It's nearly the end of the school year and my kids are showing some resistance to taking healthy lunches to school.
Usually their lunchboxes follow this regular skeleton:
- Mots for Tots juice box (watered down apple juice)
- Something from the fruit drawer (I have different fruits chopped and ready to go in the crisper drawer)
- Something from the pantry snack box - we do a lot of Annies Cheddar Bunnies and TLC's crackers.
They don't get a morning snack and their afternoon snack is supplied by the school.
Joshua is nearly 7 now and he's been eye-balling his friends' less than healthy lunchbox treats. Today we went out and picked out a few things that add a little fun to the lunchboxes. I'll try to add some lunch-on-the-run posts to the blog for the realistic mother on the go. I worked some seriously long hours last week, so many of the treats in my kids' lunchboxes will probably be pre-packaged items this week as I continue to catch up on things around the house that did not get done last week.
