See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
I probably shouldn't admit this: but as much as back-to-school time puts a song in my step, I was dreading having to pack my daughter's lunch for school. We're committed to the "lunch from home" thing to make sure she gets something healthy, but sometimes even I'm bored by what I put in her bag.
Oh gee, look what it is! Another apple/box of raisins/string cheese/turkey on wheat? It's no wonder my husband and I tend to "forget" that it's our turn to make lunch so the other ends up on the hook. We need to liven things up -- for her sake and ours!
I'm committed to actually make this whole school lunch making thing a little more enjoyable. I've started a list of goodies to slip in the lunch bag to brighten her day. Feel free to borrow for your kiddo's lunch!
What do you put in your kids' lunch to cheer them up?

Most elementary schools have banned food sharing, but your kiddo can engender a little goodwill at the lunchtable with some of these instead. I have it on good authority (aka my 7-year-old) that the glitter tattoos are especially hot right now.
