Packing lunches has never been my favourite activity. I try to give the girls different things to eat but so how or another they end up with sandwiches, veggies and fruit.
With school only a few weeks away, I’m trying to come up with some different ideas to make lunch more exciting for the girls. The balanced day breaks still can be a challenge. I try to give them a bunch of little things to eat so that they can pick and choose what they eat at each break.
This Brocolli, Chicken & Pesto Rotini Salad would be fun in smaller portions!
Use all of the ingredients as listed on the recipe and follow the directions for the regular recipe.
Thinking inside the box…the bento box
To make it “bento-style” (and this might sound a little funny), take the dish a part. Take 3 containers and separate out the chicken, broccoli and the remainder of the salad. This will allow your kids to have finger foods!
I know that my girls love to have fun with with there food and there is nothing more fun than eating with their hands!
So parents…if you’re stuck in a the sandwich-rut like me, think in side the box!
