School is fully in session and we have been getting in a routine of activities, homework and lunch making. My kids school does not have a cafeteria so my kids need to take lunch every day. I like to switch things up throughout the year with their lunches so they don’t get bored of the same thing every day.
Today’s post is sponsored by Arla Dofino, but my love for their naturally delicious cheese is all my own!
I want their lunch to be wholesome and filling. So for lunch this week I thought it would be fun to give them a variety of finger foods to enjoy. However, I do like them to have some choice in what they are eating. So I provide a variety of choices for them to choose from. They can first choose between cheeses. One of my favorites is a delicious and creamy cheese like Arla Dofino Cheeses. This week I grabbed the Creamy Havarti and the Havarti in Dill for them to choose from.
Next provide some meat or nut choices. In our home they can choose between turkey, ham, pepperoni slices and a variety of nuts. They choose one or a little of each – whatever they are feeling like that day.
I have a variety of our favorite crackers and pretzels to choose from and then the kids have to choose a fruit or vegetable. I usually have apple slices, grapes, carrots, cucumbers or broccoli for them to choose from. I also add a fun little treat and some milk and I know the kids have something they will enjoy.
We love the Arla Dofino cheeses. My favorite is the Havarti with Dill. Some of my kids enjoying trying new flavors so I always grab a cheese I know they will love and them something new for them to try. You can find these cheeses in your local grocery store – I found mine in the deli section.
I like to pack their lunches in a box that have different sections to help keep everything nice and fresh.
