Sausages & Jacket Potatoes
Every now and again I post a pic of my boy's lunchboxes on this site (for regular food blogs https://www.facebook.com/TheArtofNutritionNZ/)
The stuff on the little plate gets reheated and put into a small food thermos. I do this rather than packing a "traditional style lunchbox" for a couple of reasons:
1) Convenience - so simple to throw extra potatoes in the oven or sausages in the pan
2) Quick - takes me minutes to pack lunchboxes
3) Variety - I'm all about the rotations. Different food every day provides different nutrients/interest. This is even more important for selective eaters - we don't want them to get stuck in food "jags"
4) Not sandwiches - everyone who works with me knows I feel that sandwiches are often a fairly nutrient low option. Not that I'm against sandwiches but if the daily menu reads toast, sandwich with spread, bread with dinner - we're just not getting a good spread of nutrients into the kids
If you have a selective eater and want to test how to do this get in touch and we can send you a video that explains a gentle way to approach it ...
