School Lunch Ideas

I know I’ve been sharing a lot of egg based lunch idea but I couldn’t resist this one. He ate both yolks! I did cook them a little less this time. I can’t help but assume that helped.

Now, I’m not sure what was up with the orange segment but he had a few. I’m guessing he ran out of time.

    I think that is really good how you monitor what he brings home from his lunch and try to accomodate his taste buds! All the while ensuring that he is eating a healthy balance of items. That is funny about the orange - left all Reply

    I'm a mother, so I'm very excited about the yolks that got eaten! lol I told everyone on my facebook about cooking them less, thank you! And I linked your blog! Reply

    Wow - I am shocked that he favored the snap peas over the oranges!! It's terrible how rushed kids are to eat their food at school. Reply

    Love the lunch ideas. I think egg whites are a great source of protein. The fact that he eats eggs amazes me. When I was his age I couldn't get one down if my life depended on it. Reply
