Well school went back today and Marlee was excited to go back which was great. I must say I do operate better having routine of the daily school drop off and pick ups and having to get things done between those times. I really did enjoy the time off with the kids and at the same time found it challenging being out of routine.
As you can see with the kids lunchboxes below, I have packed quite similar lunches for the kids the past couple of days and ready for tomorrow as well. I am all about using up leftovers and sticking with things that work as well. Marlee’s lunchbox came back empty today and I’m not sure if it’s because she loves her new design Yumbox or if she was just hungry. It does seem to fit a lot more food then the last design of the original which is great and the fact it is leakproof is awesome! I highly recommend them along with the other lunchboxes I use as well. They all have varying qualities and have different benefits of using each one.
Inside the above Panino Yumbox lunchbox is: grated carrot, capsicum, sugar free pikelet with butter, plain homemade popcorn, grated cheese and homemade zucchini slice.
In the above Lunchbots lunchbox is capsicum, two slices of homemade zucchini slice, tomato sauce for dipping in the kids konserve pot, cheese and Vegemite on mountain bread wraps and a sugar free pikelet with butter.
In the two Yumbox lunchboxes are cheese and Vegemite on mountain bread wraps, plain homemade popcorn, capsicum and grated cheese. The two easy lunchboxes are packed with sugar free pikelets with butter, grated carrot, cheese and Vegemite on mountain bread wraps, plain home cooked popcorn and grated cheese.
For my family and I, I am all about keeping the food simple, fresh and mainly whole foods. I am aiming to cut out processed food from my kids and my diet as the more whole foods they eat without preservatives and additives the better! I also believe fresh is best and I still give them ‘treats’ along the way as well.
