Back to School Lunch


Last year my son Nicholas asked me to buy him “Lunchables” for the days he ate lunch at pre-school.  When I looked at the nutritional values, I almost fell over and told him it was out of the question. 

This year, I researched their menus and decided to make our version of “Lunchalicious and Light” meals that he could have fun eating while keeping a healthy balance of  calories and fat grams. I found these Ziploc containers at Target (just in case you were looking).

Here is the first of a series of our “Lunchalicious and Light”.
