This week I was SO super sick the beginning of the week, so lunches were really simple. I feel like this week Alayna ate a lot better, and what she didn't eat at school she was eager to eat right when she got home. We're getting the hang of this I think!!
She ate school lunch one day this week, so that's why there are only 4 lunches again....I typically don't see myself making her more than one sandwich a week, but this week was rough with me being sick.
Also, I do PLAN the lunch the night before but don't make it until the morning. I write on the back of the notecard what I'm making for breakfast and what I'm packing in Alayna's lunch, so it's ready. Then I flip the card over and leave Alayna a little note for her lunchbox!!
Verdict: She LOVED the heart shaped sandwich and ate almost everything today.
Day 2: turkey rolled up, cheddar cheese slices, kiwi, snap peas, sweet bell pepper, and naan crisps.
Verdict: Alayna liked this lunch too and finished her veggies and cheese at home. Super simple!
Day 3: ground beef and turkey burrito with cheese and spinach, carrots, cinnamon apple slices, and homemade buttermilk ranch for dipping.
Verdict: She snarfed up that burrito!! She said it tasted SO SO good. Finished her veggies and apples at home. I was SO happy she liked the burrito so much!!
Day 4: Ham and turkey sandwich on wheat, kiwi, broccoli and carrots with homemade buttermilk ranch for dipping. Gluten Free cookies for snack.
Verdict: Alayna really liked having a sandwich again and ate almost the whole thing. She ate all her kiwi and only had a couple pieces of vegetables left over. She actually ate her cookies this time, but gave two of them away!!
***I do still send a small snack with her too since they do have a snack toward the end of the day. This week was mixed nuts, a homemade raspberry fruit leather, and a Kashi seed and nut bar.
