Everything you need for school lunch packing

Everything you need for school lunch packing

I get lots of questions about the products I use to pack our lunches, so I thought it might be helpful if I gathered up all my favorite items in one post.

I think one of the most important aspects of easy lunch packing is to have products and containers that are consistent and reliable. While it is fun to have a nice variety of accessories, if you want to be quick and efficient in your lunch packing, choosing a reliable set of stuff that you can use day in and day out is going to be your best bet.

More than 2 Dozen Gluten Free & Grain Free School Lunch Ideas

More than 2 Dozen Gluten Free & Grain Free School Lunch Ideas

You may have also heard me talk about how much I believe in "everything in moderation".  We don't follow any specific kind of "diet", other than eating just real food.  (I don't consider that a diet though, I consider that to just be normal.)  Because we don't have any food allergies or specific food intolerances, there isn't anything that we can't eat.  We are omnivores, who eat all real foods, in moderation. But moderation to me means that we don't eat all the things all the time, and we shouldn't eat all the kinds of things at every meal. So even though I don't have to for a dietary reason, you will still find me fixing meals for my family that are gluten free, grain free, nut free, dairy free, meat free, etc.  I believe in doing this to provide variety for my kids, and I think it's good for them to learn that they can have a great meal even if it doesn't include bread, or dairy, or meat, etc.

No Sandwich Lunches!

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!
