This summer Pokémon Go took the world by storm. However, it didn't just capture the world's attention, it captured my son's attention. He had already started trading Pokémon cards with his friends and this came along. Then he heard about the Nintendo 3DS games, Pokémon Sun and Moon, and of course he wanted them. So let's just say that at times he has been a bit obsessed.
He has been requesting a Pokémon lunch for months, so it's pretty clear that it was long overdue. I honestly didn't start thinking about this one until two days ago so it came together pretty fast. Honestly the ingredients were really easy to come by, so it made the creation pretty simple. I built the lunch in an Easy Lunch Boxes container. Read below to see how I made it and how you can make this lunch for your kids as well!
