This yummy idea is my own and is brought to you by Sara Lee. Enjoy!

Do you write notes to stick in your kid’s lunch box? Sam and I have been practicing reading and writing to broaden his literacy skills all summer and it’s something I want to try for Grade 1. I’m planning on designing some of my own but I’ve also been searching for options that I can easily download online when life gets crazy busy.  Sara Lee® Bread has some really adorable ones with their Lovable Lunch Notes campaign. There are 30 in total, that are customizable notes and you can print them for free.

I appreciate that Sara Lee® Bread is also making it easy to pack lunches: they have 18 varieties of sandwich bread! There is no high fructose corn syrup, artificial color or flavoring in Sara Lee® Bread so you can feel good about serving it to your family. It’s the nice, soft kind of bread—the kind I always liked when I was a kid. Sam is a VERY picky eater. Some weeks, the only sandwich he is willing to take to school is a butter sandwich, LOL. I think he’d eat it every day if I let him. I won’t! I have been dedicating myself to expanding his palate. If you also need a few new sandwich combo ideas, you can find ideas on Sara Lee® Bread recipes.

Besides trying out new sandwich combos, I am also going to change up how the sandwiches are presented to try and get him to try new foods and textures. He’s really into things that are on a stick, so I will be creating a few sandwiches on a stick to try, and of course I’ll get some veggies in the lunch time mix.

I’m excited to see how Sam reacts when he finds messages in his lunch. It certainly won’t be an everyday thing but I hope that when he does find them he will see it as something special. I want him to know that I am in his corner, especially on those days that might be tough or when he’s anxious about learning new subjects. I might also need to hide an extra “treat” under the main item, too—a favorite cookie or occasionally a small candy. Man cannot live on bread alone, you know!
