We’re all feeling a little under the weather at the Fleck house, so I thought I would give myself a blogging break and open up the comments for discussion today. – Kara
Last week, I mentioned my family’s goals for the new year, including our goal of breaking out of our food rut and trying new ingredients and recipes.
In the comments to that post, a few readers admitted that they seem to have fallen into a food rut as well, singling out lunchtime specifically as a meal that can be difficult to bring new inspirations and fresh tastes to the table.
Peanut butter and jelly, anyone?
Simple Kids has covered lunchtime before:
- Mariah’s list of Eco-Friendly Lunch Containers and ideas for packing a smarter lunch
- Megan’s article on Finger Foods for Toddlers: Lunch and Dinnertime Ideas
However, I know we can always use new ideas and one of the most helpful things for me, as a parent, is to hear from other parents what meals are successful for them with their kids. This topic is one that we get a lot of email about, so I know that it would be helpful for many parents facing a lunchtime rut.
I’d love to hear what other parents are serving up mid-day.
What do you serve your kids for lunch? What are some lunchtime favorites at your house?
The comments are open for discussion. What is for lunch?
