Shh! Do you hear that? That was another back to school ad playing on the TV. While you’re thinking about classroom supply lists, back to school physicals and after school activities don’t forget to plan for lunches!
Packing your lunch shouldn’t be a daunting task. Not only is is Eco friendly (if everything you use is reusable), but it can also save you a lot of money in the long run. There are so many ways to pack a lunch, Pinterest is a goldmine of ideas. Here are some of my favorite ideas for quick and easy lunches:
Take a lunch from a boring same old sandwich to some pizazz with a new shape.
I would have never thought to use ramen noodles in a lunch box. Just drain the noodles, use the packet of seasoning and this should be cooled off by the time the kids have lunch.
Special note: you don’t have to use the cute bento boxes (even though you can purchase some here, here and here). Using plain old Zip Lock containers works just fine. You can spruce them up with cupcake liners and cutting your food into shapes if you want to make the lunch a little more fun.
There are so many ideas out there that we made a Pinterest board for them!
