Who else is already feeling burnt out on Lunchbox ideas?
It can be so easy to get overwhelmed with the chore of figuring out what to send your kids that is allergy free, healthy and kid approved. Nothing is more annoying than packing a lunchbox and then seeing it come home barely touched at the end of the day. This will inevitably lead to a kid that just wants a snack all afternoon right up to dinner because they're starving. Super fun scenario, am I right? I'm currently working on a downloadable PDF print out to share of ideas that will serve as an easy reference and go-to when you need inspiration, but in the meantime, here's a peek of what I've been sending my kids this past week:
Monday: watermelon, cucumber, carrot coins, ranch, baby tomatoes, broccoli and cauliflower, mini naan bread, turkey, I let the kids pick one small piece of candy as a treat
Tuesday: leftover boiled shrimp, ranch, a cutie orange, honey wheat pretzel rods, cucumber, baby tomatoes, black olives, black grapes
Wednesday: Pepperoni and Meunster cheese squares, ranch, yellow bell pepper slices, honey wheat pretzel rods, strawberries, dried cranberries and edemame
Thursday: Pepperoni and Cheese, edemame, a cutie orange, strawberries, dried cranberries, yellow bell peppers and mini yellow tomatoes
Friday: Pepperoni and Cheese (this is clearly a hit with my daughter right now), salad, Ranch, dried cranberries, strawberries, veggie straws
