Walkers Mighty Lights

lunchbox examples from my pinterest board (Beachpebble)
It's almost lunch box season again!

Now, for most kids a sandwich, piece of fruit and a snack is all that's needed but what if your little one is going through such an extreme fussy eater stage that he won't eat a sandwich, or fruit and actually only eats about 5 things in total because let's face it, don't we all have a fussy eater at some stage (please say yes, please say yes)

I started off doing sandwiches in cute little shapes such as dinosaurs and gingerbread men - I'd like to be really adventurous and prepare lunches that look like the ones on my pinterest boards but honestly? I don't have the time or skill-  especially with a 2 year old and 4 year old clinging to my leg.

My dinosaur and man shaped sandwiches just kept coming back untouched *sigh* and mr fussy pants aka Blake, wouldn't eat any sandwich filling at all so now the "sandwich" is usually a bit of cold toast or crackers! (Poor kid!)

Having such an awkward eater means I'm very very picky about snacks, treats and extras in the lunch box so I was pleased to try these new Walkers Mighty Lights because they boast to have less fat and a source of fibre (the fibre bit is key at the moment) 

"With 30% less fat than standard crisps, Mighty Lights are perfect for kids' lunchboxes. They are tasty, ridged crisps that come in three flavours - roast chicken, cheese and onion and lightly salted. All the flavours are suitable for vegetarians, and are available in shops nationwide. They're made from real potatoes with no artificial colours of preservatives-  and they're a source of fibre."

The flavours are awesome - I really enjoyed the Lightly Salted! Blake went for Cheese and Onion "stripy crisps"  (which, by the way are veggie - as are all the flavours) and Daddy and Meg went for the Roast Chicken flavour!

Daddy doesn't like to be photo'd so his place on the family picnic blanket has been taken by Fred, Sparkles and Gruff the Gnomes instead - who incidentally also like crisps!

I'm really impressed with Mighty Lights as I do like a crinkle cut ridge crisp - but these ones are super great because they  don't leave behind a greasy finger and thumb tip! 

I'd like to aspire to fanciful lunch box creations but for now, I'm more than happy to include a snack pot with some Walkers Mighty Lights in them - until I master the skills to make the crisps look like leaves falling from fairy tale trees! 

Ohhh and back to the sandwiches - there is just one filling Blake likes ... A crisp sandwich!
