We're at the half way point of Kale's summer camp, which means I only have three more weeks of lunches to do. As much as I love how cute the final product is and love talking with Kale about what he enjoyed, I will be happy to hand over the responsibility to the caterer's once school starts in September!
Kale is not a picky eater and he has a very healthy appetite, so even though the Lunch Bots are mostly empty when I pick him up, I'm starting to be able to pick out his favourites because every last crumb is missing. He's definitely a meat-lover and seems to always do a good job on the deli-meats, chicken breast slices, and meatballs. He's also big on cheese and fruit. We normally have pasta for dinner once a week and I'll put some leftovers in for him, which also get gobbled up pretty quickly.
The one thing I noticed Kale not eating much of were the crackers - which is weird because I know he loves them. One day I realized that the crackers were getting a bit soggy because they were absorbing the moisture from the other items in the container. Ideally, we'd have a separate Lunch Bot for these, but considering I only have three weeks to go and they're not exactly cheap, I'll save my pennies and put the crackers in a zip lock bag.
What are your kids favourites? I've got three more weeks to go, so keep your suggestions coming!
