I don’t really have time to make a lunch for my son to take to school everyday. I don’t know how other mothers have time to make bento box style lunches. But I would be embarrassed to send a Lunchable, even though it would be socially acceptable at my son’s school. So I cheat. My local Raley’s makes lunches that include a freshly made sandwich, fruit, Goldfish crackers, and a juice box. Once everything is inside his lunch box it looks like I made his lunch (at a lower cost than Lunchables).
Now if I can only convince my local organic market to start making children’s lunches.
