Hooray for the upcoming last month of winter! Winter is my least favourite season of the year and I am very happy we are two thirds of the way into it already.
Some more lunch box ideas for the kids school lunches, this time using seasonal fruit and veg for August.
Please note, I am not a nutritionist/dietitian. These lunch box ideas are what I actually feed our kids and taken into account with the rest of their diet and their level of physical activity, I am pretty happy with the balance they have. But like most things with parenting, there is always room for improvement so what I feed the kids for lunch is a work in progress.
