School lunches! Swipe left to see a typical full lunch for my 4 year old son. 🍓🥒 Following the @medicalmedium protocols myself, I started to feed my kiddos mostly that way too. I’ll admit, the string cheese or yogurt tube I used to pack in Boone’s lunch every day was one of the last things to go. Here’s our current usual: celery or cucumber sticks, a few dates to make sure he has enough calories if he’s having an active day, a pumpkin seed butter and honey or wild berry jam sandwich on @breadsrsly Srsly gluten free vegan bread (kids aren’t totally plant based, meat is their choice, but I do try to avoid eggs, dairy, and gluten for them). Then usually a few of: sliced mango, apple, strawberries, grapes, blueberries, bell pepper, carrots, or other fresh produce, depending on what’s handy. I also may fill up some space with dried organic figs, apricots, mangoes or raisins, and a couple nuts, depending on the day. I also sometimes pack steamed sweet potatoes or steamed broccoli, if I have leftovers on hand. It takes a bit of time and prep, but like anything else, it’s gotten so much faster and easier after doing it 5 days a week for several months. 🥒🍇 I love not having to worry about packing extra protein - since breast milk teaches us about optimal nutrition for growing kiddos, and it’s only about 2% protein, which you can easily get from fruits and vegetables. Kids need lots of high quality sugars, like from fruit, dates, honey, or potatoes. They also need green veggies for natural cluster salts, silica and minerals to help grow strong brains, organs, muscles, and bones. 🍎🥦 Reality check: Yes that’s a reusable plastic container. Maybe not ideal? That’s a beautiful thing about being a mom - there’s no possible way to do everything perfectly. I try to get in a good routine, and then often I gotta call it good enough, and ask for forgiveness when I blow it. This post isn’t about being perfect, this is me sharing my journey as I try to do my best for my kids, get inspired by other people, and figure it out as I go. 👌🏼 What do you guys pack for your kids? What are your favorite lunch containers?
