Back again with another week worth of school lunches I made last week. I would like to plan ahead and make lunches the night before, but evidently it doesn’t bother me to get up a little sooner and do this in the morning. My husband is a great help and fixes the kids breakfast while I create their lunches. It takes me about 15 minutes to make their lunches in the morning, depending on the amount of prep needed.
My girls LOVE their lunches. They bring home empty containers almost every day. On days when they ran out of time or got full, their lunch leftovers serves as their after school snack. We try to encourage our kids to not waste and see that food has value.
My goal is to start trying out some new recipes for school lunches and perhaps even feature one new idea each week. I don’t want my readers to get bored of seeing the same things every week!
