So most days, I pack his lunch in his cute little Star Wars lunch box. I thought that once a week I'd try to share his favorite lunch here with y'all, and ask for comments on what your kids eat in their lunches! I run out of ideas, so new menu ideas are always welcome!!
Here's D's fave lunch of this week (he's buying Thursday & Friday because he likes the food those two days!)
Yesterday's lunch was: low salt wheat thins, a mini cream cheese pack to spread on them, grapes cut in quarters, a Go-gurt, mini S'mores Luna Bar, and an orange juice. (plus an ice pack to keep it all cold) He ate everything but some of the grapes! He doesn't eat a lot of meat, so the Luna bar offers protein, as does the cream cheese... I included an Ikea plastic knife for the cream cheese, which he brings home for me to wash...
One easy way I like to make lunches fun for D is to put a cool napkin in there. I buy holiday-themed ones after the holidays, as well as any clearance ones at Party City, or other specialty stores. This week he gets Star Wars napkins, which I found in the birthday party section of Target for under $2!
What are some of your kids' favorites? I'll try to do this feature weekly, and would love to hear your lunchbox favorites & tips!
