I'm back! We survived an awesome Christmas season, and awesome vacation, and 3 weeks off from school. This week, being the first week back to school has been exhausting. Any one else out their pooped? (please don't let me be the only one!)
I thought that since this was our first back, I thought I would reacquaint myself with making lunches and maybe (don't worry if it doesn't) provide you with some inspiration for lunches.these lunch containers, and some square silicone baking cups from JoAnn's because I could use a coupon (I'm all about JoAnn's coupons!). Here's the Amazon link, but it's cheaper to use your coupon. These lunch containers sit nicely on top of the frozen ice thing inside his actual lunch box.
Before school started, I really wanted to find ways for my son to get a good lunch that he would actually eat (he can be a bit on the picky side, but he's a good eater!). My research seemed to show that kids eat better when they see everything out in front of them. I personally think that this looks fun. I am not spending hours making it look to thematic, because my son told me he didn't want his sandwiches cut into the shapes of dinosaurs (I might have been a bit bummed. . . for about 10 minutes).
Are you hungry yet? I hope that this inspired you to think beyond a lunchable or PBJ for lunch.
Do you have any lunch making tips? What are your child's favorite lunch foods?
