We have our own traffic light system. Mac takes Traffic Light Lunch (the puréed variety).I made the rubber holder out of a left over foam rubber tile and simply shaped it with a blade to allow for three plastic containers to be inserted.
Today’s picture shows containers of strawberry, banana and avocado mash. Sometimes it is a combo of vegetables like roast beet/tomato, sweet potato/carrot and peas/broccoli.
To ensure the foods [that turn brown] don’t oxidize I usually put a thin film of olive oil or lemon juice on the banana and avocado oil or lemon/lime juice on the avocado to keep them looking their best.
These lunches are usually met with enthusiasm by the other kids, which seems to have a flow on effect to Mac and the person responsible for feeding. Rarely they come home uneaten.
I plan to make a ‘paint palette’ version out of cork and add a fourth container – at least then I wont be tied to the red/yellow/green combo.
