Making School Lunches
I have written school lunches in the past and you can click here to read!
If you involve your children in making their own lunches, it teaches them several things. First of all, they learn that it takes work to prepare them for school each day. They will begin to see all that you do for them. Secondly, it allows your child to make smart food choices! If you set guidelines for them, then they will be more excited to eat their Clementine, plum, or carrots. I have been amazed at the wise choices our four have made when I let them pack their lunches! Another lesson it teaches is to plan ahead. By making their lunch the night before the next school day, they do not have to rush around unprepared the next morning! What great lessons can be learned simply by letting your children make their own lunches! I always check the lunches after they finish... and often sneak in a lunchbox note!
