Last month I shared a few lunches I made for Mila. Mila goes to preschool a few days a week and making her lunch in the morning is one thing I truly love to do. Honestly, my lunches are NOT revolutionary. They are simple, healthy and Mila eats pretty much all of it at school. Which is a plus for me. We do have a little rule, whatever she doesn’t finish at school she has to finish after school while back at home. Typically whats left over is a few carrots, berries or half her sandwich. She never fights me (not yet anyways ;) on eating her leftover lunch. Mila usually is the one to asks to finish her lunch while in the car on the ride back home.
We have been loving these Yumbox bento style lunch boxes. We have a three different sizes and I use the two larger ones for preschool lunches and the smaller one to carry snacks on the go. I love these Yumbox lunch boxes because they are sturdy, seal the food within and keeps it fresh, and can come apart for easy cleaning. Check out what Mila has been eating during lunch and snack time below …

Like I said, my lunches for Mila aren’t the most ground breaking. But I love them and so does Mila. I try to give her a bunch of fruit and veggie options. So far she enjoys cut carrots and snap peas the best. Mila also likes sliced cheese rather than string cheese. Which is great because I can cut it into cute shapes. Some things I put into her lunch that are store bought snacks include; goldfish crackers, RX Kids Bars, organic fruit leather strips, pretzel sticks, organic fruit snacks, yogurt covered raisins and yogurts. To me these are the more healthier options out there, but really find what works for your child and family!
Happy Lunch Making!
