Carrot sticks are not my favorite side to pack because it seems to be a crutch - when you peruse our school's lunch menu, there's only one day in September that they are not foisting them on the kids!  I think the new school lunch initiatives are great, BUT to me that just feels like a cop-out.  But my hubby, God love him, said Karate Kid might feel left out so I should pack some.  So here you go, hunny!  This veg's for you!

Happy last day of August!  In today's lunch, I decided to give Karate Kid a bit of a break.  He's been asking for "regular" (cafeteria lunch) for the last few days, and we can have none of that!!  So no veggies today.  But rest assured he'll get a dose when he gets home!  :)

Anyway, today's lunch is date bread with peanut butter, granola (to top the yogurt), and almonds; Little Cheesers pretzels and fruit snacks; organic peach slices and red grapes; honeyed chia yogurt; iced tea.

Happy Labor Day everyone!
