NO co-mingling of food permitted

Excuse the grumblings, I thought the pic would be right this time, but it rotated itself (grummel, grummel).
Tomorrow's lunch is a bit of an experiment. This is another Systema box, but this one has no divider, which opens up the options somewhat on the inner containers. Inner containers are very serious business when you have a child with a "no co-mingling of food permitted unless under very specific circumstances which can and will change with absolutely no warning" rule.

Tomorrow's menu:
Peter Rabbit organic apple/butternut squash puree pouch
Raw cauliflower & broccoli (maybe I'll be surprised)
Glutino gf crackers
Wellshire Turkey ham cut into circles
Single Andean Dream quinoa/coconut cookie

Home made rainbow trail mix with golden raisins, dried cranberries, dried blueberries, dehydrated mandarin oranges, dried apricots, peanuts (in round containers at top).

The kids seem to be enjoying having the little flannel napkins tucked into their lunch. At home, they like to have a small towel on the table in case of spills, and I think the napkin is an adequate stand-in.

UPDATE: As expected, the broccoli and cauliflower went untouched. I'll keep trying. The crackers and turkey circles were a big hit, and the boy asked me to pack them again. He also said that he didn't like the orange pieces or the blueberries in the trail mix, and he didn't eat them. The girl also didn't like the orange pieces, but said that they weren't too yucky to eat. :)
