She liked this 'Momable' a lot, but didn't eat up the marinara and thought The Better Chip Sweet Onion and White Cheddar had a little much seasoning. Take away? You can make your own (healthier, cheaper, and more eco-friendly) Lunchables and kids still enjoy them!
Her favorite part of this lunch was the grapes, but the cranberry juice cocktail was too tart, the Ginger-O's weren't quite as good as the original (Oreo-style) Newman-O's (though she still enjoyed them), and the sandwich had too many flavors here. The take away from this lunch is that we need to remember that children's palates can still be pretty simple, so don't go for flavor combo overloads. And sometimes conventional can be better!
She enjoyed this and the major takeaway is that simplicity is NOT overrated!
It was a lot of fun for both of us - I liked packing the lunches (it definitely brought me back to my own elementary school days, at the exact same school where my sister is in the second grade now) and my little sister enjoyed reviewing the lunches that I packed for her.
They were a fun shake-up from what she's used to from our mom, and our mom said that she's picked up some new ideas for this school year's lunches!
