3 year old’s lunch – Hummus and shredded carrot butterfly sandwich, Thomcord grapes, bread and butter Bubbie’s pickles, tangelos, and coconut milk creamies for a treat. Baby brother has the same stuff, just cut up a bit.

I used a butterfly cookie cutter and added the carrot body with a little extra hummus. I love mixing shredded veggies like carrot, sweet peppers, cucumbers, or broccoli slaw in with hummus or vegan cream cheese for a sandwich or wrap filling. Many kids will pick out big pieces of veggies but happily gobble up veggies that are mixed into a creamy spread. You can also use a piece of one of those other veggies for the butterfly body. Both big sister and baby brother love these little vegan coconut milk treats from Happy Baby, and they provide a little dose of probiotics and Vitamin A
