Other Pirate Lunches

Last week we did a blog hop full of pirate-y awesomeness for Talk Like a Pirate Day. You can see my post for that here. But since we have a deep affection for all things pirate (well, the fun sanitized kid-version of pirate, anyway), I made a whole week of pirate lunches for my kids. Here are some of those:

Gluten, soy, nut, peanut, egg, garlic, and dairy free lunch for Beaker in a Laptop Lunch box. He has grapes, multigrain GF crackers, Cutie orange segments, a cucumber treasure map (with fruit leather X and nori bits), baby corn, and sliced hot dog 'dead man meat' with 'blood of my enemies' ketchup for dipping.

In this Lunchbots Trio, Beaker has watermelon chunks, multigrain crackers, dried apricots, an Udi's granola bar, carrots, cheese bits, and turkey triangles. This lunch is also gluten, soy, egg, and garlic free.

A rare lunch for G-man in an Easy Lunchbox. He has frozen Greek yogurt skull and bones, grapes skewered on a pirate sword with some cookie bits, a grilled cheese sandwich island staked out with a pirate flag, and some soft cheese with pretzels. 

For Lulu, a Jolly Roger turkey sandwich with gold dubloons, carrots, pears, pretzels, and Cutie orange segments topped with bloody bones (cupcake decor bits).

This allergy safe lunch has a checkered apple pirate isle, rolled ham and cheese barrels skewered with pirate swords and floating in a silicone sea, an Enjoy Life granola bar, multigrain crackers and baby carrots, with Jake and the Neverland Pirates fruit gummies and pears (tucked in under the gummies).

And finally, another allergy safe lunch, with GF vegan lemon blueberry muffins, cucumber slices, cheese bits, ham rolls, apple slices, and frozen blueberries with Greek yogurt skull and bones.

YAR! (That means "Hope you have a great week!" in pirate-speak.)

  1. I think these lunches are my favorites. great job jessie!!

  2. All your pirate lunches are amazing!!

  3. I don't know if you've answered this before or not but am wondering what brand the mini sausages are in past lunches? My littles have many of the same allergies/intolerance's and finding new things is always a bonus.

    1. I believe the brand of the mini sausages is Hillshire Farms. Applegate products are also excellent, and much better for you!

  4. Love your posts and your creativity!!! I was wondering which Udi's granola bars you used since all the ones on their website were made in a facility with nuts or actually contain almonds and may contain peanuts?

    1. We are very lucky that Beaker doesn't react to cross contamination! He also has successfully passed several nut trials with different nuts and isn't allergic to peanuts at all. He is allergic to hazelnuts, but can eat almonds, cashews, and peanuts with no issues. The Udi's bars often contain almonds. However, you should check out Enjoy Life products! They are completely nut free, and utterly delicious. They are free of nuts, peanuts, soy, egg, dairy, and wheat. We love their bars, and also their cookies and other products.
