It’s back to school season! I have been gearing up on my blog for Back to School.
Why? I’m excited! My son is starting Pre-K this year and although I am plagued with all those worries that haunt all parents, I’m also pretty excited about his new adventure! I know he will enjoy this school year but part of going to school comes packing a good, healthy lunch!
I typically always pack my son’s lunches, I just prefer my own food. I know what goes in it. I also know how picky my son is is when it comes to food so I usually pack it with a good variety of foods because there is just no telling from day to day what mood he will be in as far as food goes!
One thing I know he loves are shaped eggs. What are shaped eggs? Basically all you do is crack and egg into a muffin tin and let it bake for a few minutes…then it comes out in the shape of the muffin tin.
I thought for his first week back I would do the heart shaped eggs with our heart muffin tin. I also like to use Great Day Farms Organic Eggs!
This gives my son a good boost of protein in his lunch and it’s healthy for him. Plus, it is a very clean way to eat an egg.
Another great way to add egg to a lunch quickly is with the Great Day Farms Hard Boiled Eggs! I use these all the time in lunches and on that wonderful Italian Salad!
Along with his egg, I also pack his lunch with sweet potato fries, pizza cups, macaroni and cheese, a little bit of popcorn, and a fruit. Generally, I will do small amounts of each, but there is something about being at school all day that makes him hungry! We pack ours in an Easy Lunchbox!
