School lunches

There are many healthy mom blogs posting school lunch ideas, so I am going to make this short and just post the pictures of the lunches I make for my daughter. The plan was to take a picture every day. Yeah, that didn't happen and probably never will. The lunches are also not very creative and cute looking. Just healthy stuff she likes.
We also had to figure out lunches she can eat fast, fill her up and give her the energy she needs for the rest of the day.
I was shocked to learn that first graders already do not have a snack break anymore and lunch time is only 20minutes short. We eat meals as a family at a table, we chat and eat slow and sometimes it takes an hour. 
So our girl needs to learn to eat quickly and safe the chatting for recess.(-; 
School rules also forbid her to take a bar out to the playground after lunch, I guess they want to keep the playground from getting cluttered with wrappers. Oh, all the fun rules and policies that are involved in keeping kids under control at an elementary school.(-; 

As you can see, there is a lot of pasta and pinto beans.(-; The little patties in the   3rd picture are homemade falafel.

A thumbs up to all the Mammas and Daddies who slave in the kitchen everyday to provide their kiddos a healthy school lunch! You rock! It is worth it!!! 

Love, n.
