I was so happy when I got a picture sent to my phone from Jamie of a healthy lunch she packed for Ryan with one of the chicken recipes I gave her and he said "man this is good chicken"!
I could not have been happier!
I know it can take more time and energy to feed your kids real healthy food instead of just grabbing a lunchable and some fruit snacks, but I promise you it will be worth it for the health of your kids and allowing them to be able to reach their full potential academically, physically, and behaviorally. Keep it up Jamie- Your such an amazing mom!
To make things easy in the morning my biggest recommendations are sending them to school with left over dinner and a piece of fruit. You can even pack it the night before when you are cleaning up dinner. I would get a thermos to keep things warm if need be. There are also these heat packs, like ice packs that you can put in a lunch box, but I have not tried them myself yet.
I saw this great magazine Chop Chop at Whole Foods, which has lots of good recipes for kids.
