My little Kenzie is growing up too quickly and since my attention is more focused on Mason at the moment, I feel a bit sad. She went on her first field trip with her preschool to The Bowers Kidseum (on a rainy day) and guess who had to pack lunch?
I am grateful that lunch is included in her preschool tuition however it was unexpected that fieldtrips would have an additional cost (for admission & bus?), required school shirt and provided lunch. Kenzie is usually picky in her meals and will only gobble down her favorites and sometimes it is also dependent on her mood.
I grew up packing lunch for school and I always had the best options in my light pink cooler (that I could also double as a seat while waiting for the bus). However, I don't think Kenzie is at the age to
appreciate enjoy the ease of lunchables and other processed foods so I had to go to the grocery store.
Kenzie's lunch bag included:
- Boar's Head Turkey and Provolone Sandwich with a hint of mayo cut into Mickey's head shape
- Green Grapes
- Mickey Gummies
- 2 Small Chocolate Chip Cookies
- Quacker Stila Bits & Bar
- 2 Fruitables Juice
I think I did a fairly good job and hope she eats it all. I really want to try making her a Bento Box the next time she needs lunch packed but they seem like a bit more work plus I would have to get special boxes. Have you tried making one? What do you usually pack for your kids?
