Sometimes its All in the Packaging

It is probably pretty apparent by now, but at least once a week Aidan's lunch consists of some version of a peanut butter sandwich. On one hand, although it pains me to admit it, this is his favorite lunch entree. On the the other hand, however, he believes that no two lunches should ever look the same. It isn't exactly an expectation, more of just the way it is, like why water comes out of the faucet, why the sky is blue, and why trees have roots. I know this because it happened once, I packed the same exact lunch in the span of two weeks (there's only so many thing one can do with winter produce), and the look of query and astonishment on his face was priceless Anyway, these two things (Aidan's love for peanut butter and his expectation that all lunches are unique) are not entirely compatible.

Peanut Butter and homemade berry jam sandwich on whole wheat bread; 4 homemade vegan flower cookies with raisins on top; CA organic Fuji Apple; freshly squeezed organic orange juice (from our orange tree).

waste generated: none :)

I agree that sometimes packaging really matters. Specially for kids, they are likely to attract the way we packed their school lunches. This one really looks nice!
