Default Re: So. . . school lunches

Falafal balls/nuggets might be fun to dip.
Wraps and Sandwiches


Have you ever seen the blog "veganlunchbox"? Also if you search it on pinterest there is a lot there. Some of the meals are really cutesy looking which could be great for competing with the other packaged lunches, some of the ways they make them cute are not very hard to do, either (like putting food in colorful silicone cupcake cups.)

Will the school be serving hot lunches? If so, they will distribute a menu for the week/month/semester whatever. One of the veg families I worked for tried to coordinate the kids lunches with things their peers would be eating and that worked well. The "laptop" lunch boxes were really popular a couple years ago, dunno if they still are.

One thing I have to caution. Things went really well feeding the veg kids veg food until one of them started wanting to take something stinky to school (tuna fish sand- the family was actually pescatarian, but whateves) the kids all made fun of her stinky food and instead of wanting to bring something less stinky she got embaressed and didnt want to eat lunch at school anymore. So I would say to be careful of anything with a strong aroma that kids might not be familair with, including Indian foods which I know both you and I really enjoy feeding our families as the smell could cause some lunchtime bullying.
