With Back to School only a couple weeks away for some of you it is hard to think of new things to pack in the old lunch box. There are the old standbys of PB&J, or ham sandwich. Kids like exciting! They really do like to show off their lunch! They want to be the one everyone wants to trade lunches with.
Make lunchtime full of surprises! Try packing a sheet of stickers for them to share with their friends, or a little note just to show them you are thinking of them. Any kind of little “Surprise” makes their day at school that much better! You would be shocked at how much a few minutes of your time means to them.
Todays recipe is for Chicken Salad, but not just any chicken salad! Sweet and Crunchy chicken salad. Don’t worry, the kids will love it ! Guaranteed! You can mix it up and serve it in a wrap, with crackers, on on a sandwich. Any way you serve it, it’s a hit!
