Back to school is always a monumental event in our home, but this year it’s even bigger now that TWO of my guys are heading off to school at the end of the month. The littlest brother is following big brother’s footsteps and carefully planning out his back to school items like sneakers, backpacks, and of course his lunchbox. Two big boys in school is twice the packed lunches which means more pressure to get creative, especially for my little picky eater. Fortunately, I’m counting on Boar’s Head to bring excitement (and full bellies) to our home lunches this year!
My son has taken home lunch just about every day since he’s started school. As you can imagine, it can sometimes get boring with the same ol’ thing for 180-something days. This year, as my little guy heads to school, I have to think of very creative ways to send his lunch. My oldest was always a great eater and believe it or not, is super content with his Boar’s Head Maple Glazed Honey Coat Turkey Breast and mustard sandwich. Once in a while he’ll venture out and want to try something else, like the Boar’s Head Cajun Smoked Turkey Breast or the Boar’s Head Blackened Turkey Breast. Either way, you get my point, he’s a strictly turkey sandwich type of guy. He likes turkey so much that he rarely wants to put cheese with it. However, his little brother is another story.
My soon-to-be school attending little guy is my pickiest eater. He thrives on variety and rarely wants the same thing two days in a row. While I’m robotically making his brother’s turkey and mustard sandwiches, I’ll be trying out different options to make him excited about what’s going into his new Avenger’s Infinity War lunchbox.
