RESOURCES TO HELP YOU:
So far I fill his lil Ninja Turtle Lunch tin with fruit(vary from day-to-day as he chooses),a granola bar, a juice box (flavours varied) and a slice of bread(spreads I change daily)
I have come across a fantastic tip if your child or you like sliced fruit added to your lunch box but can’t stand to open the bag and see all your fruit has browned.
Keeping your sliced apples from browning
1 Cup of cold water
1 Teaspoon of fine salt
Add water and salt to a bowl – stir.
Slice your apple as you please and place it in the bowl
Let the apple sit for 5 minutes
Drain and rinse the apples a few times
Place them in you lunch box/ ziplock bag or plain old plastic lunch bag and Voila’ no brown fruit snacks.
(FYI – I’ve been doing this with little man’s Granny Smith Apples and yesterday I opened his lunchbox after school and he had left two little pieces and they were still fine….no browning)
Good Luck cant wait to see all the Lunch Box ideas
