I know, kids are hungry. Somehow more out of school than they are in.
One of my friends with three boys said she was going to have to stock up at Costco before the holidays started because her kids were only going to tear through her kitchen mouth first for two straight weeks.
Being a newbie rookie school mum I’m learning as I go how to best manage school holidays and food is the first thing I turn to – both as an activity and to ensure that small children’s bottomless stomachs get filled repeatedly day after day after day. One day I will pack lunches just as I do for school and they can go nuts with those but like many mums out there I’m heartily sick of looking at them. Yes, already!
These are my go-tos, both for lunchboxes, after school, and those long, seemingly endless school holiday days. At least I can make them in my pyjamas… these slower days with nowhere to go by 9am suit me right down to the ground.
