A new contest will start tomorrow or Saturday. It’s a good one so don’t miss out!
I find making school lunches difficult! One of my pet peeves is making sandwiches (I know it’s weird, but true), I don’t like making salads either, but that’s another post (sounds boring so maybe not).
This was the lunch Sam took to school with him today. Tuna sandwich on whole wheat (they both love tuna), Juice (with veggie), frozen Yogurt tube (probably has a bunch of sugar added, don’t tell me I am happy not knowing for sure), cheese, cucumber & carrots, granola bar (kind with the health check).
Sam is a healthier eater than Lizzy, and while he would probably rather have chips and pop, he’ll happily eat all of the items above.
Lizzy well let’s just say, “she and sugar have a special bond”. Her lunch is also fairly decent (because I insist) but she is fussier so there is more sandwich, more carrots and NO cheese or yogurt.
Sunday we went shopping for the weeks lunches, I don’t like to leave my camera out in the car, so I had Lizzy carry it around (seriously I don’t generally grocery shop with my camera).
Can I take pictures mom?
What should I take them of?
Just take pictures of stuff you like.
OOOH, Mommy can we get Lucky Charms?
Can we get Wagon Wheels for our lunches!
NO! Why? Because, they’ll last about 1 day and they’ll be gone. Put them back!
How about some chips mom?
What about these chips you like?
no, well OK get one two bags for your dad.
Can I get some pop!
NO … NO … NO …
Please mommy, I’ll buy you these flowers!
How do I delete pictures I don’t want?
Can I have a treat for being good?
Sure, pick out a pack of sugarless gum (hee hee hee … you should have seen the look she gave me!)
You should get this mommy!
Watch it DUDE, you’re pushing your luck … give me my camera!
Do you have trouble getting your kids to ‘want’ healthy foods? If you have any tips or ideas I’ll take them! Comment here or write about them on your blog and let me know!
Better start working on that new contest!
