So, I finally figured out the right amount of food for Sunshine to bring to lunch, 2 mini burgers, some carrots, small container of fruit and milk! With this lunch, he is no longer the last to finish (which he hated) and he’s full. According to him, it’s the perfect lunch. He now wants them for lunch everyday.
I found these mini burger buns and patty at Trader Joe’ s. Every morning, I grill the patty, toast the bread, and assemble with 1 slice of cheddar cheese, avocado or spinach, and tomatoes. Surprisingly, it doesn’t take that long to make. I precut the avocado and tomatoes so it saves time. Total 15 minutes. I like to make it in the morning so the burgers doesn’t get too cold and the bread does not become soggy.
What do your kids eat for school lunch? I might need more ideas when Sunshine gets tired of hamburgers!
