Packing lunches is always my least favorite part of the day. I don't know why. It just seems like an endless, thankless task without the usual reward of feeding kids. You don't get to see kids eat their lunch. Sometimes, lunch comes back untouched. There isn't a real payoff of "being done" either. When the lunch box comes back, you have to unpack it and repack it. What a drag.
Well, I am hoping that this workshop, which is part II of a gluten-free nutrition workshop series, will offer some solutions. Also, by the way, my kids don't actually eat sandwiches! My daughter takes homemade chicken soup in a thermos. My son takes a few slices of salami on thin corn cakes. No one really eats the other stuff I put in (cucumbers, grapes, carrots etc.) I work hard to try to put in fresh food but it really goes untouched. And, from talking with other parents, this is pretty typical for kids. My nine year old has finally started to actually eat her entire lunch--so maybe it is a "not eating" phase that passes.
Well, since I am so not an expert at lunch, I look forward to hearing what Heidi Dean has to say.
I am hoping to make it to this event or that it can be rerun during the week when my kids are in school if I can't make it.
