All opinions are mine alone. #HorizonLunch #CollectiveBias www.diaryofaworkingmom.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/11/The-Peanuts-Movie-School-Lunch-Ideas.jpg Nearly 38 years ago, someone brought a stuffed Snoopy to a baby shower.  It might seem like a strange baby gift now, but it was probably the best gift that anyone could have given.  My mom put him in my bassinet when she got home from her baby shower and the Snoopy waited for me until I arrived home from the hospital (2 weeks late!).  We’ve been best buddies ever since since…I actually still have him. Needless to say, there isn’t a moment of my life that I don’t remember being Snoopy fan.  So when I heard there was a new movie coming out, I knew that I was going.  No doubt about it.  And I was thrilled to be able to share a classic character from my childhood with my own kids, who I can only hope will grow up to be Snoopy fans themselves.  The world needs a little more Snoopy.  And right now, he seems to be everywhere – Snoopy dolls, Peanuts toys, and clothing with Snoopy on it are lining shelves.  I even spotted Peanuts characters on my daughter’s cbi.as/uooi So this seemed like the perfect time to make this month’s creative school lunch…The Peanuts Movie school lunch!  Staring Snoopy and the entire cbi.as/t00d Of all the school lunches I’ve ever made, this one is no doubt my favorite.  When walking around Walmart purchasing the ingredients, I wasn’t exactly sure what I was going to do with all the compartments for this school lunch, but I knew there had to be a Snoopy Sandwich.  Created with white bread, turkey, a bit of guiltless brownie, and a raisin for the eye – this Snoopy is a star.  A delicious one.  Best of all, you don’t need any cookie cutters for this if you don’t already have them.  Simply cut an oval out of some bread using a knife and you have the beginnings of a Snoopy face. www.diaryofaworkingmom.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/11/Peanuts-Movie-Themed-Lunch-Snoopy-Sandwich-in-Process.jpg www.diaryofaworkingmom.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/11/The-Peanuts-Movie-Themed-Lunch-Ideas-Snoopy-Sandwich.jpg I made Snoopy’s trusty dog house (and occasionally his method of flight when fighting the Red Baron) out of strawberries.  This part didn’t come out quite the way I’d hoped, but my daughter assured me it was pretty yummy when I finally let her eat it. www.diaryofaworkingmom.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/11/Peanuts-Movie-Themed-Lunch-Strawberry-Dog-House.jpg From there, I cut a Woodstock silhouette out of a slice of cheese and created hair out of some fruit strip.  I added a raisin for the eye and put him on some blueberries to add a bit more fruit to the lunch.  I was a little nervous about how this was going to come out, but it might just be my favorite part of the whole lunch! www.diaryofaworkingmom.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/11/Peanuts-Movie-themed-School-Lunch-Cheese-Woodstock.jpg Then it was time to Peanut-ize the cbi.as/12z6d www.diaryofaworkingmom.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/11/Peanuts-Movie-Themed-School-Lunch-Milk-Box-Charlie-Brown-Printable.jpg If you’ve never seen the Horizon® fruit pouches before, that’s because they’re new.  At 5 grams of protein per pouch and a excellent source of calcium, they’re a convenient snack to include in lunch boxes…the printable wrappers make them just a little more fun! www.diaryofaworkingmom.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/11/Peanuts-Movie-Themed-Lunch-Ideas-Super-Squeeze.jpg Fun fact: I always thought The Little Red-Haired Girl wore pink, but it turns out that she actually wears an aqua dress with a white sash.  I guess even a life-long Peanuts fan learns something from time to time! www.diaryofaworkingmom.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/11/Peanuts-Movie-Themed-Lunch-Tutorial.jpg Right now, you can find specially marked The Peanuts Movie Horizon® products at Walmart, with special demonstrations starting this weekend (November 5 – November 11) at select Walmart locations nationwide.  To find a demonstration at a store near you, check out their website ( cbi.as/12bi7 ) . So that’s it for November’s creative school lunch!  Will you be seeing The Peanuts Movie when it comes out on Friday, November 6th?  Who will you see it with?
