I hate making school lunches, and I feel like I’m not alone. It’s not the actual making of them that’s such a pain, it’s trying to give your kids something they’ll actually eat while not sending the same thing day after day after day that is more the struggle.
I make four lunches a day, and as much as I try to make sure they’re always pretty well balanced, sometimes it’s nice to throw a little treat in there for the kids.
With Valentine’s Day here, I packed a handful of Hershey Kisses and a few of those M&M’s with the love messages on them for my kids as a special treat. I don’t do it often and I know it will put a little smile on my kids faces.
One mom recently sent her daughter to school with a little treat in her lunchbox and was shocked when she received a very chastising note home from the school.
