For many of us, our children are heading off to school for another year. If you're anything like me, September lunches start off with a bang. My Creative-food-juices are flowing from a summer off, and I'm ready to sneak in some healthy options for my 3 year old, J.
J has always been a bit of a nibbler. You know the type, the ones who spend 2 hours on a small bowl of cereal, leave most meals unfinished, and graze all.day.long? Yup, that's J!
So, when it's time to pack school lunches, I take advantage of the fact that she will be sitting next to peers who will inevitably be eating their lunches. I try to keep them small, simple, and fun for her to eat, and I never expect her to finish even the smallest snack-sized portions, which is why I always have a hot meal prepared and ready to be eaten when I pick her up at 1:00pm.
