Fun School Lunchbox Ideas and Tips

The kids headed back to school after what seemed like a very long hiatus for Christmas break. Believe it or not, they just went back to school on the 7th. It used to be the 2nd. I don’t know but whatever the reason, surprisingly they were as happy to head back as we were, lol.

We all love the NEW Little Bites Limited Edition Cinnamuffins Seasonal Favorites® and wish they would stay around forever. The kids like to help make their lunches (and eating them before we pack them) and like getting lunchbox notes when they open up their lunchbox at school.

School Lunch Tips

1. I like to freeze their drinks to put in their lunchboxes. It helps to keep their sandwiches cold until lunchtime.

2. Make fun shapes with their sandwiches. We made a heart, Mickey mouse, star, or whatever the seasonal holiday is.

3. Let them help in the making of their lunch.

4. Lunch doesn’t have to be just sandwiches. It can be wraps, finger foods, leftover soup in a thermos, or even a slice of pizza

5. Make a lunchbox station where they can grab-n-go all their favorites to put in their lunchbox.
