Getting your kids to pack their own lunches for school is a little tricky, as well. Again, I think we came up with a really good idea in getting them started. We are not quite there yet. What we do, and what I usually do -- because I usually make the lunches -- I make one thing. If it's pasta or a sandwich or something, I'll make that and put it in their bag. Then my wife has created three buckets. One has the vegetables, one has the fruit, and one has a snack; it could be crackers, it could be goldfish, something that is maybe not that healthy, but they like. Then they get to pick one bag out of each bucket and stash into their own lunch bag. That gives them a sense of control over what they are eating. They have to take one out of each bucket. That's get them into the habit of packing their own lunch. My goal, of course, is to make the sandwich or whatever else as well, which will alleviate me of the lunch making process.
