As my children are currently in day care during the day they get a cooked meal at lunch which is often pasta, mac and cheese, sausages and mash potato, rice, chicken and veg etc. On firday they have "Junk" food which is hot dogs.

Next year my oldest will be starting "big" school and i will need to pack him lunch. Then i will be consulting your blog even more then ever!!! The norm here in South Africa is a sandwich, fruit, juice and something sweet - biscuits (cookies). We don't have the facility for cooked hot meals although there is a "tuck shop" at all schools where you can buy a roll with cheese, a savoury pie, crisps etc, all not very healthy. Most moms opt to pack a lunch box and give tuck money once a week as a treat...


We homeschool, so my kids usually eat leftovers, or a pasta meal for lunch. Once a week or so, it's sandwiches (peanut butter and honey, which we call 'super sticky'.)
We tried your Honey dijon turkey meatballs a couple of weeks ago. A BIG hit at our house!


I meant to suggest the book "What the World Eats". We checked it out from the library recently, and all of us were fascinated!

I'm going to look for it, for sure. Thank you for the recommendation!

I'm so glad to hear that you liked them and thanks for letting me know. My
boys really enjoy them as well.
