Lunch Bingo

Lunch bingo, well sort of. My son starts Pre-K tomorrow and he'll be going to school 4 days a week. He used to go 2 times a week and he was cool with me packing the same thing since they weren't consecutive days. But times they are a changin', so I came up with lunch bingo. Everyday he'll get to pick one item from each column and cross it off for that day. This way, he's getting a variety of foods and hopefully he'll feel empowered that he'll have made his own lunch decision that day. These kind of decisions are important you could be a Harvard or Yale kind of decision one day! Kinda like when I used to do the corporate gig, I could decide whether I wanted to eat at the Globe or Tijuana Flats; sweet potato fries or chimichangas - it's those important decisions I made everyday that have made this world a better place. Anyone else getting hungry?

Btw, I made this handy chart in Microsoft Word (surprise surprise) - email me at if you'd like a copy of it.

I love this idea. Lunch packing is the biggest thorn in my side. Last year my daughter bought lunch everyday because I couldn't stand the lunch debate. I'm going to try this with her this year.
