‘Cooler’ Cold Lunches Mini-Tip 4: Bring on the Breakfast
They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day. So why limit it to the morning hours? My kids love it when I pack breakfast for lunch. We’ve done bagels, pancakes, yogurt parfaits. This is one of their favorites…
Yep, cold cereal. Don’t ask me why they think this is so cool, but they love it. I pack a big container of their favorite cereal and a spoon and then buy a cold milk carton from school. Talk about easy. My only rule is that they can’t have cereal twice in one day. If they want a cereal lunch then they need to have a protein-rich breakfast like scrambled eggs or wheat peanut butter toast.
Here’s another popular breakfast for lunch option…
I simply toast up Eggo waffles or grab some leftover homemade waffles from the fridge and stick them in their lunch box containers with a baggie of syrup. At school they tear the waffles into strips and dip away. Again, I try to give them a little protein by packing some trail mix on the side or a few sliced apples with peanut butter. See? I told you these were easy tips.
Just one more mini-tip to go and it’s one of my kid’s favorite cool lunch tricks. You won’t want to miss it! I’ll try to get it up for you tomorrow. Just thought I’d pass it on.
