Affordable School Lunches

BlogHer Spotlight

I am good at many things mom-related, but I stink, stink, stink at packing school lunches. Thank goodness for Jessica at Life as a Mom, because sometimes you just need IDEAS, and she's got them coming out of her ears.

Her most interesting tip to me? Pay attention to presentation. I always just throw stuff in baggies willy-nilly, so no wonder my kid brings it right back to me at the bottom of the sack. (sob) Jessica writes:

Fruits that kids love? Try berries, applesauce, apple slices, pink grapefruit, pineapple spears, and grape clusters. Make things as appealing and as easy to eat as possible: remove the berry stems, treat the apple slices with lemon juice to prevent browning, section the grapefruit, cut fresh pineapple, and cut the grapes into small clusters.
