Most parents find making school lunches A BIG FAT PUNISH. Or is that just me? What did you take for lunch as a kid? If you’re a parent, what do you pack for your kids?
I try and be very health conscious with my little ones (who are too little for school yet) and was reading all these articles to try and get a few suggestions for when daycare starts next week, but they just blew my mind. Homemmade pita crisps & beetroot dip; roast beef wraps; sushi, carrot, sprout & sultana sandwiches, sweetcorn & zucchini fritters & fresh Vietnamese rolls were the suggestions in one Sunday newspaper article. Don’t get me wrong – this sounds yummy, but where do parents get the time and do the kids eat it?
My hubby reckons nobody but nutritionists pack this stuff for their kids, but I don’t know.
What was in your child’s lunch box today?”
In my child’s lunchbox today: leftover sushi from last night and some fruit. Phew. I didn’t have to prepare a damn thing. It’s barely been a week back to school/kindy and already I’m flagging.
In my lunchbox as a kid: I was quite partial to a beetroot sandwich on white from the canteen and a chocolate moove. Sometimes, a cream bun also. If I had to bring from home, it was something unappetising on Vogel bread.
