A Few Things to Keep in Mind
Before even heading to the grocery store to pick up on items, it’s important first to be aware of what food restrictions your child’s school and/or class may have. We are all now very used to the nut-free environments at school, but there can be other items your child can’t bring. It may take a little reading at first as you look at the ingredients on all the boxes and cartons at the supermarket but soon you’ll be familiar with what is safe and what isn’t.
Another thing to keep in mind is to have on hand a selection of containers that will work for your child’s tastes. If you child prefers hot lunches, you may want to pick up on a few spill-proof insulated containers, whereas if your child is more of a sandwich type you can find all kinds of perfectly sized reusable containers. It’s all about making your life easy, convenient, and quick when it comes to packing lunches.
