This Simon lunch includes leftover pasta (whole wheat linguine, pesto cream sauce, mushrooms), kale chips, a hard-boiled egg, and apples & pom seeds.
We got home from school, and I thought to myself, “today is the day! I’ll remember to take a picture of what his lunch box looks like after school! I will make all the parents feel so much better about their kids returning home with full lunch boxes, too!” Then, because he’s 2, and
his whole life is an exercise in proving me wrong he’s a growing boy, I opened the lunch box to THIS:
I’m pretty confident this has never happened before. But, dear, weary parents – I learned today that it is possible. Don’t lose hope, and maybe try professing publicly that you’re planning to share evidence of their uneaten lunch. Who knows, it could work for you, too.
