When we take the grandkids out to dinner, if there is a charcuterie board offered on the appetizer menu we order it for them for dinner. And they love it! So I thought why not make a charcuterie board school lunch?

What’s In It:

My charcuterie lunch has delicious prosciutto and salami, aged gouda, Leslie Stowe crackers, olives, and an assortment of fresh ripe melons. For dessert a single triangle of dark chocolate hits the spot! As soon as I was done taking pictures I ate the whole thing and let me tell you, it was delicious and filling. Melons are the perfect fruit to serve with charcuterie. The subtle sweetness works really well with the salty meats and savory cheeses, and the olives provide healthy fats to give your child energy for the rest of the day…so much goodness in one little box! And no cooking or fuss on your part! In fact you don’t even have to assemble a sandwich! (for younger kids I do recommend cutting up the meats).

The Planetbox keeps everything separated and comes with a cold pack to keep the food chilled. Notice that little yellow pod keeping the olives separated from the cheese? Those pods are new and allow you to create even more compartments when needed. Planetbox also created a special backpack that not only carries your child’s school supplies but has a compartment that keeps the Planetbox flat! Ingenious!
