Elizabeth, here. I hope you had a chance to read Anna’s recent post about the importance of eliminating diet talk from schools. And did you see our new resource to share with teachers and coaches? It makes it so easy to reach out and share your beliefs about food with anyone who works with your children.
Has everyone settled into the new school year? If you’re anything like me, it’s the time of year you get stuck in the lunch-making-ho-hums. I don’t love packing lunches and get tired of it pretty quickly! As a way to prevent the ho-hums and mix things up a bit, I thought I’d share a few more ideas for quick and easy lunches to add to the LUNCH LIST.
What’s For Lunch?
Leftover Pizza, Clementines and Homemade Oatmeal Craisin Cookies
A teenager or older child would likely need at least two slices of pizza depending on the slice size. (These are actually quite small. I had to cut this piece of pizza in two to fit it in the container). Or add a Greek yogurt or some trail mix to lunch if there’s only one slice per older child. For younger children, make a hole in the top of the clementines to make it easy for littler hands to peel them, or just peel them before putting them in the lunchbox.
I love these Sistema lunch cubes as I mentioned here a few weeks ago. They have plenty of room for a full lunch. And the fact that the container closes between sections means less likelyhood the pizza or cookies will taste like clementines and vice versa.
My youngest loves leftover pizza for lunch! This makes me happy because it’s so easy and it really satisfies her. …
