The perfect lunch bag!

It's finally here! I think this is the perfect bag for our school lunches.

It holds an EasyLunchbox or Yumbox perfectly in the bottom, with lots of room for a drink and other snacks on top, but it also fits really well in a backpack.

Are you tired of sandwiches?? Me too!

So let's just say no to the boring old sandwich, and mix things up a bit!

If you're anything like me - or your kids are anything like my kids - sandwiches get boring really fast! We're ok with sandwiches once or twice a week, but any more than that and the kids don't want to eat them, and I get bored of making the.

One of the things I really try to achieve with my lunch packing is variety. I like to make sure lunch is never the same boring old thing over again.

Here is a whole page for you with lunch after lunch after lunch with no sandwiches! These are my favorite kinds of lunches to make.

And while you may see some similarities, if you look closely you'll see that the lunches are never exactly the same twice - I like to keep mixing it up!

Scroll down this page for all the ideas. And keep scrolling. And scrolling! There are so many!

Also - people always ask me bag I use to pack the lunches in. I've tried a lot of different bags, and I now have a brand new favorite! The picture to the right - it's the new Going Places Thermal from Thirty-One, and I LOVE it! Click on the picture to order. 

Click on each picture to get all the details of what's in the lunch and some of my tips and tricks. Bookmark this page and keep coming back - I'm still packing at least 20 lunches every week (4 every day, 5 days a week, and sometimes on weekends too!), so I'm constantly working on ideas and adding more. . 

This page is just the most recent lunches that don't have sandwiches.  If you want to see my full page with every lunch I've packed - click here. 

Click on each picture to get all the details about the lunch!

Each of the pictures below is just a thumbnail of the lunch. If you click on one that looks interesting you'll be taken to the full blog post about that lunch, where I tell you lots more about what was in the lunch, how I packed it, some of my lunch tips, and some of the products I used. 

Keep scrolling! There are more lunches past this break. But while you're here - make sure you are on the mailing list so you never miss an update.

The lunches without sandwiches still continue to be my most favorite. I think they're the most fun to make, and they really keep lunch interesting. 

Keep scrolling down for more lunches!

I think one of the most important tricks to getting kids to eat their lunch is to keep offering foods they like in fun and new ways. They want familiar, but they also don't want boring!

Keep scrolling, there are more after this break!

 
 

Don't stop yet... there are still more....
