Preparing kids’ packed lunch can be daunting. In as much as we wanted to give them nutritious foods, adding veggies or fruits, for instance…One time, I slipped in a banana over the lad’s lunch bag. Lunch box was empty. Great. But, the banana went home…with bruises all over the ripe fruit. The lad said, “Mom, no one in my class ever brought a banana.”
I answered back. “So, be the first one to bring in fresh fruits, it’s a healthier snack/dessert. Bring two more to give your friends.” I never won in that battle.
Thus, lad’s lunch tote only has rice/viand and a sandwich.
But, sometimes, he tells me to drop the sandwich. Must he grow weary of the taste?
Mom’s always in trouble finding what to offer next…
Then, I go back visiting my old favorite bakery in the city and brought home this ube loaf…
Not too sweet, yet very creamy and the taste of the “ube” (purple yam) overpowers the sweetness of the loaf itself.
It’s the kids “baon” to school…until the day came when they wanted a new variant.
