Fable, on the other hand, is not a creature of habit. She's down for the rotation. And very un-down for sandwiches, which has always made packing lunches for her frustrating.
My kids don't eat much meat. Save for the odd fish stick and chicken tacos once a week, they get their protein elsewhere. Eggs. Nuts. Legumes of all kinds. Quinoa.
Archer eats a lot of hummus. Fable eats a lot of almonds. Bo and Revi eat a lot of both because they are going through a phase where they will eat most things you put in front of them unless they decide that food is the worst and then they smash it all in their hair.
But back to lunches.
When you find something healthy that your kids love, you should probably hold on for dear life to said healthy thing and that is what I'm doing with spinach Bolani which first entered our lives in 2010 c/o our local Farmer's Market and has not yet left. (There's also lentil, potato and pumpkin Bolani, all of which are delicious but Fable will only eat the spinach one and duh, it's spinach so of course I'm all in.)
cilantro pesto and garlic mint cheese so that my breath smells nice and awesome.)
(I'm obsessed with these crackers, which is purely coincidental in that this is a post about the almonds by same company. I want to marry the nut thins and have flaxseed-hair babies.)
