Finish off by drizzling it with their favorite dressing and wrapping it up tight, What a way to cause a stir and get the kids eating their veggies!

4. Cookie-Cutter Creativity

Who said cookie cutters are just for cookies? You can very easily jazz up fruits, sandwiches, and even veggies with fun shapes by simply wielding a cookie cutter on them, This is great for encouraging those fussy kids to eat their veggies and not leave their sandwiches all day to go soggy. You could even create works of art with your meals!

5. Lunchbox Notes

Tuck a little note or a joke into their lunchbox. It’s a mid-day reminder of your love (and your awesome sense of humor) that will have them counting down the seconds to lunch every day. Just make sure not to write anything that might embarrass them! “Why was the math book sad? It had too many problems!” Groans and giggles are guaranteed.

6. A Little Treat
