I had kind of a hard time thinking of something pirate-y AND healthy to make for my sproutlets. The first things to come to mind were gold foil-wrapped chocolate coins, and gummy fruit snacks shaped like gems or sharks... which the kids would love... BUT, candy doesn't have a place in our lunches this week - I've taken the Family Fresh Cooking Project Lunchbox 30-Day Challenge pledge :) I'll give the scallywags their chocolate doubloons some other time - this week their pirate's gold will come in the form of sliced carrots ;) So, what do little pirates eat? Whatever they can catch with their little swords! Their seaworthy tins hold turkey dog octopi, fish sticks, fish eggs, a school of goldfish, grape jellyfish & peach starfish, and a cheese map around the tin to the X marks the spot over the carrot gold.
