I'm a firm believer in "setting kids up for success". Giving them something that they love in the lunchbox is a great way to get it emptied.
I use a thermos most days so I can avoid the sandwich trap and use food I've already cooked for dinner (it may have been prepared previously and frozen) and so not have to do much in the mornings.
Here Joe is getting a slab of lasagne which is vegetarian (so Max can eat as well) which he will be quite happy to discover in the thermos.
It's warm, it's filling and it's tasty. What's not to love?!
Have you tried warm pasta if that's your child's favourite food?
Judith is passionate about good food and is even more passionate about enabling other people to enjoy the wide variety of fresh food available today.
