Lunch: Easy Tostadas and more...

Lunch is not our favorite meal around here. It is kinda boring and usually has to be pretty quick with two little people running around all the time. 
Lately these are some of the more fun and easy lunches we have been enjoying. 

This is a great lunch for Abby to take to "lunch bunch" at preschool or a great lunch for us to take to the park. 
It is our healthier version of  a lunchable:
Wheat thins, cheddar cheese, turkey pepperoni, and grapes.

On the days we are home, making easy tostadas is one of Abby's favorite lunches. 
What you will need: 
fat free refried beans 
tostada shells 
low fat cheddar cheese
avocado, sour cream, salsa (optional toppings) 
What you will do: 
Heat the refried beans. 
Spread about 1/4 cup beans on a tostada shell. 
Sprinkle the cheese on top and either heat in the oven for a few minutes or pop in the microwave for a few seconds. 

Add all the toppings you like. 

I found this soup at Trader's Joes and it is low fat and delicious! 
I made a little side of nachos and have been eating this a little too much!

And this salad is my newest lunch obsession:
Mixed lettuces, carrots, grapes, chicken salad (cut up chicken with a little light mayo), and some sliced almonds.

Anyone else have any lunch ideas that are healthy, easy, and kid friendly?
