Below is what our packed lunches looked like this past week. I didn’t follow any recipes or menu for these, just threw them together with what we had in the house. Easy, and she ate them all, so that’s what matters.
Here is a link to the Easy Lunchboxes (set of 4) that I love to use, and are very durable!
Fun Fact About Us: We started Kindergarten this year, and a few weeks in, my 5 year old asked if she could start buying her lunch instead of me packing it. I thought to myself, hmmmmm, that will save some time in the morning, sure, let's try it out. Well, can you guess how long that lasted? Just about 1 week! Then, we only purchased on Pizza Fridays, and she ended up asking to stop that too, because she didn't like the pizza. Haha! So, we were back to packing, and with foods that she was used to eating. Now I know that she is eating healthy, and getting the proper nutrients daily.
