Don't be fooled! "They" know how to market to our kids!
They make our kids hungry!
They entice our kids to want this stuff!
And really, can we blame them? . . .the kids, that is!
Have you ever tasted one of those? The Lunchable . . .not the kid!
They're really not good.
But my cherubs wanted Lunchables, just like all the other kids.
So, here's what I did.
That's right . . . waited.
I bought 2. I have 2 cherubs.
I let the cherubs have the content -- but I kept the containers.
I washed the containers.
Then, whenever my cherubs wanted a Lunchable, I filled the old Lunchable containers with good stuff!
That did mean that I had to
- Purchase round crackers. But that's not a problem.
- Cut the cheese into shapes. But that's not a problem.
- Cut the chicken into squares. But that's not a problem.
In the little dessert hole, I'd drop in some applesauce, a mini muffin, some cut-up fruit, or a sweet candy treat.
I'd wrap it tightly with Glad Press 'N Seal and send them with their lunch.
They were thrilled to have a homemade lunchable.
No, it didn't cost $1.00 --but that's ok!
