    NcMysteryShopper's Note:

    Nothing fancy here.... Our 5 year old loves those Snackables, so I make my own rendition for his snack time at kindergarten. I like it better because I get to choose healthier options like real cheese and organic meats. I use the low sodium crackers or the whole wheat ones.

      This is a great way to make your fussy eaters eat their school lunch, at least it worked with my kid years ago. If you want to cut out the ham into fancy shapes without wasting, first cut both sheese and ham into squares, then cut out a heart from both ham and cheese.....then switch the cheese heart with the ham heart like a jigsaw puzzle. alternatively keep the cutout piece in a bag in the freezer and when you have a lot chop up on top of a pizza

      I make this all the time, a bit more effort than picking up one of those Lunchables but really easy and I'm sure much healthier because I control what goes in! I have lots of different shaped cookie cutters and that makes it fun. I also pack a treat such as a cookie or a small piece of chocolate, and juice. I use those reusable cupcake liners to separate the crackers (so they don't get soggy). Haven't done the math but I'm sure the homemade version still costs less (even if I use mostly organic stuff)!

      I gave this recipe 5 stars. I do this for my newphew's school lunches when he wants those Lunchables. The only difference is I do not cut out circles I just cut squares. Thanks for reminding of this little wonder! Christine (internetnut)
