Packing up a lunchbox can be trickier than it sounds, especially if you have a picky eater on your hands. Little mouths are more likely to be excited about lunchtime if they get to be involved in the process. The grocery store or farmers’ market is a great place to start. Take a stroll through the produce aisle and get kids talking about all the different colors, shapes, sizes, and textures they see. Ask them to pick out one new food that they’ve never tried before and give it a go! Even if they don’t love it after one bite, engaging children’s curiosity and imagination will go a long way toward broadening their palettes.
