So we tried the free school lunches, but Syd wasn’t keen. Cheese roll day he would eat the lot, but the cous cous pots were coming home untouched, as were the carrot wraps and egg mayo sandwiches.
So I have started making him a packed lunch, it is a shame to miss out on the freebie, but he was coming out of school starving. I will probably have another try when hot meals start after Christmas.
But for now, sandwiches. Cheese or marmite or cheese AND marmite. And he is eating it all up. In an effort to be a proper lovely mum I have been using cookie cutters to make his sandwiches into interesting shapes – hearts, rockets, dinosaurs – and he loves it.
This morning I asked him what shape he wanted today. “Poo shaped.”
I don’t have a poo cookie cutter. I tend to prefer my food not to resemble faeces. It’s ok tho, he had a plan:-
“Do triangle ones with lines in them”
In the end we established he wanted something resembling the emoji.
I duly sent him off with something vaguely similar (albeit fashioned out of white bread) and really wondering what the lunchtime supervisors were going to make of it.
Plus for future reference I googled ‘poo cookie cutter’ – and they exist. Seriously.
I might get one….
