I have always been that mother who gives her child sandwiches for lunch. They are quick, simple and nutritious, depending on what you put in them.
To be very honest, I always loved and believed in the idea of sandwiches because I was always too busy/tired/lazy to make a full meal for my son to carry to school and I figured that he would just eat a proper meal at home for dinner.
Well, I now have an almost 6-year-old, opinionated son who is no longer satisfied with having sandwiches for lunch. I was given strict instructions to start packing “nice food” for school because he and one other boy are the only ones who get sandwiches.
Apparently, I am that mom.
So, against my better judgment, I agreed to give him “proper meals” for school this year. And I am sure you all know that when you promise a child something, they never, ever forget.
So, in the spirit of community, I am reaching out to you mothers who are brilliant in the kitchen to share some of your best and simplest back to school meal ideas.
Help mummies like me to stop being that mom.
