Yumbox Lunch Ideas For Toddlers: January 2019

Yumbox Lunch Ideas For Toddlers: January 2019

Disclaimer: I previously worked with EatWell-UK who provided a discount to purchase these boxes. 


This month Erin started a new nursery and unlike the old nursery where she had hot lunches, this one required packed lunches every day. Erin’s nursery asks that the packed lunches are healthy and although I know other parents don’t stick to this at all, I do try to as much as possible. I do struggle for ideas though and I know others do as well so I thought I would start a new series showing what lunches Erin has been eating for the previous month. She is only at nursery 3 days a week so there isn’t a lunch for every day of the week.

Erin is a picky eater so don’t expect anything too adventurous or exciting. Although Erin is picky, I always try to include something she either has never tried before or is unsure of. Apparently it takes 13 tries or something to get to know if you like a certain food or not and Erin is much more likely to try something new while she’s at school surrounded by other children. I have no idea why!
