The Lunch List

7 Sep



Kids everywhere are going back to school.

And sooner or later, those of us who pack lunches for our kids will all inevitably wind up right smack in the middle of two distinct crisis situations:

Crisis 1: Due to a lack of planning, we will all find ourselves standing in front of our refrigerators, drumming our fingers on the door as we try to come up with something – anything to put in our kids’ lunch boxes that day.

All too often this situation plays out early in the morning, before the coffee has had a chance to work its magic. I think we’re all guilty of tossing a few pieces of questionable items in brightly colored wrappers into our kids’ lunch boxes as a result.

Crisis 2: Due to hectic schedules, burn out, or general lack of interest, we will not be able to come up with any new ideas for lunch box fillers. This results in kids getting the same lunches over and over and ultimately, getting bored. 

Then it’s only a matter of time before your kid is trading that boring lunch for who even knows what at the lunch table.

In an attempt to remedy both of the situations listed above, I’ve put together a handy dandy list of lunch box ideas.

Because drama has no place in lunch packing.

Save it, print it, hang it on your refrigerator, or hand it to your kids before you go to the grocery store and let them circle what they would like in their lunches.

Crises averted.

Long distance high-five.
