Kids love assembling their own meals, so let them

Posted: July 13, 2011 - 5:04pm

Kids love the chance to assemble their own lunches.

Not the night before, mind you. They’re quite happy to leave the packing of lunch to you. We’re talking about when they eat it. Present them with a variety of agreeable ingredients, and the little ones have a blast assembling their own sandwiches, pizzas, fajitas and other kid-friendly creations.

It’s part of the reason those boxed lunches available at the grocer are so popular. But there’s no reason you need to pay a premium for those, or be a slave to their questionable quality.

When you assemble your own, you can use healthier ingredients you and your kids love. You also can include a wider variety of ingredients than the typical box includes, and have it assembled in little time.
