I’m Jodi, a mom of two and registered dietitian. I have two beautiful kiddos – my son is 10 and my daughter is 8 – and like any other mom, I wanted to let my kids know I was thinking of them while they were at school. I started writing notes to them and slipping them into their lunch boxes (and the dietitian in me doesn’t want to admit this, but maybe that note was attached to a Hershey’s Kiss).
On those notes, I told my kids that they are cherished.
I told them jokes about the food in their lunch boxes: Q. Why shouldn’t you tell secrets in a cornfield? A. Too many ears.
I told them fun facts about the food in their lunch boxes. Honey is the only food on earth that will NEVER go bad!
One day I ran out of Hershey’s Kisses. After a few days’ hiatus from writing notes for my kiddos, my kids approached me and said they missed…my notes. Not the chocolate. My notes.
I was touched. And hence, Lunch Bites was born. I hope your kids enjoy them as much as mine do!
In addition to putting a smile on your child’s face, you can also feel good knowing that a portion of Lunch Bites proceeds funds Feeding America, which helps feed lunch to a child in need here in the U.S. For every $1.00 donated, Feeding America provides 11 meals to children who need them most.
