so it worked out. My kid still loved it which is all that matters! I also add notes and jokes in her lunchbox for a fun surprise. It really makes her happy and I know how hard school can be, so that little dose of love in the middle of her day reminds her how much mommy loves her. 🙂

Get your sandwich cutter ready and line it up

Press the outer "cutter" down firmly, shimmy it a bit to get it down all the way, remove the excess cuttings.

Press down on the inner “sealer” layer to press and seal the sandwich. Slowly lift off and pop the sandwich out.

Add some green grapes, some green pea snack crisps and you have a beautiful, delicious, well balanced lunch that all the kids go nuts for!

UPDATE: My Daughter LOVED the grass! She said it was so good and she LOVED this lunch – she ate it all, except the green pea snack, but I had a feeling about those! 

Making a St. Patrick's Day themed bento box kids lunch doesn't have to take a lot of time and effort. But that little effort, goes a long way to bringing smiles and happy tummies home from school every day! 🙂

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I hope you enjoyed seeing some ideas for creating a fun lunch for your kids!
