So now that the kids are back in school another side of mommy mode kicks in.

The school that Reygan and Brendan are attending provide a midmorning breakfast and a mid afternoon snack, so I keep that in mind. Even in knowing that, I want to try to provide enough options and enough food for the kids Because I always have a fear that they will still be hungry. With kids being so active I want to make sure I provide enough and not underdeliver.

I may not be on point every single time I pack their lunches, but I always try to provide a balance of Foods. It always varies.

As you can see both Rey’s and Brendan’s lunch differs. Still working on Bubs with his veggies but we’re making progress.

So far, what I have offered has been enough.

Other foods options I may Provide in their lunches will sometimes be a turkey or peanut butter and jelly sandwich, mashed potatoes, fruit pouches, yogurt tubes etc.

The daily reports I receive back by the end of the day is either “clean plate” or “most”.

The lunch box



  • Chicken sausage links
  • fruit
  • oatmeal


  • Turkey sausage
  • pretzels
  • mandarin oranges cup
  • juice box



  • Biscuits
  • Fruit: pineapple and strawberries


  • Turkey sausage
  • peas and corn
  • mandarin oranges cup
  • Juice box

Moral of the blog- try to give variety and give more than usual. It’s better to provide more than not enough. They’re in the growing and active stage of life!
