Lunchbox Meal Ideas: Week Two
Another successful week of preschool is down in the books. This mama still enjoys packing their lunch, and I actually enjoy coming up with different ideas. Whenever we put the older two to sleep at night, and I’m nursing Joel as he drifts off to sleep, that’s when I mentally start preparing their lunches. Once I lay Joel down to sleep, I get to work. Everything is packed and ready to go the night before, because I AM NOT a morning person. I already mentioned this in my last lunchbox post.
Last week I mentioned their lunches would have a new look, can you tell the difference? I’ve collaborated with Stuck On You, to showcase their super cute lunch containers. They are divided up in different categories (Vegetables, Dairy, Fruit, Protein, Grain) with lots of fun colors. The outside of the containers are customizable with whatever you want it to say, and their super cute designs. RJ we went with dinosaurs, because Kid loves his dinosaurs. and Elias, we went with the Bear, because if you remember, his lunchbox and thermos is mountain theme. Upon receiving these, the boys were ecstatic, and so was I. It makes packing their lunch so much more fun. Plus, Elias (my picky eater) actually wants to eat his food, its probably the presentation lol. RJ can’t believe it really has a dinosaur on it, with his name. They’re super durable and solid. Plus, they fit perfectly in any standard rectangular lunch box!
