I have mixed emotions about sending The Boy off officially to preschool. It’s hard to believe that he’s three and ready for a “structured” daily curriculum. We’re excited about his school and know that it will be a wonderful journey for him. Early education is the foundation for his entire school “career” and I know we’re making the right choice. The school supplies morning and afternoon snack, and we’re responsible for packing his lunch.
Lunches made easy with Glad Food Storage
The Boy is a selective eater at home, but get him around his friends and he’ll try anything! I’m so excited to send him off to school with a variety of bright and colorful items. The Glad Food Storage containers make it easy to pack different items into his lunch box.
He’ll be enjoying cherry tomatoes from my dad’s garden. I know the cherry tomatoes will be safe in his lunch box and won’t be squished by the time The Boy and his friends sit down for lunch.
Don’t they look delicious? There are a few left, so I may have a enjoy some with my lunch!
For his main course, I know he’ll love this easy-to-make Greek pasta salad.
Be sure to make this Greek pasta salad the day before you want to eat it, the flavors need time to develop. While a box of mini penne is boiling, thinly slice a red onion and a green bell pepper. Once the mini penne has cooked, rinse it well with COLD water then add the red onion, green bell pepper, Greek salad dressing, and feta cheese crumbles. Mix well and store in a Glad Food Storage container in the refrigerator.
I also give him a yogurt and a cup with a blend of half water and half juice.
It’s comforting to know that the Glad Food Storage containers will hold up to rough and tumble toddlers!
What are you packing for your children’s school lunch this year? Will you be trying any new recipes?
