apple & peanut butter quesadilla, colby jack cheese,
Snapea Crisps, strawberries & blackberries
As much as I love to make healthy lunches for my kids, I often find myself in a lunch rut. Eventually, my morning lunch-making routine became......
1. Make some kind of sandwich
2. Add a piece of fruit
3. Throw in something crunchy (or junky)
4. "Oh great, I'm all out of baggies"
After doing that for a while, my routine became:
1. Google "healthy lunch ideas"
During one of those many, MANY searches, I discovered something awesome....
These containers have changed my whole way of thinking when it comes to making my kids' lunches! Now, when I make lunches, it goes something like this:
1. What kinds of fresh fruit and veggies do I have on hand right now to pack in here? Ooooh, how 'bout a little of this & a little of that.......
2. How about some dip or yogurt?
3. Now add some protein
4. What about something fun like Snapea Crisps or sprinkles?
5. Let's look at the lunchbox ideas photo gallery and see what looks good......
The possibilities are endless! And now, the first thing my kids say when I pick them up from school is, "I LOVED MY LUNCH!" It makes my day. Every time.
To get your own Easy Lunch boxes, just head over to the website. You can also choose to get the lunch totes that go with them. The website also has TONS of yummy lunch ideas from readers. You will never run out of options! Here are a few of the ones I created when I first got my containers:
Pretzels, hummus, bell peppers, string cheese,
carrots, celery, peanut butter,
marshmallows with chocolate chips
Blue corn chips, Colby-Jack cheese, salsa,
refried beans, guacamole, dried fruit strip
Ham, cheese & spinach wrap, grapes,
vanilla yogurt with blackberries,
Ham & Cheese wrap, banana, strawberries,
Kix cereal, vanilla yogurt with sprinkles
Homemade pb & j uncrustables,
yogurt + peaches + granola = yogurt parfait
These containers are very sturdy & hold up really well in the dishwasher & microwave. Love, love, love em! Oh, and did I mention these containers are BPA FREE?
Stay tuned. I will be posting more lunchbox ideas in the coming weeks!
