My oldest daughter has to have lunch packed daily for school. I actually started doing this when she started summer camp, which was a day camp that she went to all summer. I will say that I enjoy having fun with this, but I do not go to quite the extreme that some bloggers do.
I believe that lunch, just like all other meals, should be healthy. I also believe that kids will be exposed to junk, and that while they should be eating and enjoying the healthful foods, you should not completely deprive them of the things they will see the kids around them eating. One day they will be making choices on their own, and it will be good to give them a balance.
That being said, here are some lunches, with comments on some:
This next one here has little sandwiches, fruit strip, carrots and spinach, Doritos, and Kashi Warm Cinnamon cereal.
I hope to soon post a recipe of something I do with the leftover scraps of bread & crusts from making lunches. Perfect for autumn! Would love to know what some of your favorite autumn recipes are...
