I was pretty good about packing lunches for Aiden until kindergarten and the addition of Callen. I
was am so exhausted I just couldn’t do it. I had to give up something so I gave that up. Trying to pack 2 lunches for 2 boys with wildly different ideas of good, healthy food was overwhelming.
Aiden did fine. His school lunches weren’t that bad. Caleb’s weren’t bad in preschool either but he is very picky and they don’t make him take a bite of any vegetable if he doesn’t want to. (And frankly with all them kids they shouldn’t have to!)
This year I finally splurged on the Planet Box Rover lunch system for my boys. 1: because I’m over buying little plastic bits and pieces and then not finding what I need and having to get a whole new system 2: I’ve spent the same amount of money in a year and a half of plastic lunch contraptions as this system 3: they are so fun 4: beyond durable 5: the Instagram feed of lunch pack pics alone is inspiring
So far we have done well and Caleb is so excited he is starting to get into eating better. He actually asked yes you read that right ASKED for carrots in his lunch!!! I hope this becomes a trend for us.
