A little bit of time in the kitchen can make all the difference. My daughter started complaining about having the SAME ham and cheese and mustard sandwich each day in her lunch box. Every morning, she’d make it herself, but only complained that she didn’t like it a few weeks later!
Hmmmm… I looked through my cookbooks and handed her one about kids lunchboxes. I let HER look through it – as she’s now 10 and highly capable of making a decision about her lunch AND making it herself. She chose a tuna wrap! So – that day I bought the ingredients, and that night she made the tuna salad:
Put in a bowl:
1/3 cup mayo
1 can tuna – drained
¼ cup corn – drained
sprinkle of salt and pepper
1 tsp mustard
¼ green capsicum diced
Mix them together and feel free to add other things like: pickles, sun dried tomato, herbs, scallions…
Spread the mixture down the center of a wrap with lettuce and cheese, fold up the bottom, then roll and wrap with a paper towel or baking paper to keep it rolled up. Don’t forget to pop in a pc of fruit and another snack- she loves crackers…
She now comes home from school with an empty lunch box! Excellent result.
