As background: MrWhatsit was laid off for pretty much the entirety of my pregnancy, and in his capacity as house-husband, he made me hot breakfast every morning and also packed my lunch. Well, now I’m at home with young Whatsit Jr., and MrWhatsit finally has a full-time job, so I figure it’s my turn to pack the lunches.
Here’s my problem: MrWhatsit does not like fruit. Any fruit. I am aware of how bizarre this is, but that’s just the way he is. Fruit is out. This includes raisins, and most fruit-flavored items. He makes occasional exceptions for orange juice and banana bread, but that’s it. So I can’t pack fruit into his lunch. He also doesn’t like plain yogurt, so that’s out.
I’ve been pretty much packing him a sandwich and some chopped vegetables, but some variety would be nice. He says he doesn’t need anything beyond that, but I would like to throw some surprisingly original items into his lunch bag now and again. Anyone have any good ideas?
