    I love our yumbox! My kids are picky eaters. They love little bits of different things. It’s a great way of getting a variety of foods into them. Plus I’m sneaky and add new things and they try them without realising

    This is excellent. A really really informative post. I always give my 3.5 year old two slices of bread for her sandwich and end up throwing half out because she never finishes. Why don’t I just use one piece and make an open sandwich like you’ve done!

    This makes a very good point. How can a parent know the right portion size unless they are told? The only other option is trial and a lot of error.

    This is such a great idea. I think most parents of toddlers can be guilty of large portions from time to time, me included. I do find I’m throwing out food at times but need to remind myself to reduce portions for less waste.

    I think this is a really good idea because it’s easy to just look at a plate of food and make assumptions! My 5 year old visited a ‘Life Bus’ with his school recently and was told his tummy was the size of his hand. Portion size is just Jr important as what you eat, too!

    Love this! I think the issue is that a lot of the time, we just don’t know unless we have that valuable information available. Good job!

    My little girl has to take a packed lunch to her speech nursery two days a week and I probably pack to much as she is only three and she always comes home with unopened raisns and fruit packs. xx

    I have real trouble with Anya’s packed lunch as she goes off stuff so quickly 🙁 We also have the added problem that we can’t eat raw fruit due to oral allergy syndrome 🙁

    What a great topic and informative post. Love what is in your lunch box.

I'd love to know what you think?
