Do you have TEENS who don’t want to eat the school lunches? My kids hate school lunches, but they need to eat so guess what…Mom will pack you a lunch every day then! When I said that I could see the disappointment on their faces. I didn’t quite understand their hesitation until they told me I pack baby lunches. What the heck are Baby Lunches! Oh, so they don’t like it when I decorate the fruit or write them love notes. I guess the sandwiches in different shapes is something my teens DO NOT want in their school lunches.
4 Tips for Packing School Lunches for Teens
- Collaborate: I include my kids in grocery shopping, dinner suggestions so why not their lunches. I want to know what they will eat. I don’t want items they will throw away, that is a waste of money and food. I will take at least one of the kids to the store..which is usually Walmart!
- Pack Leftovers: My kids love my dinners so why not save money and food by packing leftovers. I plan to make a little extra when I know they would like the meal in their lunches.
- Mix It Up: Now provide different options each week. My kids will get bored if I pack an apple and PB& J every week, so I need to shake it up.
- Try New Foods: Pinterest is FULL of ideas so why not experiment. Go through ideas with the kids. I love to try new things on my teens.
