When it comes to mothering styles, I’m more like Bridget Jones than Gisele Bundchen. I don’t work on a balanced meal plan for the week, and I don’t make achingly beautiful organic moss and bark collages with my kiddo. Rather, I’m the mom who makes it to 5pm (with the morning’s oatmeal still in my hair) and realizes that the piece of fish I set aside for my 18-month-old son’s dinner has mysteriously disappeared from the fridge, so I have to cobble something nutritious together in half an hour while said kiddo takes apart the Tupperware cupboard for the fourth time since he woke from his nap.
We all want to ensure we are serving up healthy and nutritious food to our kids, especially when it comes to snacks and lunchbox meals. But life is BUSY and ready-made healthy options are not always that readily available, or we simply run out of ideas, and this may make the daily routine of packing lunch seem like a very daunting and sometimes unobtainable task!
