Part of my favorite thing about Kiddo's camp: they provide lunch. Which means Mama has had a lovely sabbatical from packing that Hello Kitty lunch box. Granted, my daughter had two choices of lunch: a jelly sandwich or Amy's Organics Pizza Snacks. You could say we were in a bit of a rut with lunch by the end of the year. The only variety was the fruit I packed. This year, we are going to get a good groove going with her midday meal. Anyone else need lunch ideas? Here are a few I found:
Wrap it up -- Love this turkey wrap idea. All you need is a whole-wheat tortilla, one avocado mashed, sliced deli turkey, maybe some lettuce and shredded cheese. Spread the avocado on, then chunk in the other ingredients and wrap it up.
Forget the Bread -- Who says you need bread? Just roll some turkey around a string cheese and have some baby carrots on the side.
Breakfast for Lunch -- I've seen this idea everywhere...because it is a great alternative. Cereal or a toasted waffle, maybe some yogurt. Add some fruit and that is one yummy lunch, er, breakfast, er lunch.
Soup it up -- Really. Break out that thermos and cook up some easy soup or pasta. A perfect idea for a winter lunch to fill that tummy.
Same thing, different presentation -- If your kiddo loves his sandwich, why not jazz it up with tools? Grab some great cookie cutters and send him a ham and cheese airplane or dinosaur.
