My Little Pony Pinkie Pie Lunch

Beau Coffron a.k.a. Lunchbox Dad and I “met” during the 2013 Babble 100 Best Bloggers Readers’ Choice awards—we were neck-and-neck for first and second places for weeks!

He ended up winning (yay Beau!), and it was a fun competition for the both of us. But, I will win this year! Hahaha.

Beau makes really great bento-style lunches for his elementary school daughter, often with organic ingredients.

He takes those Monday lunches to a level of creativity that I’ve never broached with my own kids’ lunches, and I was so intrigued that I asked if he’d guest post on my blog to share some of his favorites with you guys. Hope you enjoy (and maybe we’ll get another from him down the road)!


Hello (a)Musing Foodie readers! My name is Beau from lunchboxdad.com and I was honored to be asked to guest post for Liza.

I make fun bento lunches for my daughter to take to school every Monday.

I try to make them as healthy as I can and have her still actually eat them—feeding kids is an experiment to say the least and my kids are no exception.

Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose. But, even though it can be frustrating, I try and get them to eat healthy and have the courage to eat new things.

This lunch project for my daughter has been a fun challenge!

By being presented with healthy food options, made in a creative way, it has helped her to try new things and even like some food she never would have eaten otherwise.

It has also brought us closer as she has been in school.

Today I wanted to share the My Little Pony Pinkie Pie lunch. It looks intimidating but with a little extra time, you can also make it.

What I have found is that your kids don’t need it to be perfect, they just feel special when they know you put the effort in!

This also has one of the weirdest and coolest recipes I have seen for something called perpetual goat stoppers. They are the round, colorful balls you see in the corner.

Perpetual Goat Stopper Balls

It is just a grape covered in chevre goat cheese, and rolled in crushed fruity pebbles and candied ginger. My kids go nuts for these! Perpetual Goat Stoppers is an award-winning recipe, and you can find out more it about here.

Thanks for reading and if you ever have any questions about making food fun for your kids, please email me or hit me up on Facebook or Twitter. I would love to help!

Yield: 1
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes

A fun lunch for the elementary school set!

Ingredients

  • 3 pieces thin slice sandwich rounds
  • Strawberry cream cheese
  • Fat free cream cheese
  • Black, blue, and pink food coloring
  • 1 handful raspberries
  • 1 serving peanut butter
  • 1 serving spinach leaves (or another background)
  • 1 serving yogurt
  • 3 M&Ms (2 blue, 1 yellow)
  • 6 Redwood Hill Farms "Perpetual Goat Stoppers"

Instructions

  • Cut thin sandwich round in the shape of Pinkie Pie's head. It is actually a fairly easy shape. Cover whole piece with strawberry cream cheese.
  • Use a ball of fat-free white cream cheese and flatten into a circle. Place on top of head. Use a toothpick to paint the facial features as shown.
  • Place head on top of second sandwich round and fix in place with a little peanut butter. Make it a sandwich by spreading peanut butter on on third round and press the whole thing together.
  • Attach raspberries around head for Pinkie Pie's hair. I used a little strawberry cream cheese to do this. Place whole sandwich on top of spinach background.
  • Use recipe to make Redwood Hill Farms "Perpetual Goat Stoppers." Place in side dish.
  • Tint your yogurt pink with food coloring. It only takes a drop or two. Place in side dish and top with two blue and one yellow M&Ms. A little tip is to put these in the yogurt as close as possible to when your child will eat the lunch because the color will bleed some. This is Pinkie Pie's cutie mark. Well, it's close. If you want to somehow make balloons, feel free!
