Sometimes it’s a lot easier to feed kids at home, rather than having to go through the rigmarole of packing a lunch box—especially if you have some leftover spaghetti in the fridge. I find that the kiddos are more receptive to straight leftovers like this, if you offer them a couple of days after you’ve had them for dinner. The very next day and they are like: “I don’t want that. We just had it for dinner last night.” So, this is dinner from two nights ago: whole grain spaghetti with homemade marinara sauce (easy) and Trader Joe’s frozen turkey meatballs (really easy). I also picked up a pack of ready to serve edamame at TJs yesterday, because ready to serve edamame is a great to have in the fridge for lunches and snacks. And it looks really cute in a little frog-shaped silicone bento container.
