Luckily, I only have to make one as other's aren't in school yet. I don't mind making them especially since all I have to do is make up honey and Jam sandwiches and in the morning he chooses which 3 items he takes. If he takes a kitkat, he has to take 2 fruits but if he takes a yogurt & choc raisns, he can have one fruit. It's so easy to let him have choices and avoid morning tantrums lol
One evening make enough cheese/ ham etc sandwiches to last 2 weeks. Put in the freezer. Take sandwich out for each child each morning and Throw in box, add a banana, few cherry tomatoes and yogurt. Close lids.
It's midnight and I have five packed lunches to make. I remember delaying tactics for homework when I was at school and this feels exactly the same...hence I'm on the computer and not stood in the kitchen. Must get up and sort them out. Usually I fork out for school dinners but I had my tax bill in Jan and had to budget. I'm so so so so so bored of making packed lunches. S
Sorry, new on this forum but it seemed the perfect place to vent! It wouldn't be so bad if they all ate the same thing!
