Lunch Box Ideas – Week 28

Happy Monday my friends! I hope your week has been stress free thus far. I have been traveling for work quite a bit over the last few weeks and am excited to finally have that behind me. I love travelling, but it’s much more enjoyable when I have my family with me.

While I have been travelling, my little has developed an infatuation with his nose. We have spent way too much time at the doctor over the last month pulling various objects from his nose. A few weeks ago, it was a stick from the playground. Last week it was a pea (literally). I will be happy when this phase passes and I don’t get a weekly call from school that he sucked (insert small object here) up his nose. I am sure it will be replaced with some other crazy, entertaining phase so I should probably just sit back and enjoy the innocence of the current scenario. Anyways, rant over. Onto the real reason why you are here.

Why Weekly Lunch Box Ideas

Each week my son’s daycare provides a menu of what they will feed the kiddos for breakfast and lunch. My daily goal is to provide my son with nutrient dense, real food alternatives that look like what his classmates are eating. Lunch Box Ideas – Week 28 is a recap of my efforts from last week.
