I was talking to a friend of mine who has been having trouble coming up with ideas for sack lunches for her 7 year old son. While I never have a reason to pack a sack lunch for anyone in my family now, I do remember those days and have a few ideas I thought I would share.
For an adult on a cold day, nothing beats hot chicken broth in the thermos. It just makes you feel good inside! Sandwich ideas are: Peanut butter & syrup is a nice change from peanut butter & jelly. Most kids and adults like hoagies so buy the hoagie bread and pile on the cold cuts. Other ideas are cheese and crackers, cold pizza (always a huge hit), string cheese, and popcorn as a snack.
I always tried to include a note of love or encouragement. The hubby and kids always looked forward to reading what I had to say for the day. I also always cut the sandwiches diagonally because in our household, when a sandwich is cut like that, it is our way of saying "I love you".
Do you have any sack lunch ideas to share?
