Summer is over and now it is time to go back to school. If your child is a picky eater then, as a parent, I know you are dreading packing their daily lunches. I know how frustrating it can be to see that only some of the food has been eaten after you spent a lot of time getting everything ready the night before or the morning of school. Furthermore, it’s also stressful trying to pack healthy food options. Hopefully these tips below will help you. If you’re searching for affordable Raleigh catering for an upcoming event, call Catering by Design. You’ll love our food, service, and great prices.
School Lunch and Picky Eaters – How to Make It Work
Make Lunchtime a Team Effort
Getting your picky child to eat lunch starts with a team effort. This means that you have to get your child involved in the planning, shopping, and packing of their own lunch. Let them help you make a grocery list of all the things they want packed in their lunch. Then you’ll want them to tag along with you to the grocery store to purchase those items and to double check that’s what they want to eat. Finally, have your child help you pack their lunch for the next day.
Make Lunchtime Fun
Making lunchtime fun all starts with getting your child involved. Start by taking them shopping for a new lunchbox. A new lunchbox will get them excited about showing all their friends at school. Also, like we mentioned above, let them help you pick out certain foods at the grocery store that they want to eat. When packing their lunch, leave a cute note for them to read that they’ll find when they open their lunchbox. Check out this link for a few ideas.
Don’t Focus on the Negative Things
Finally, make it a point to only focus on the positives and not the negatives of lunch. There’s no reason to get frustrated with your child for being a picky eater. Honestly, most kids are. Save yourself time, money, and headaches by comprising and packing only the foods you’ll know they’ll eat.
