Let's get healthy!

At the beginning of the school year, I was so excited to start packing healthy lunches for my kids.
I looked up several websites and got lots of ideas for healthy, unique school lunches.
I would plan out their weekly meals and was so happy to have my kids eating healthier.
Well, that didn't last for long.
About 2 months into the school year I started to slack off and the kids started to eat school lunches more and more often.

Enough! I've seen what my children eat at school and let me tell you, it's not good.
Nachos? A brownie for dessert? Pizza? Yuck.
All of the food is highly processed and microwaved. It doesn't even taste very good, I've tried it before and was not impressed at all.
So, I've decided to try to get back into the swing of things and start packing them healthy lunches again.
I hope I can keep up with this because it is so much better for my children.

Ham and cheese roll ups
Pineapple chunks
Veggie chips and applesauce.

My daughter loved the ham and cheese roll ups, both of them ate all of their fruit.
However, my daughter did not like the veggie chips, but my son ate almost all of his lunch. Only a few veggie chips were left over.
Oh yeah, and they both got a small chocolate chip cookie.
We'll see how tomorrow goes.

Peanut butter & banana sub (made using hot dog buns)
Pineapple chunks
Veggie chips for my son with a strawberry yogurt.
Daughter got applesauce, a wedge of laughing cow cheese and some trail mix.

I'll try to post photos of their lunches, when ever I post them.

Let's keep our fingers crossed that I don't run out of steam this time around.
Only a little over 10 weeks left of school.
We can do it!
Here's to healthy lunches!
