Sandwiched inside of a long metal pencil box is a row of healthy, home-shaped bites, with little broccoli trees to tickle their tastebuds. Guaranteed to bring a smile to your kid's school lunch.
Gather lunch box items that lend themselves to being cut into house shapes.
I found this metal pencil box was the perfect size and shape for my row of houses.
Using the straight edge of a cookie cutter is a great way to cut the house shapes from your sandwich. It seals the edges and creates fewer crumbs.
Draw the door and windows using a black food coloring marker.
Use a block of cheese or string cheese sticks.
Try to use a fruit that isn't too juicy. Don't want to get your other houses soggy in the box.
I used Voortman wafer cookies, but any rectangular cookie would work.
Broccolini worked better for the trees than traditional broccoli — it's thinner and the flower heads are less bulky.
