Our girls like packing their lunches. I know it’s because when they have a fun and creative lunch they’re excited about lunchtime. I know that their friends also think it’s pretty awesome too and it’s the way I like to make our girls smile during the day. I hope they know how much I love them and making their lunches is just another one of those simple ways I try to show our girls just how much I love them.
Lunches don’t have to be overly complicated either, a juice box , sandwich and fun fruit and veggies is all it takes. My biggest tip is to find cookie cutters that come in a variety of sizes and shapes. I like to find things that my girls like, flowers and stars are always a hit so are seasonal things for holidays.
I used to pack a big water bottle with their lunch boxes but after some time and feedback from our girls I realized that it’s not practical to carry a lunchbox and remember their water bottles after lunch so I like the bento style boxes which have space for everything including a small juice. The little containers allow for me to easily store fruits and vegetables separately. It also keeps their snacks from getting soggy or spoiled by the other foods.
Lunches don’t have to be complicated to be delicious, healthy and fun. I hope to inspire other moms to get creative with lunches and have a little fun!
