Lunch Box: Spaghetti with Beef Sauce

Lunch Box: Spaghetti with Beef Sauce

Every lunch box that I make I put much thought into it and like I said milion times before I talk to my kids what would they like. 
Of course "pasghetti" as my son would say when he was little, with sauce are always welcome in their lunch boxes. 

Before I go any further I want to talk again about safety! Putting hot/warm meals into any container is not recommended. Please, make sure that your box if you are packing lunch for you or your family is appropriate for it. Check on the bottom or before purchasing your lunch container: 
Q: What Box is safe for me and my child?
A: Look for the boxes that have clear written label that they are BPA FREE just in case if they are plastic- 
BPA stands for bisphenol.  BPA is an industrial chemical that has been used to make certain plastics and resins since the 1960's.
Seeking out BPA-free products may not always be easy to do. Some manufacturers do label their products as BPA-free, but some do not. If a product isn't labeled, keep in mind that most aluminum cans or bottles have linings that contain BPA, while steel bottles or cans do not. Polycarbonate plastic is generally hard, clear, lightweight plastic. It often has the No. 7 recycling symbol on the bottom. (source Katherine Zeratsky, R.D., L.D.from Mayo-clinic)

Fresh fruits and Veggies
Water 

TIP:
  • If Beef sauce and/or Pasta is from night before preheat it, then let it cool down for at least 5 minutes or so before packing. I pack it in the thermo container, safe to handle hot/warm meals. 
  • Make your lunch box rich and balanced. Giving kids fresh fruits and veggies will not only make lunch box bright, happy or beautiful but full of nutrition. Give them choices, it's not gonna be a waist because they talk with other kids and not even realizing that they are eating power food! 

I wish you an amazing week!
Stay happy and healthy...
your friend,

  3. Looks very delicious as always! Very colourful. I don't know why but the blueberries and the sliced carrots reminds me of the US flag. :)

  4. I always love spaghetti with meat sauce, and I wish back then there was a small thermo box for food (we did have a thermo pot (for tea etc)). It was expensive and so bulky back then when I was in school. Now it's compact and so cute. My kids bring pasta often too. :)
