This Fall I will have a Kindergartener! Someone pinch me or slap me or do something because I feel like when the day comes, I’m going to be in complete shock and then fall to my knees and ugly cry when she walks through the threshold of “big school”. It just seems like yesterday when I sat in the rocking chair begging her to sleep in her crib more than 2 hours.
But alas, the time has come and we’re already getting prepared for the Fall by talking about the big changes that will be coming. One area that she’s very excited about is lunch time at school. The preschool that she attended this year was only 3 hours per day so no lunch or snacks were required. She’s missed the days of packed lunches and bento boxes, so she’s made it clear that she wants to take her lunch to Kindergarten.
I’m excited to share the perfect lunch kit for kids’ lunch boxes! The Rubbermiad Lunch Blox system is what my daughter will be carrying this Fall in her lunch box – the size is ideal for kids. I used to try to pack her lunches with regular storage wear and just found them too big and heavy – not a problem at all with this system.
The Lunch Blox set also has a built in freeze-able blue ice tray that snaps right on the bottom of the larger pink blox. Even when it’s frozen, it is light so it doesn’t weigh her lunch box down.
To get her in the mood [and to add even more to her excitement], I’ve been creating her some fun lunches during the week. This past week I put a twist on her favorite lunch food – peanut butter and jelly – and turned it into sushi! She loves getting her own chopsticks when we go eat sushi but she hasn’t quite mastered the taste of real sushi yet, so I make fun alternatives like this toddler-friendly Peanut Butter & Jelly Sushi!
It really couldn’t be easier to make. You simply layer a tortilla with Peanut Butter and Jelly, roll it up, and slice! Paired with sides of fish shaped cheese, Trader Joe’s Apple Sticks, Inner Peas, cherry tomatoes, and fresh fruit – it makes for a super simple, fresh, and nutritious lunch for kiddos!
