How We…Pack Lunches

 Hey, Hey Everyone!

Time for How We Wednesday with Erika and Shay!  Each month, we highlight HOW WE do something and we hope you’ll share HOW YOU do something.  The goal is for us all to learn a little from each other.

Today, we’re talking about packing lunches!

At the beginning of the year, I’d give myself “ROCKSTAR” status for my lunches.  They’re nothing super fancy, but a sandwich or roll-up paired with something salty, a yogurt, fruit, and drink.  But by the time May rolls around…this is me.

Anyone else feel me?

One thing I’ve learned since having kids in school is pack what they’ll eat.  Nixon is my super picky, would prefer to eat junk food 24/7 kind of kid.  Almost his entire kindergarten year I packed him fruit thinking maybe he’d get hungry enough to eat it.  Did he ever?  NO!  So now I pack what I know my kids will eat.  And that looks very different for each of my kiddos.

Ebby Lee prefers a variety of food in a Yumbox...her perfect lunch would be a turkey and cheese sandwich, with chips and salsa, strawberries, and a yogurt.

Nixon would prefer a Lunchable or Uncrustable, chip bags, and some sort of sweet treat.  #keepingitreal

Bowen is EASY!  He’ll pretty much eat what I send him and typically asks me {VERY NICELY} to not send something again if he’s not a fan.

Britt is going to be very different.  I think I’ve mentioned before she prefers a carb and dairy diet {don’t we all?  ha!}.  My plan for her is to pack mac-and-cheese or some kind of noodles.

My two big kids helped me pack their lunches every day.  And I did a big ole happy dance if they ever asked to eat in the cafeteria because NO PACKING!  😉
