Packing lunches is the bane of my existence. Trying to come up with new, innovative, healthful foods to put in my kids' lunch boxes only to find after school said foods still present, but now squished up and warm in their lunch boxes drives me nuts. I hate it. I was especially dreading it here as I have seen very few juice boxes, no peanut butter, and the only box of granola bars I can find cost close to 7 dollars.
The school here has an awesome cafeteria where they serve a buffet style lunch everyday (Guapo and I got to eat lunch there last week). They even get a popsicle after lunch if they have eaten well. How cool is that?
And the best part?
For Juan Carlos in Pre-K and Julio in first grade it is REQUIRED (read: NO GUILT!!! I couldn't even send a lunch if I wanted to!) that they eat the school lunch. Margarita is more than happy eating in the cafeteria.
No more packing lunches for me!!!
Things are really looking up. :)
