If you’re a parent, we’re well aware of how daunting of a task it can be to prepare school lunches for your child.
And that’s especially true for those women who are working and hardly get the time to do anything else. There is also the issue linked to preparing healthy meals that ensure your child gets the nutrition that they deserve.
Whatever the case may be, one thing is for sure. It’s easier said than done as this one mom reveals. And that’s why she’s guilty of doing the unthinkable.
Think along the lines of preparing school lunches in advance and we’re talking a whopping five weeks before. If that’s not what you call advanced prep then I’m not quite sure what is.
As of right now, she’s already got 27 sandwiches on standby and hopes to give them to her son each day, to avoid the last-minute hassle.
Her goal is to make her mornings as stress-free and convenient as possible. Hence, all she does is prepare, pop them in the freezer, and then when needed, allow them to defrost with ease. And before you know it, it’s ready to be taken by her child to school.
While she takes great pride in this time-saving hack of hers, other parents are not so convinced regarding the matter. They feel the time has come to shun such practices as children are in their growing phase and that’s why they definitely need more nutrients that should be attained from fresh fruits and vegetables.
Netizens started to express their dilemma and concern on the matter. According to them, it’s just wrong for so many reasons including how it leaves bread soggy while frozen fillings have the worst aftertaste as well.
“But I just wanted to clear the air here. My child does not eat soggy sandwiches. I make sure they’re perfectly defrosted in the fridge before and they’re good to go when I put it inside the lunchbox”- she boldly remarked after getting criticized for the act.
