4 Items to Make Back to School Lunches EASY and Fun
Every single school day your child needs a lunch.
Maybe your kiddos look forward to hot lunch. Or, if you’re like me, you’re packing a “brown bag” Monday - Friday. Either way, our children need to be fed and it’s up to us to make sure there’s a plan in place for that middle of the day meal.
Whether you have to remember lunch money every single morning or find ways to pack lunches for 10 months, we salute you.
Below are 4 items to make school lunches fresh and interesting without overcomplicating your life/lunch packing routine.
Bonus? Kiddos who stay home will love them too!
| 1 | The Bentgo box (or any other multi-compartment container)
Take the thought out of packing and just fill the compartments.
The sizes and shapes will help you naturally get creative to make the foods fit.
Kids love eating out of these and helping with the packing process.
| 2 | Mini forks
Fact: mini everything is cuter, especially the mini ones linked above.
One simple utensil and they’ll eat fruit salad, cheese cubes, you name it.
| 3 | Shape cutters
A super simple way to feel extra creative.
Kids think eating a teddy bear’s head is way more fun than a rectangle slice of bread.
| 4 | Snack mixes
Make simple combos of salty and sweet: add raisins to their pretzels, chocolate chips to their cheerios, and so on. Combinations will surprise them and you don’t have to buy fancy trail mixes to make these happen—just use whatever snack items are already in your pantry and get particular satisfaction out of using those last few pretzels in the bottom of the bag instead of letting them get tossed.
