I like to make lunches for the week in advance; it is not the most exciting 30 to 60 minutes I spend on a Sunday, but having something ready to go for the week is way worth it for me. Sometimes when I skip it, A ends up eating a gross lunch that I slap together and I end up eating PB and J while standing up. By planning ahead, I don’t have to race around during lunch time and instead can take my time to make healthy meals for us.
For A I basically make sure to include a fruit, a veggie, and a main dish with a side of either milk or water. I love to use this tupperware because it is divided into 3 sections. I don’t have enough of them so A gets the cute ones and I’m stuck with plastic bags for my lunches (which usually consist of protein and veggies, with apples and Larabar as a snack).
