How to make a Ted Lasso school lunch

If you're looking for a heartwarming and hilarious TV show to watch, look no further than Ted Lasso. This feel-good series on Apple TV+ follows an American football coach, played by Jason Sudeikis, as he takes on the job of coaching a struggling English football (soccer) team, the AFC Richmond Greyhounds. My teenage daughter, my wife, and I love this show, so I had to make a Ted Lasso lunch for my daughter to take to school! This lunch features Ted, a soccer ball, goldfish (for the famous quote), biscuits for the boss, and fruit in the colors of the Richmond Greyhounds. See how to make it below!

One of the things that set Ted Lasso apart is its emphasis on positivity and kindness. As Ted himself says, "I believe in being honest and transparent, and treating people like human beings." In a world where so much media is dark and cynical, it's refreshing to watch a show that celebrates the power of kindness and empathy. 

Another reason we love this show is that Ted Lasso is also laugh-out-loud funny. From Ted's sayings ("Do you believe in ghosts? 'Cause I think we just saw one.") to the grumpiness of teammate/coach Roy Kent, there's no shortage of humor in this show. Be warned though, there is quite a bit of language so use your judgment if it is appropriate for your older kids.

Not only that but whether it's discussing the importance of teamwork or how to handle disappointment, the show's themes are relevant to people of all ages. As Ted himself says, "I think that's the best thing you can hope for: to leave something better than you found it." 

Lastly, if you are thinking about whether or not you should make this lunch for your kids, remember what Ted says, "Be curious, not judgmental."

Ingredients: Flour tortillas, dark wheat bread, sliced white cheese, sliced turkey, dark wheat bread, nori, strawberries, blueberries, Babybel cheese, goldfish-shaped crackers, English shortbread cookies.


1. Make a sandwich with tortillas, meat, and cheese. Drop in berries in the main compartment of the lunchbox and top them with the sandwich.

2. Cut a flour tortilla in the shape of Ted's head. You can print out a photo from the internet as a template if it helps. Use dark wheat bread for his hair, sideburns, and mustache. Use nori for his sunglasses. Ted's visor is white cheese. I printed out a tiny logo from the internet and placed it on the visor, but this is optional. Put Ted's head on top of the sandwich.

3. Cut the top wax off of a Babybel cheese. Cut it into the pieces shown and place on top in the design of a soccer ball. Place on top of blueberries in the side compartment.
