Are you confused about what to put in your child’s lunchbox? Unsure of which snacks to pack or how to get the kids eating food that’s actually healthy for them? You’re not alone! Almost every mother has experienced some kind of lunchbox dilemma. So how do you get the kids eating a healthy lunch each day?”We do a special shop each week, where my son gets to choose (with a bit of pushing in the right direction) what he wants for lunch. He heads off with a basket and chooses his own snacks and lunches, brings them back, we decide together if they go in the trolley or back on the shelf, and why.”
