We are starting school this week and I am having all the feelings, y’all! My oldest baby is off to kindergarten and I had no idea that I would be this emotional about it. While it is an emotional time, we are very excited for this new chapter and already love his school and the people there so much. So many of our close friends and some of our family go there, so I know we will feel right at home there. I asked you ladies on Instagram the other day what you liked to pack in your kid’s lunch because I am trying to branch out a little bit this year (at least for the first part until I totally resign and stick to PB&J every day). Some of your ideas were really great, so I thought I would share them to give you guys some ideas if you get stuck like I do.
The most common answer was a sandwich!
Chicken Salad and crackers
Salad with fruit
Waffles and Bacon (Breakfast Food)
Leftovers from the night before (I am PRO this idea)
Cheese and Crackers
Lunch Sides and Snacks:
Veggies and hummus (or ranch)
There are a couple of kids in Sophie’s class who are highly allergic to peanuts and dairy, so we are trying to get creative with the lunches she can take. It’s tough because she loves PB&J sandwiches and is not a big meat eater. We are going to try this peanut butter substitute and I will report back with how she likes it!
I hope this list was helpful. Please let me know if you have any other ideas that I can add to this list for everyone! If you have already started school, I hope it is off to a great start, and if you are starting back this week, I will be standing there holding tissues with you praying for our babies to spread their wings and fly. Okay, now that I am getting cheesy and cliche, I’m calling it a day.
