And truthfully, I didn’t fight it…since packing a lunch was one less thing I had to worry about. But apparently there’s been a change in the school lunch menu, because a few months ago they both begged me to start packing their lunch.
Transitioning them from buyers to bringers was a bigger challenge than I anticipated… remembering to pack it each night, buying more at the grocery, and coming up with meals that didn’t need to be heated. Oh yeah, and that they’d like. One helpful tip has been incorporating dinner leftovers into the next day’s lunch. Putting aside the stand-by PB&J and turkey sandwiches, here are a few other combinations that are hits with my kids.
