You can spread anything on a rice cake and get strategic with the toppings to make a face. Have your kids help you and see their faces light up! We spread these with with sunflower seed butter, refried beans, peanut butter and hummus and then chose different eye and mouth shaped fruits and veggies to make the smile! There’s no wrong way. Get creative and most of all have fun!


A few ideas to include in a lunchbox with these is Paper Bag Popcorn with Nutritional Yeast, some melon balls, hummus with crackers or veggies, maybe some Air Fryer Churro Pasta Chips for a bit of a sweet treat but there are tons of other ideas for lunch on the site. Mix different textures and colors to keep lunch exciting!


Making sandwiches more fun is one of my favorite things to do! I’ve done Animal Face ToastMonogram SandwichesTwo Tone Sandwiches, and Waffle Heart Sandwiches to name a few! You’d be surprised how just adding a shape or fun design to a lunch time classic like a sandwich will take it to the next level for your kids! After all, the goal is to get kids to come home with an empty lunchbox and these recipes are sure to do the trick.
