Fruit salsa with cinnamon wonton chips today! Because I like healthy snack food that can also double as an easy lunch to send with the kids to school.

Does anyone else get kind of sick of packing lunches? I'm sure I'm not alone on that. I'm fine with it at the beginning of the school year. At that point I'm all on top of things, packing them the night before, so we're ready to go in the morning, plenty of snacks on hand, various lunch type options available for my lunch-packing needs.

And then the year goes on and I slowly get less enthused about the lunch packing.

Not that I've ever been one of those people making the cute sandwiches shaped like my kids current favourite cartoon character or anything. Really, they're lucky if they get a heart shaped something or other for Valentine's Day, let alone the wonder that is the lunches I've seen on Pinterest.

How do people have time for that? Not only that, how do you make a sandwich look like Yoshi? Pretty sure I could never manage to make that happen. These bird's nest coconut macaroons are about as good as it gets for me when it comes to making cutesy food!

So I was happy when I stumbled upon a new lunch option at this point in the year when the kids are getting sick of the same old sandwich every. single. day.

I didn't really even think they would like this. Fruit salsa is something that I thought I would eat and no one else would touch. There's onions! And cilantro! Shocking that they tried, it let alone actually liked it.

But they loved it. So we had to fight over who got to eat all the tasty cinnamon wonton chips and fruit salsa. So good, super easy to make, and a great addition to the lunch time rotation. And that makes me happy.
