Why did it take me so long to discover the benefits of a thermos? I have struggled for many years to provide healthy lunches for my son. But avoiding processed meats, with a finicky eater, results in many uneaten lunches.
Recently a friend of mine told me how she gave her kids leftovers for lunch. Warm pastas and soups, anything that can fit in a thermos works. I know this isn’t new information, but for some reason I felt I needed to create a masterpiece for lunch each day. Now, at least two or three times a week I pack our dinner into a pre warmed thermos. And it works! I think keeping the lunch box simple is a good idea. Last night we had whole wheat pasta, with a homemade tomato cream sauce, grated parmesan cheese. Packed it to the rim in the morning and this evening, when I unpacked my son’s lunch bag, it was almost all gone.
So don`t forget to be creative with your kids lunches
