The first day of school will be here before we know it. And that means it’s almost time to pack school lunches again.
I have to confess that school lunches are a challenge for us. My boys aren’t into the traditional sandwich lunch, like I remember. So I struggle to come up with what to pack that is healthy and filling. Fortunately, there are tons of other ideas out there. If you are struggling too, here are some school lunch ideas you have to try.
School lunches have really changed since I was little and there are plenty of ideas that don’t involve sandwiches or even traditional lunch boxes. I hope you can find something to make your child happy…and your mornings a little easier. I can’t wait to give some of these a try!
