Since we homeschool, it’s easy to just eat leftovers for lunch most days. On the other days we eat a lot of good old PB & J. But, I am sick of peanut butter and jelly. Aaaaand I am sick of leftovers. BORING!
I try to keep things interesting every few lunches by making a fun bento style lunch. The kids LOVE when I breakout the cute boxes of little foods. They think it’s the greatest. (Easily impressed). They call them lunchables. hahaha. Don’t tell them that they aren’t!!
And kids are only easily impressed for a short time of their lives. I am capitalizing on that!
And sometimes just for fun, I like to sneak in a special treat of a fruity, squeezy drink. They REALLY think this is fantastic. These Robinson’s Fruitshoot bottles are no-spill, they are naturally flavored and have no high fructose corn syrup or added sugar. I love that! And they taste great. The kids love that!
Are you a packer or a buyer? I was always a packer, but was super jealous of my buyer friends. I just wanted a Fiestada from the cafeteria!! Haha. Funny how that works out. I can’t imagine wanting one now!
How do you keep lunch interesting?
