They might get a little messed up in transit to school, but they have fun putting it back together before they eat it! Of course some items get wrapped to separate from the more moist ingredients to keep them from getting soggy. It's not nearly as much work as it looks and it makes my kiddo a happy luncher! I might even get a mention or two during lunch...
This one is just too cute and contains many of my son's favorite things. Packaging will be your biggest hurdle to get over. I reuse the heck out containers from anywhere and everywhere. To go boxes, deli container and I have a slight addiction to buying the ones that catch my eye. It's cheaper than a shoe addiction and they stack better when stored! :)
These are also fun for lunches at home, and it takes away the chance of it getting messed up in the containers! Finger food are fun to throw in and fun for the little ones. I have even made my own up like these for work, lol. It gets a few questions asked, but really I do it to see how well it travels before sending it with my son. Trial and error, I'll make that sacrifice in the name of a good lunch!
Making lunch fun is a easy and healthy reward for kids. The more fun you make it the more likely they are to eat it. Healthy in disguise and gone before you know it!
