Rainbow Choc Chip Cookies

It is always a headache to decide what to pack for the kids to school.  You never want them to bring back any untouched food as it will always go to the bin if it is spoiled.  It's such a waste of food and time to try to prepare something wholesome for them if it gets throw away.  Being a mother, you worry if your kids is eating well to have energy to last for the day.  It is important to feed them food that they will eat and have good nutrition for growth.  I would not like my kids throw their sandwiches to the bin and ask for takeaway food after school.  Their lunch boxes always have something in carbohydrate such as sandwiches, fresh fruit then there will be something as a treat such as nuts, crackers or cookies and they also have filtered water.  I try not to overpack for them so they can finish their lunch and go for a play.  I always have to pack a few extra of this choc chips cookies for them to share with their friends as everyone just loves it.  This recipe is not suitable for people with nuts allergy as it contains peanut butter.
