Why Your Kids Should Pack Their Own Lunches

As many of you know, my kids have been making their own lunches since the 1st grade.  I learned my lesson with my oldest son that they should be packing their own food as soon as he traded the ENTIRE lunch I made for him for a single piece of candy! (I believe it was a single candy corn!) ha ha..  At that moment I decided to let them decide what they were going to put in their own lunches, with some guidelines so that they could learn what a balanced lunch looks like. When kids have more control over what they eat, they are much more likely to eat it!

A balanced lunch should have a grain, protein, vegetable, and a fruit. I created a chart that will help guide your kids to pack a balanced lunch all on their own!
