Kids are notorious for being picky when it comes to food. Even if you pack their favorite foods for lunch, the same thing day after day can get boring. You might aspire to recreate those amazing themed lunches you see on Instagram, but, as a mom on-the-go, spending that kind of time on a lunchbox masterpiece may not be an option. However, making your child's lunch special doesn't have to take a lot of time or energy. Adding simple but personalized touches can make your kids feel loved and ready to continue their day. Here are three ways you can add a special touch to lunchtime.
1. Change The Shape Or Color Of The Food
Break out those cookie cutters! The easiest way to jazz up a sandwich is to make it into a cute shape. Find cookie cutters that reflect your child's interests, like music notes or animals. This idea doesn't have to stop with the sandwich; fruit, veggies and desserts can have cool shapes too. Another way to bring a new twist your kids' food is to change its color. Food coloring can add a fun touch to leftovers like mashed potatoes, cauliflower mash or pasta.
2. Incorporate Your Child's Favorite Movie
As most parents know, when your kid has a favorite character, movie or TV show, they want to have everything related to that character. From clothing and school supplies to bedding and birthday parties, that character is everywhere. So it only makes sense to include it in your child's lunch! We know that when your kids see DreamWorks' Trolls, they will instantly be obsessed. This November 4th, your kids will discover the story of the overly optimistic Trolls, who have a constant song on their lips, and the comically pessimistic Bergens, who are only happy when they have trolls in their stomach. Feed your kids a cute Trolls-themed lunch to satisfy their latest movie obsession. Whether it's a cupcake that's reminiscent of the Trolls character Poppy, or mini Trolls inspired dishes like hamburger patties topped with dyed mashed potatoes, your kid will love the surprise!
3. Add Something Delicious...And Nutritious
It's easy to think about ways to make food more fun, but what about the drink? Step up from boring white milk and send some love in your child's lunchbox with TruMoo® Chocolate or Strawberry Milk! You know you're sending something that's good for your child, but all they know is that it tastes great.
TruMoo is also great with an after-school snack or all by itself. This fall, you can even find Trolls characters popping up on jugs of TruMoo® Chocolate Milk and TruMoo® Orange Scream, which makes it even more fun for your child! Don't forget your ice pack when packing milk in your child's lunch. We have a handy quick trick for making a Homemade Ice Pack.
