Here is my weekly post of my daughter’s school lunches. I hope this is helpful for you busy mom’s stressing about lunch ideas. I was there once and I completely understand how you feel. I prep a lot of the food on weekends and prepare the night before either by setting it out or creating her lunch in my head so I know what I am doing the next morning. I will also be posting some of the recipes throughout the week. Enjoy!
Monday, September 16: Bailee had some leftover Hamburger Stroganoff with whole wheat noodles in her Thermos, a salad with cucumbers, parmesan cheese and olive oil, and an apple. For snack she had a granola bar and string cheese.
Tuesday, September 17: Today she had a homemade “lunchable” with ak-mak crackers, muenster cheese and turkey, watermelon, cucumbers, sugar snap peas and homemade whole wheat zucchini granola chocolate chip cookies (These turned out delicious!). For snack she had a banana and homemade whole wheat chocolate mini donuts.
