Sadly, I'm here to tell you that is (usually) not the case. I can't speak for the yard man, but what *we* talk about often has to do with whatever kid phase we're in - for me and my friends, that's sending our toddlers to school for the first time and the logistics of how to make that happen, lunch included.
Here's what I'm not here to tell you: what to pack in said child's lunch. I'm no nutritionist, unless you consider champagne a food group. Besides, this is the idiot who served non-organic, processed fruit strips at a recent playgroup; I might as well have laid a pack of unfiltered cigarettes on the table. Plus, isn't that why Pinterest exists - to shame you into crafting intricate train shaped sandwich topiaries for your wee one's lunch?
What I can speak to, however, is how to make your tot's lunch not sear your eyeballs with its cartoon character plastic awfulness.
Don't get me wrong - I'm fully aware that cartoon character plastic awfulness (is CCPA a disease yet?) will be here at Pretty HQ soon. Until the wee CEO figures that out, however, here's the best of the lunch bunch - with bonus green points for reusable stuff! Aren't I sooo eco?
(What, you knew I was accessories obsessed - you didn't think that would translate to my toddler's stuff too?!)
My mantra when it comes to kid's lunch stuff (and clothes, actually): "If I can't throw it in the washing machine, I shouldn't buy it."
details: lunch sack (Skip Hop) / sippy cup (Two Southern Chicks) (thanks for the tip, Z) / reusable sandwich bags (Itzy Ritzy - thanks to friend Tippy! - and Lunchskins) / mini tupperware (OXO)
When these go, I'm eyeing this bento box and these bags for replacements - assuming I get a say in the matter, which is looking unlikely given the current You're Not The Boss of Me!!! toddler administration.
What nifty lunch things have you found for your tot?
