Kids and lunchboxes.
Here we go again for another year!
My kids start off the school year quite enthused about lunches but, as each term draws to a close, we find more and more food coming home uneaten. Which makes me cringe for two reasons;
- Both of the boys are huge, hungry eaters. If they’re leaving food in the lunchboxes they will be hungry. Not an ideal situation when they need fuel to stay focused at school and kindy.
- The wasted food!!!! Throwing lunchbox rejects away just hurts, plain and simple.
After 12 years of making lunch for Ethan, I’m fairly sure that the secret to an empty lunchbox is variety. Peanut butter sandwiches day after day doesn’t cut it and ‘lunchbox fatigue’ quickly sets in.
Farrah’s Snack Wraps are a delicious school lunch solution. I’ve partnered with them to show you how we use their range to give the boys some yummy lunchbox variations that are super easy to make. Available in White (totally dairy free!) and the new Cheesy variety (made from REAL cheese!), the size is perfect for little hands and as you’ll see in my video, they never crack or split when you roll them!
Look out for Farrah’s wraps and little monsters in a supermarket near you, RRP $5.50.
