Here’s my take on sticking to your budget, while still eating healthily.
My kids don’t seem to think that it’s a perfect picnic unless there’s also a bag of crisps present.
With the days getting warmer, we’ve started having more days out – and this means picnic lunches. I love the way they’re a budget-friendly option for eating a tasty meal together, removing the need to stand in a queue or throw away sandwiches that you’ve forked out for. Once your kids have picked out the bits they liked, of course.
The start of the school term is the signal to step into a world of pencil cases, permission slips, assemblies and reading books.
I’m really loving the current flurry of bento boxes in the shops – they’re such a lovely idea for kids’ lunchboxes.
On packed lunch days, as I make my kids their sandwiches for school, I feel torn.
