L has been asking to make her own lunch lately. She asked if I could give her a shelf in the fridge to be able to access her own things. So here it is. Luckily she has basically the same things every day for lunch so it was easy.
The staples are usually baby carrots, cucumber, baby tomatoes and pita bread. We also switch it up with pea pods, cheese, eggs, muffins and hummus sometimes.
L gets out all of her lunch food from the fridge and puts it on the counter. She then gets her stool and a plate from her cupboard and gets to work.
Don't forget the clean up and putting the food back into the fridge. L clears her plate into the green bin and puts it in the dishwasher(hopefully!).
I've also set up a bit of a snack shelf in the pantry where L can get her porridge oats, cranberries and container of Heritage O's, coconut and cranberries which she can scoop into the smaller dish. She also has yogurt and cheese in the side shelf of the fridge and a fruit bowl on the kitchen table.
L's is beside herself with pleasure at being able to make her own lunch. What an independent girl!
