Today K told me a teacher saw her Planetbox lunch and said, "Wow, that is a lot of food!" What do you think? Am I packing too much food? I can say this...so far even though it has only been two lunches she has not come home stating she is starving.
Today I packed pepperoni with a touch of mustard bus sandwiches (I wrote on them with edible markers), black olives, sliced yellow bell peppers, Gardetto's Snack Mix and the Dove dark chocolate candy.
K asked for a separate item for her snack. I guess they are allowed to have a snack at recess if they are hungry. I peeled and separated 2 cutie's. The Funtainer bottle drink is apple juice.
Okay when I picked K up from school she said her lunch and snack were very good. I had to run a couple of errands after I picked her up. After a few minutes in the car, she said she was hungry. I asked if she had any lunch leftover and she said yes. I asked her to eat it as not to be wasteful. So when we got home this is what I found. Yellow bell peppers, olives, cutie's, Dove candy, apple juice, almost a whole school bus, and some Gardetto's gone.
So far the fruits and veggies I have been packing she already likes. I will eventually try to branch out to other fruits and veggies to see if I can get her to eat them. I am not so sure after seeing the sandwiches but I won't give up. She did ask for the Pepperoni sandwich again for tomorrow but in a different shape. I told her she needed to eat more of it if I made it again. We shall see.
