It states 6 wafer cookies, if you look close the are not oreos.......and there are 2 cookies on each oreo, which has cream, thus 6 cookies.....Also this is a suggestion, you can add or swap anything! Personally looks like a great idea, however our son wouldn't be able to eat all that.

Like the basic concept but SIX cookies?? Did Nabisco make this recipe? Why would any child get SIX Oreos? That's four times the calories of the lunch itself. How many would you give your child? I do two or three max.

Microwave?? I have not tried the recipe for the tortilla wrap yet, but I will definitely find a way to NOT USE A MICROWAVE for it!!! I dumped my microwave a long time ago as it causes disease and is bad for you in so many ways. I don't miss is a bit, I use a toaster oven and my stove. Also, don't like the cookie idea in the lunch.

Five Oreos Are You Serious? Main dish looks good but I would taste test it with kids. Pros: The fruit and veggies are great Cons: Far too many Oreo calories

Great colors and shapes. Laptop lunches box is kids favorite. I would skip the cookies. Sweet watermelon is enough. Adding more vegetables can add color and nutrition value without adding sugar. Pros: Fruit and vegetables are included Cons: Too much cookies

Substitutions? Anyone try using something besides the spinach? My 9 year old son is a very picky eater and does not like spinach, but will eat other vegetables. Since neither me or my son likes wheat (my husband does though), I'm going to switch the wheat tortilla to a low carb one instead.
