How often have mothers the world over sighed loudly at the sight of uneaten lunch boxes that kids bring back from school? I know I have, in the early days. Until I hit upon the idea of making ‘faux gourmet’ foods for kids’ lunch boxes. It has been good since, with compliments given generously by the kids and friends of said kids. It is actually not a challenge; it only needs ample preparation. For instance I will know on any given Sunday night, what food will go into the lunch box for all days of the coming week. This is just to say I have most if not all the ingredients I may need for the big box project for the week. The trick: make it look good, as per the kids’ taste and a little bit exotic.
