A mum has shared a ‘controversial’ method to pre-pack her kids’ school lunches – and many have questioned if the food is indeed safe to eat.
Lauren, from Oklahoma, has four children and often chooses to meal prep meals, snacks, and school lunches days in advance.
One of her ‘mum hacks’ involves making 24 sandwiches at a time and popping them in the fridge.
She makes 24 sliders at a time by cutting the rolls in half, filling them with deli meats and cheese, and then refrigerating it.
‘My kids love these little sliders, so I make this a few times a week. They can just grab and go whenever they need!’ she said in a post.
Lauren previously revealed that she meal preps the dish every Sunday afternoon for the first few days of the week’s lunches.
She also said that the sandwiches lasted for three days – but it’s always essential to check if the meat has gone off before eating.
‘I make these so that the kids can grab them throughout the summer,’ she said about the convenient snack.
A few claimed it was a ‘brilliant’ idea.
‘Such amazing hack!’ one said. ‘You are the greatest. I work from home so I have to stop working and make my kids lunch a lot. This is so much easier!’
Another said: ‘A great idea. But as a non-American, all of those ingredients look so highly processed.’
Others were similarly worried about the ingredients and how well they would keep.
‘Cheap processed meat and cheese on horrible soggy white rolls. Poor kids!’ one criticised.
‘Those will go off really quickly in the fridge,’ a man said.
