So my discriminating, vegetarian 7 y.o. is starting second grade tomorrow. I am already in a funk about what to send in her lunch box.
The fact that I got one of those new, snazzy lunch sacks that keeps itself cold will not impress her if she opens it up to find a PB&J, baby peeled carrots, cucumber slices and sunflower butter cookies AGAIN. (Even if the sack is her favorite color (orange) and the veggies are gorgeous, expensive-as-hell and totally local and organic. Oh, and the cookies are home-made.) She'll thank me for my effort by returning said lunch, intact, to enjoy myself.
Fresh ideas? HELP!!
