School Lunches

Share via email

So it happened.  My big boy Max has just headed off to kindergarten.  Insert uncontrollable sobbing here.  

 Once I got past the disbelief of how quickly five years has flown by, I was faced with my newest dilemma – trying to figure out what to pack for lunch!


I have two issues, the least of which is trying to fit all his food in his lunch box. 


The second is menu.  While Max is definitely a better eater than Cooper (or my husband for that matter) he isn’t what one would call a culinary adventurer…  Besides, I didn’t want to send him with a  peanut butter sandwich on his first day of school, so I ended up with this:


Mini-Bagel with butter


String Cheese

Pretzel Goldfish

Apple Juice Box


He also gets an afternoon snack (which cannot contain peanuts) so I sent him with water and Stacy Pita Chips which he loves. 

I hope he brings home the ice packs and thermos and doesn’t throw them out!  I realized I didn’t prep him before school.


Now, all I need to do is figure out the next 179 days….


All joking aside, here are two of my favorite sites for lunch ideas:

100 Days of Real Food –  is a cool site to follow on facebook because the blogger typically posts a picture of her kids’ lunch.  Fascinating.  This particular post talks all about her food containers, ideas, etc.  Very informative. 

Weelicious – Everything on this site looks so fantastic!  This link contains a bunch of ideas

Actually, both posts have given me ideas for myself!  Today I spent so much time with Max’s lunch, I had no time to make something for myself!  I totally need to start prepping the night before.


What are you guys packing for the kiddos?
