The art of packing kids lunches came up recently on my parent’s list serve, and reminded me that I haven’t done one of these in a while. Fortunately (?), B is very consistent (or focused and obsessive, your choice) and wants the same lunch every day for WEEKS before he asks for something new. Right now, we’re doing lunch meat ‘rolls’ with a couple of sides.
- Scooby Snacks (no, really)
- Lightning McQueen juice-box
- Turkey rolls
- Sliced cheese (cheddar & Montgomery jack)
- Mandarin oranges
- 2% milk
Pretzels, apple slices, letter shaped “fruit” snacks
Hot dog, broccoli & baked lays
There is zero fruit in today’s lunch, unless you count the juicebox (which I do not).
Pretzels & Curious George ‘fruit’ snacks
Breyers “Cars” yogurt
Turkey hot dog & baked BBQ Lays
Breakfast for Lunch today. B would eat waffles 3x daily if I let him. He really likes his carbs – with a side of carbs, please.
- Graham crackers
- Curious George “fruit” snacks
- Yoplait yogurt
- Juice Box
- Eggo Whole Grain Waffle (w/ syrup)
- Turkey hotdog
- Sliced strawberries
- 1% milk
Not the healthiest of lunches, but it’ll do.
Hot dog & chips for lunch
Cheese & crackers for snack
Milk & juice box for beverages
Here’s a little something I’ve been working on – not glamorous, but sometimes fun – school lunch! SFX offers a hot lunch program, but I like to know what B is eating and whether he’s eating. I took a little trip to the Container Store two weeks ago, and stocked up on lunch-packing supplies.
Today I packed:
- Orange & Kashi crackers for snack time (in a Keeper container)
- Chicken nuggets, pasta & corn in this nifty container with a special section for dip/ketchup
- Milk in a Rubbermaid Juice Box
- Adam&Eve Fruitables juice box
