Samantha’s School Lunch Woes!

The rains have started to come almost on a daily basis and the arrival of the first typhoon a week ago signaled the official start of the rainy season in the country. Most often than not, the start of the school year also coincides with the start of the rainy season and this year is no different.

By this time most of us parents who have school-aged children are probably back to school already!

My very own daughter, Samantha, was so excited for the first day of school this year that I didn’t even have to wake her up. She was up and about even before the alarm clock signaled for her to rise and shine!

She was welcomed with a new set of teachers and both old and new classmates. I felt her sincere excitement for school to start again. Most of this I guess is from the fact that she can be with her friends and classmates again on a daily basis.

This year though I am faced with a major dilemma – the school cafeteria is still trying to bid out its services to possible concessionaires so I am stuck with having to prepare for my daughter’s lunch and snack! In the previous years, we opted to have food brought to her classroom for lunch. A hot meal for lunch is always available and so far we have favored this set up for the past couple of years. Now, Sam has to bring food for snack and lunch!

For the month of June, we would like to hear from you, our special mommies about what food for snack or lunch would be best for school-aged children to bring to school?

All of those who will send us suggestions and tips for Sam’s lunch and snack this school year will get the chance to win this cool Crayola Model Magic – Presto Dots to the Max – for your child! We would love to hear what your precious ones bring and eat for lunch and hopefully Sam would love it too!
