Lunch Made Easy: Food Allergy Awareness Love #TealTakeover

This week, May 10th-16th, marks Food Allergy Awareness week for 2015. This is something we actively participate in each year. 

There are great ways to get involved within your community to raise awareness, including handing out bracelets, information sheets, reading an allergy-friendly book to your child's class, sharing information on social media, and May 12th is #TealTakeover Day.

Teal is the color of food allergy awareness. By wearing teal today, you can help support your friends and family by raising awareness for food allergies. Little Miss loves sporting her teal and I love making her a sweet lunch to go with it. 

Using Udi's gluten/nut/soy/dairy free bread, I made her an awareness ribbon sandwich filled with SunButter sunflower seed spread

The sandwich is surrounded by grape halves. I also packed her apple hearts and carrots. Finished with a Lunchbox Love Note where I wrote her a special message. Lunch is packed in an EasyLunchboxes container. 

For snack, she has hummus packed in a lidded container from BentoUSA and chips packed in her Blue Bear Aware reusable lunch sack.

  1. Awesome awareness lunch! We're not even allowed to send sunbutter in our area anymore as the stickers have been falling off of kids' lunch bags. So wonderful of you to send a reminder with your child :) Thanks for sharing.
