Among the tedious chores a parent or caregiver has on a day-to-day basis is making lunches and snacks for kids.
You spend time making something you think will be a home run, and you find it there at the end of the day when you clean out their lunchbox. You don’t want your kids to go through the day hungry, but you don’t want to waste food either.
Finding balance between what your child will eat in the time they have allotted for lunch and what will stay fresh in the lunchbox is a challenge.
Packed lunches typically are seen as the healthier option, but this is often wishful thinking.
