The Lunch Chronicles

I like to pack my son his own lunches to take to school. He went to summer school, so these are some of his lunches that he took. He is starting kindergarten in my Fall and I will be packing 2 snack boxes as well. Some days, we will get school lunch, because he gets free school lunch. Summer school wasn’t long enough (8:30 to 12) for them to provide lunch. I provide snack and lunch type items for his 10 am snack. In the Fall, he will go from 8:35 to 3:05. It is such a long day, but he has ASD and ADHD. He gets Speech, OT, and ABA therapy at school. I am looking forward to more progress that he’ll make in school this year.

The above box from left to right: chopped ham, Ritz crackers, graham crackers, M&Ms, Babybell cheese, and Oreos. He ate some of the ham, crackers, and M&Ms. He ate all of the graham crackers and Oreos. He left the cheese.

The above box from left to right: fresh cantaloupe, chopped celery, Veggie straws, M&Ms, Feta cheese, and chocolate Teddy Grahams. He ate all of the veggie straws, teddy grahams, and celery. He ate some cantaloupe and M&Ms. He didn’t eat the cheese.

The above box from left to right: Wow Butter sandwiches, deli turkey breast, pretzels filled with cheese, M&Ms, raisins, and teddy grahams. He didn’t eat the Wow Butter sandwiches and one of the pretzels. He ate the turkey, raisins, and teddy grahams. He ate some M&Ms and one pretzel.

I enjoy using cookie and sandwich cutters when I can to spice up his lunch.

The above box from left to right: alphabet shortbread cookies, Cheesezits(?), corndog, M&Ms, spinach, and grapes. He ate the cookies, cheeseits(?), and corndog. He ate some of the M&Ms, spinach, and grapes.

The above box from left to right: teddy grahams, Ritz crackers, Veggie straws, marshmallow, carrots, and chocolate chip cookies. He ate the teddy grahams, veggie straws, carrots, and the cookies. He ate some of the crackers. He didn’t eat the marshmallow.

The above box from left to right: alphabet shortbread cookies, Cheeseitz, corndog, M&Ms, ketchup, and barbecue chips. He ate the cookies, cheeseitz, chips, and ketchup. He didn’t eat the corn dog or the M&Ms.

My son doesn’t always consistently eat the same things. I add one new item to the box and the rest I fill with things that I know he eats. I always put at least 1 treat in there. The M&Ms are used by his teachers for positive reinforcements. Some days, we was more cooperative than others. I look forward to making more posts coming September as he starts on the 8th!

With Love,
