I’ll admit it…I can work on “getting Isaac’s lunchkit in shape” in regards to making half of lunch fruits and/or veggies. Don’t get me wrong, his lunch is healthy and I tend to pack a fruit but I usually pair it was a starch snack or pack juice and give a snack like string cheese. Veggies are usually only packed when they’re cooked and with leftovers. However, as I was steaming carrots for dinner the other night, I discovered that Isaac likes raw carrots. Idea!
- Bowtie pasta with pesto – His class celebrated St. Patrick’s day today. Using pesto is a great way to incorporate green into a meal without adding green food coloring. Not to mention, he loves pesto (or “green scetti” as he calls it. haha). As for the bowtie? I like to get different shapes for pasta, just to make it fun for Isaac.
- Blueberries - A favorite! I got them on sale last week
- Raw carrot sticks – I can tell that he picked on them. I can neither confirm nor deny his tasting them. But I won’t give up! I’ll try again next week.
- 1% milk
As you can see, I made half of his lunch fruits and vegetables. It is definitely something that I plan on him getting used to during National Nutrition Month.
I hope everyone has a great weekend!!
What is your favorite food to add with pesto? Any weekend plans?
I plan on working in my garden and hopefully starting my vegetable gardens for the season.
