When it comes to figuring out what to send with her it’s portion more then content that baffles me. Some days she seems to eat an unending amount at home, how can I send her with so little? What is enough? What is too much? At one point last year I remember asking my daughter, “What do I need to do to get you to finish your food at school?!” Her answer, “Send less!” She wasn’t being snarky either, just a calm logical answer. So I sent a just little bit less, and found much less being sent home. I cut the portions down by maybe a tenth, and suddenly she was eating most, if not all, of her lunch. Yet I had a hard time finding the right size containers for smaller portions, most were far too large. And I would slip and send more then she needed, just because the container looked so empty. This year I am finding that the Rubbermaid LunchBlox containers are just the right size. She has been coming home with empty containers, or near empty containers, and says that her belly was “full just right”.
