The Lunch Box Chronicles Orange Slices is exactly what we need to fuel our quite low, enthusiasm for making our kids Lunch boxes interesting – Hey? There is a small chance I didn’t even cut or peel the carrots the other day – just fend for yourself kids, a bit of dirt is good for you.

But it is that time of year where it’s cold, its dark and super difficult to get up in the morning and making lunch boxes is the last thing we feel like doing. Its ok, you’re allowed and you are most certainly not alone! And im not sure about your kids but mine are slightly feral at the moment. There are tears, tantrums, moaning and SO MUCH WHINING! I think they are also going through the most with school kicking it up a notch, and let’s be fair being cooked for, loved, fed, clothed and played with is hard work right? Lunch Box Chronicles Orange Slices

But it’s a time and space and this too shall pass – Please!!!!

So why not instead of exploding [maybe me on Monday night] and go the extra mile for something sweet that is packed with the goodness they need for school, for extra murals and for sports practices.

These Lunch Box Chronicles Orange Slices are divine, you and the whole household will love them too so they will be well received by all which means a happy home. Which means a happy mom, true story!

If you’re feeling super generous then add some sugar free dark choc drops to the mixture and then you’ll be Mum of The year!

But trust me, whatever we pop in their lunch boxes its a lottery am I right???
