This is the time of year that kids open sad sacks during lunchtime. By now, even formerly “exciting” menu items are boring.
Up the lunch game with a foldout placement, colorful cutlery, or foods packed in mini-containers, when being surprised at what you find adds fun and peer interest.
Go back to that list you made last fall, when you vowed to help your child pack lunches with sticks that transform chicken nuggets into pops and spiral veggies that turn root veggies into twists. Refer to your list of stackable protein to layer on a cracker and colorful dips to brighten even a cold winter day.
Even picky eaters will take a second look (and perhaps another bite.)
