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 d 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.
