Simple Salad Jar

Simple Salad Jar

I teach my children to make healthy food choices every day in the best way I know how--by making healthy choices for myself. It has worked liked a charm so far. "Be the person you want your children to be." Not sure who said that, but it is very true! My children love being in the kitchen with me, and I love setting an example for them at these very early ages.

How we did it:

Materials List

  1. jar / glass jar / mason jar (large)
  2. salad - your choice
  3. twine
  4. cardstock - round
  5. hole punch
  1. We tried to pick salad ingredients that wouldn't get too soggy. We used nuts, dried fruit, a shredded broccoli mix, apples, and squeezed some lemon over the top. Easy, fresh, and can last in a jar for awhile!

  2. Emma added all the ingredients. This is her favorite part, so I had it all proportioned out and ready for her to add into the jar.

  3. Once everything was added, she gave it a good shake. Fun, fun!

  4. Emma made a cute little tag to tie on the jar and send Daddy off to work not only with a healthy lunch, but some sweet love too. We cut a circle from some cardstock, punched a hole in it, and tied it around the jar with twine. Emma wrote a simple "I love you."
