Links to making lunches that will "delight" your children.
First of all, if I made a lunch like this....
....Natalie would go, "I don't like olives. Or the meat. The cheese also tastes funny to me. Also, the eyes are boring into my soul."
It would also mean I'd waste bread because the cookie cutter would leave the edges. And I'd have to touch olives.
Now this one is cute:
But I'm not about to take the time to make the minion faces. Sometimes people seem to think that because you stay at home with the kids, that you have all this extra time to make character lunches.
Do you want to know what my kids eat?
I know people might say, "Ew, plastic bags!" and I'm all, "I re-use them a few times."
I know people might gasp, "But that's...WHITE bread!" My kids won't eat bread with "stuff" in it.
I know people might shriek, "Carrots sticks are better than chips!" Doritos never killed anyone. The orange stuff might get every dang where, but my kids will be okay. I promise.
I know people might bellow, "Do you know how much SUGAR is in those fruit cups?" Hey. The package said 25% less sugar. So there.
My kids will never have a "fancy" lunch.
But I'm pretty sure they're okay with that.
