Lucky for us, Beau Coffron—our resident lunchbox connoisseur and the face of our LightWorkers series, Dad Does Lunch—has some amazing tips to help you do just that. In this simple, step-by-step video, you’ll learn how to prepare a flower lunch that will leave your kids’ smiles in full bloom. Check it out!

You’ll Need:

  • 2 slices of whole wheat bread
  • lunch meat of choice
  • 1 slice of white cheese
  • flower-shaped cookie cutter
  • 1 slice of cheddar cheese
  • sharp knife
  • yogurt (plain or vanilla)
  • colorful candy
  • strawberries

Directions:

  1. Take two slices of whole wheat bread and place your child’s favorite lunch meat in the middle of the two slices.
  2. Place the sandwich in the largest compartment of the lunchbox.
  3. Next, take a flower-shaped cookie cutter and cut one flower out of a slice of white cheese.
  4. Place the flower-shaped cheese on top of the sandwich in the lunchbox.
  5. Using a sharp knife, cut a small circle from a slice of cheddar cheese to place on the middle of the flower made of white cheese.
  6. Fill a side compartment of the lunchbox with yogurt, leaving a bit of room at the top.
  7. Fashion colorful candies into the shape of flowers in the middle of the yogurt.
  8. To make the strawberry rose, make four shallow cuts around the outside. Repeat this step right above the four cuts you just made.
  9. Make one final slice in the middle of the tip of the strawberry, as shown.
  10. Place the strawberry roses in the other side compartment of the lunchbox.
