Linda over on Restyled Home has put out an SOS as she’s facing the nightmare every mother has at some point, producing an interesting healthy packed lunch that your children will actually eat – EVERY DAY!. Thankfully Miss L gets a school cooked meal so I don’t have to deal with this daily. But when she attends holiday club, she has to take her own lunch.
Her favourite lunch consists of the following:
- A smoothie from Innocent – they are just fruit, nothing added. We are huge fans!
- A pot of fresh fruit blueberries, raspberries, strawberries – Miss L does the pot herself. It makes her feel like she’s making her own choices and therefore more likely to actually eat them.
- An apple
- A cheese sandwich with brown bread and the crusts cut off, with cucumber thinly sliced ‘on the side’.
- The only slightly naughty thing she has in there is a home made mini sausage roll, as she just loves them, and you can’t always be good 🙂
Oh and it’s always topped off with a flowery paper napkin and a note telling her I love her. The box always comes home empty.
