Kids love the chance to assemble their own lunches.
Not the night before, mind you. Theyre quite happy to leave the packing of lunch to you. Were talking about when they eat it. Present them with a variety of agreeable ingredients, and the little ones have a blast assembling their own sandwiches, pizzas, fajitas and other kid-friendly creations.
Its part of the reason those boxed lunches available at the grocer are so popular. But theres no reason you need to pay a premium for those or be a slave to their questionable quality.
When you assemble your own, you can use healthier ingredients you and your kids love. You also can include a wider variety of ingredients than the typical box includes and have it assembled in little time.
The first step is to get a lunch box with multiple small compartments. Bento-style lunch boxes are popular and widely available online. But a collection of small plastic containers works just as well.
Then have your kids help choose what goes together and what goes in their boxes. And take the whole thing a little less seriously. Be creative with the combinations; its supposed to be fun. Weve started you off with some ideas for combinations, but let your imaginations go.
