I don’t leave home without wearing glitter – that is my accessory of utmost priority.
But did you know that you can accessorize food?
Sometimes it’s the shape of a sandwich or the fact that the grapes are skewered with a magical toothpick that makes all the difference to a lunch box.
You might even get your Happy Buddy to eat his broccoli with some of these accessorizing ideas!
First, let me introduce to my latest obsession.
Just nestling a few of these cuties into your Happy Buddy’s lunch box is sure to put a smile on their face as they get ready to dig in!
Cookie Cutter Lunch knows how to work the food pick.
Another Lunch also uses food picks to make the lunch box presentation a little more glamorous.
You can find adorable food picks to buy HERE.
Or, if you don’t want to spend the money, you could totally make your own food picks (using toothpicks and leftover dot stickers – so clever) like Frugal Family Fun did.
Cookie Cutters are a MUST for making sandwiches magical.
The cookie cutter above is from a fabulous new line of sandwich-cutting accessories called Lunch Punches.
There are dinosaur ones and whimsical fairy ones and even ones that turn your sandwich into a puzzle!
You can find them on Amazon.
Meet the Dubiens features a Fun Food idea every Friday – you’ll be so inspired by what she can do with a cookie cutter!
Lisa Storms is also very skilled with cookie cutters.

Does anyone else think this stack of silicone muffin cups are just the happiest sight to behold?
Now let’s see them in action in a Happy Buddy’s lunch!
What a colorful display of snacks!
And we all know how most Happy Buddies feel if one of their foods happens to be touching another, so not only do they look cute, they provide necessary boundaries, too.

Cute ideas! I have those picks myself. I especially love the sad giraffes, but my daughter refuses to take them to school 🙁 I guess they’ll just live in my lunches.
