Usually, my mother-in-law watches my kids, and she feeds them lunch. Today, she is taking the girl, but she couldn't take the boy (it's a car seat thing, she has a temporary car, blah blah blah). Long story short, the boy is going to a dear friend's house for the day, and I packed him a lunch.
He's going to be there all day, so I didn't want him to run out of food.
He's also bringing some cheerios and a yogurt for breakfast. I would have liked more fresh fruit, but this was an unexpected lunch packing, and I was left unprepared. I would have also liked to pack some carrots for a veggie, but again, none in the house. I need to go shopping for produce before school starts next week. He's got zucchini in the muffin - that counts, right?
This took less than 5 minutes to pack. It's all grab and go. It doesn't have to take a lot of time to pack a nice lunch.
