Day 1096 - Charlie's Lunch Box

I am not a foodie ...

I don't like to cook and I only eat to survive.

Which is why it's so funny that I am producing a cook book (of sorts).  Yep, every month I post healthy fun snack ideas for kids which they can create themselves with very little supervision. It's all for Charlie's Lunch Box on my Cheer Chick Charlie website.  One day, the many months of lunch box ideas may just get bound into a cook book for kids.

As you can imagine (as a non-foodie non-cook) I find this little exercise quite challenging.  It's tricky finding fun food stuff to do which includes a big dose of fruit, veg and other nutrients.  But I guess it's inside of me somewhere, because we seem to be managing ok so far.

Anyway, the reason I am telling you this is because yesterday (on my Woot Woot birthday and blogoversary) I spent the morning doing a photo shoot for Charlie's Lunch Box with my trusty photographer Rachel from Juzz Photography.  We have quite a bit of fun during these sessions (as you can imagine).  We get to pile the food up, rearrange, get all artistic and then eat the finished result. I thoroughly enjoy these sessions.

Recently I started to worry that I may be running out of ideas.  But then I found Yvette from Delightfully Tacky Lil Squirts and her fabulous bento boxes and I knew there was a match made in bloggy heaven.  So I asked her if she'd like to feature on the Charlie website and she said YES!  You see ... this bloggy network thing is truly fabulous.  She's all the way over in Perth and I'm all the way over in Canberra, but this interweb thing just makes connections possible.

So yeah, I'm not a foodie .... but it seems I'm surrounded by it at the moment and it feels good.


  1. That is a fabulous snack idea!! I love it!!

  2. LOVE this idea!!! And if this is your 'non foodie' work, I'd hate to see if you put a bit of thought into it, imagine what you may achieve!!!!

  3. Super-cute! I normally just stick with pepperoni & cheese but you've inspired me to reach higher :-)


I love hearing your thoughts! Keep them rolling in :)
