I was inspired yesterday by Tairalyn and the lunch box she brought filled with lots of fun food items for her daughter, when we went out to the mall yesterday. She had packed this awesome little lunch box full of great food options for her daughter. It turned a light bulb on for me that I should start doing the same thing. Tairalyn was kind enough to let Everly actually try a few things too. Everly had dried mango for the first time, sure she had to gum it to death, but she loved it. Thank you to Sofia for sharing! It melted my heart seeing her reach out to Everly to share her snacks, from one stroller to another. I hope Everly is that good about sharing when she gets older.
While bottles are still the majority of Everly’s meals, she does enjoy food. All things besides her bottles are really a bonus right now, but soon actual food items will be her main intake for the day. So now I find myself on the hunt for a good lunch box, and for snack ideas. I’ve been in a rut of just grabbing Mum-Mums for Everly… it’s time to step it up.
Do any other parents out there pack a lunch box for their children when they go out during the day? What sort of snacks or meals do you pack? Do you worry about keeping things cold?
