Before my daughter starting going to school, I had no idea how big of a deal “lunch” was. I mean, I guess I remember from way back in the day when I was in school the social hierarchy of lunch time. And then I left school and grew up and forgot everything, typical mom, right? As so many things in my life, my oldest daughter is here tell me everything I am missing:)
Both of my girls are pretty good little eaters. They love fruits and veggies. They don’t turn up their noses to much…at least not when mom is sitting there watching. Then little Miss A goes back to school and I find un-eaten, un-opened food in her backpack at the end of the day. Things like PB&J…she LOVES PB&J! Why uneaten? It didn’t look cool. Really? She’s 4!
So the solution, I have found to the uneaten food…make it look cool. If it’s “cool”..it’s eaten. (Even when it has spinach on it!)
Here are some awesome and umm, cool back to school lunch ideas that will get your kids excited about eating their lunch!
