Weve been back to school for two weeks now. My kids take their lunches to school every day. We purchased lunch containers that we can insert inside of their lunch boxes that allow us to not only keep the foods separate and fresh but use portion control as well. Keeping things fresh and FUN isnt always easy. Kids get bored. They like variety. I find that if theyre actually involved in MAKING their lunch they tend to eat it and not come home with bits and pieces left inside. We pack the lunches the night before so we dont have to worry with it in the morning when were frantically trying to get out of the door.
In addition to sandwiches, which we try and make differently to keep things interesting (roll ups, no bread at all, cut out sandwiches etc.) we strive to have fruit and veggies as well as a special treat. They love Yoplait Trix yogurt and I love that its good for them. Its also the perfect portion size and fits beautifully inside their lunch containers. Win. Win.
