Back to school is just around the corner, here are 5 School Lunch Ideas to Make Your Kids Smile!
I feel like I blinked and summer is nearly over! I’m just not ready to give up our lazy summer days, sleeping in and evenings with later bedtimes. (Even though this summer has been the year of the mosquito!)
I’ve had the kids in day camp a couple of weeks this summer and we pack their lunches every morning. The soft side, insulated lunch bags we use are great for keeping foods cool, but if you are using the traditional sandwich and snack plastic bags, our sandwiches and crackers would often get squished in the car! (And what’s worse than a squished soggy sandwich?)
My secret weapon for packing lunches is the LunchBlox containers from Rubbermaid. The individual containers are great for keeping food separated, cool and not smashed! (You can find the the sandwich kit I am using here.)
I have the Sandwich Kit size for their lunches. The modular containers snap together in different configurations to fit perfectly into their lunch bags. (The LunchBlox containers do come in other shapes and sizes to fit almost any box or bag.) They are BPA free, leak proof, dishwasher safe and even come with their own ice pack!
The most helpful tip I can share with you today, is to prepare and pack lunches the night before! Such a time saver and one less thing to worry about during that morning rush! In case you need a few new lunch ideas for inspiration, I’m sharing our 5 favorite lunches with you today- in pictures…
