Today’s guest post is from Jen of Tatertots and Jello. She doesn’t need much of an introduction since many of you probably already know her. She is an all around fabulous crafter and blogger. Love her. I’m excited for her to share school lunch ideas for picky eaters. I have one in my home. So this was the perfect post for me.
Hi – I’m Jen from Tatertots and Jello. I adore Tiffany and so excited to be here today!
Do you have a picky eater?
Out of my four kids, one is an extremely picky eater.
In fact, although she has been going to public school for over 8 years, she refuses to eat school lunch. So we have had to get a little creative with our lunchtime options!
One thing that I found helpful was finding a great lunchbox. Our favorite was a lunchbox that is actually a bento picnic basket that I found on clearance at Target. My daughter loves it because it has different trays and the food stays clean. She doesn’t like her food touching each other.
Another great thing I found was a little thermos so she can take soup to school. It keeps the soup warm the whole day.
If you have a picky eater, here are five things that we have found to make school lunch a little more fun!
2. Make food fun to look at like this lunch from Thereses Verden!
3. Or add some jokes to your child’s lunch, like these Joke Printables from Kristen Duke Photography.
4. Something that might help make lunch time more successful is getting your child involved in PLANNING lunches. Print out these Lunch Time Planning Printables from A Little Delightful to do that.
5. And if you still are having a hard time getting your picky eater to eat, you can make one of these Picky Eater Charts from Lil Luna with a great incentive for making their eating goals!
Thanks for letting me stop by!!
