Hey there and Happy Friday!! This week has been super rainy and freezing cold, so I'm looking forward to relaxing, reading and staying warm with this nugget while she snores on my lap. Beignet hates the rain, so I'm sure she won't willingly go outside the entire weekend.
I hope these lunchbox ideas make next week easier for you! Some things I've noticed through the years of packing school lunches: dips make a difference! BBQ sauce, ranch, honey mustard, my kids love 'em all and are definitely more willing to eat new foods when they come with a dip. Also, cutting something in a new way can also make them seem more appealing. Carrot coins are just baby carrots cut into rounds, cucumbers cut into long sticks are easier to dip and look different than the typical circles - mix it up and I bet your kids will love it!
