A Real Food Kid’s Lunch

A Real Food Kid's Lunch


My kiddo is certainly a Real Food lover. Put just about any food in front of her, and she’s happy to gobble it down.

This mama is very thankful for that.

If you’re wondering how we did that, it’s all about gut health. Miss Katie had a ton of restrictions with her prior allergies, but, thanks to our healing protocol, they’re gone now.

Katie’s Adventuresome Lunch

Her lunch from yesterday was all her doing. She picked which foods filled her favorite lunch box and decided the toppings for each. As I’ve mentioned before, this princess-doctor-ballerina-fairy is certain to have her own cooking show.

Here’s the breakdown:

  1. Chicken salad sprinkled with pomegranate seeds
  2. Chinese red date
  3. “Ants on a log” – celery, sprouted pumpkin seed butter, local honey, goldenberries
  4. lacto-fermented pickle

Here’s a peek at Katie’s lunch pre-GAPS: It’s Bento Time…

It took me months to track down this lunch box after seeing it online. Want one? Here’s ours.
