I've been scouring the web for inspiration and guess what? I AM SUPER INSPIRED!
I've learned that half the battle is having the right equipment, so today I will be going shopping for thermoses, containers & ice packets. I am so tired of buying little baggies, not to mention the waste, so small containers it is. They will eventually pay for themselves with the money I save in not buying those zippy little baggies!
On to my inspiration:
This first pin share is a great way to get started. I am going to print it off and keep it on my refrigerator for inspiration & a quick reference when I am making my grocery list. It is a list of lunch box ideas sorted according to each type of food--fruit, vegetable, dessert, fillers, etc.
Remodelaholic. She lists 25 best school lunches, some are quite creative. I like the simplicity of the lunch pictured above. A silicone muffin liner is another way to separate food, and is reusable.
This is a super fun idea if your kids are banana lovers. Write on them with toothpicks and as the day goes on, the message appears.
This photo is from the Disney family site. They have a TON of great ideas for school lunches, all organized and divided up according to what your child's tastes are. I love this one with hummus, flat bread and tabbouleh. Again, the cupcake liners serve as dividers.
School lunch vanilla parfait. I plan to put my mason jars to good use with this idea! Yum.
