First-grade lunch: Honey, there’s no food in your food.
I always find myself adopting all the kids at the table and trying to get them to eat something nutritious. Today, I watched the little girl sitting across from me eat (in this order):
And a full-size Kit-Kat bar.
Then she told me that she was saving her chocolate chip cookies, fruit snacks (organic!) and Laffy Taffy for later.
I think she could tell that I was about to cry because she finally agreed to eat a slice of ham from her Lunchable.
Which prompted my son and his friend to talk about how great Lunchables are.
“I love Lunchables,” the friend said. “I mean I LOVE them. But my mom says we can never buy them. She says NEVER. She says … I mean, there are … Those contain things that you can die from.”
