Welcome! While you are here, be sure to:
My posts about lunches that I pack without sandwiches are always the most popular. I love a good sandwich, but nobody wants to eat that every day!
For your viewing pleasure, I've taken some of my personal favorite no-sandwich lunches and built a little video about them, with some pointers about what to include and some of my favorite tips for how to make them amazing.
All of these lunches are packed in my forever favorite EasyLunchboxes. Enjoy and happy lunch packing!
It's been a while since I've found something new that I'm so excited about that I wanted to shout it from the rooftops - but we have new snack boxes.
You may already know that EasyLunchboxes are my favorite, and most recommended, box for packing school lunches. We've loved these since we started packing lunches, and now there's a new one to choose from.
This is the new EasyLunchboxes snack box! I think it's absolutely perfect. It's the same genius design as the original, easy to use and pack, easy to clean, just in a smaller size.
This is perfect for snacks, but it's also an awesome size lunch box for your little eaters with smaller appetites.
One of the things I love about it is that it has four compartments. This makes it really easy to pack a well balanced lunch or snack. I follow a simple formula for packing: protein + vegetable + fruit + carb. Having a container with four sections makes this easy!
Week three school lunch update, and we're doing ok so far. You might start to notice some consistent items and some repeats. I definitely don't come up with something new every day. But sometimes just arranging it a little differently makes it seem new, and that keeps it interesting for the kids.Read More
Last week was technically week 2 of our school year, but the first week for my two in pre-k, so the first week for this year that I am now making 4 lunches every day. Organization in key in this process, if you don't want to be in a mad rush in the morning before you have to get them out the door for school.Read More
