School lunches. The very thought of them fills me with fear. Not the eating, but the preparing.
Although I will admit I was afraid of school dinners. Very afraid. Back then it was all chewy meat, overcooked vegetables, mash followed by hot pink blancmange the consistency of wallpaper paste. I shudder to this day. My poor mother ended up packing me a lunch after the dinner ladies reduced me to tears.
Now The Ladies™ will be lunching every day at school I had to ask some friends for some advice on what makes a good lunch. So armed with some great suggestions and various cookie cutters (now is that a duck or dinosaur above?) I wrote this article for Barista Kids.
On the Barista Kids Facebook page we will be compiling a photo gallery of lunches. So please send me photos of what is in your kids’ lunch boxes and we will publish them to give others inspiration.
