Toddler Lunch

Its been about two years that I am sending homecooked meals with Y to his daycare. It is totally do-able ( is there such a word..hmm??) I will be posting snack and lunch pictures when possible. There are days when clicking picture is a task! So will skip those days.

The idea here is to share meals fit for toddlers that they can eat by themselves. It takes 20-30 minutes to make and pack these meals. If you do some prep the night before, it will be easier and save you a lot of snoooooze time.

The best part is, you can pack a bag of fruits or box of lunch for yourself while you are at it..!

Todays Lunch Bag:
Snack #1: Cut up Grapes & Raspberries.
Snack #2: Wheathins with almond crunch and a mini box of raisins
Lunch: Mac and cheese with broccoli, carrots and peas. I added velvetta cheese and a dash of pepper. Milk and bread provided at Y's daycare.

  2. i need these toooooo....thanks please keep them coming please!

  3. You are the best! Thanks for getting it up so quick! Hey quick question. Do u use a bento box for his lunch? Any tips on good boxes?

  4. @ Vidya....Sure will do
    @ are welcome.
    @ was your idea.Thank you. About boxes, I use individual small colorful containers. The lunch container is refrigerated at the daycare and the other two can be kept at room temperature. Bento lunch boxes should work too.

  5. Neelam..this is some good work!Thanks girl for inspiring us and sharing ur ideas..helps a ton..
    BTW..Velveeta was a good recommendation..I had never used it b4 and A really liked it in his Mac n Cheese..
