Crackle, crunch, pop
If your mini me loves their chips (and let’s face it, who doesn’t love a sneaky packet of salty goodness), try changing up the game by replacing packets of crisps with homemade popcorn. Not only is it super easy to make, you can even place the kernels in your own compact, brown bags to make the whole experience feel just as special as popcorn at the movies. All you need is 2 tablespoons of popcorn kernels per serve, and a paper lunch bag. Place the kernels in the bag, fold over the top a number of times (until it feels secure and like there’s no way a single kernel can escape their popcorn destiny) and then fold in the corners to make extra sure. Pop the bag in the microwave on high for roughly two minutes or until the popping sounds like it’s slowing down to roughly a pop every few seconds. Before taking your popcorn out of the microwave, make sure you’ve got a tea towel or oven mitt at the ready. These babies will be hot! Once your bag of popcorn has cooled down, simply place it in your little one’s lunch box. Et voila! You’re done.
