Prepare yourself for Back to School with these 18 Lunchbox Meals Your Kids Will LOVE to Eat! Get the recipes on MarlaMeridith.com

 

I know the story well: I packed my kids a delicious lunchbox and it came back home untouched! We fear and dread this moment. Then we hear that they ate their friends PB&J instead of what we packed. It’s time to change things up when it comes to school lunch!

 

With Back to School around the corner it’s time to think about what to pack in those lunchboxes to have meal time success. It’s a bit daunting, but at the same time it’s best to be well prepared. Back to school can be overwhelming but it doesn’t have to be. The more helpful ideas you have at the ready the better you (and your kiddos) will feel during those first few weeks. If you and your kids get into great healthy, habits early, then then more likely you are to keep them throughout the year. These 18 Lunchbox Meals Your Kids Will Love to Eat! are some of my kids favorites and readers favorites too as gathered from my Pinterest boards.

 

If you have bigger kids, then these meals can be prepared by them. If you have little ones, they might love to be your kitchen side kick. Wee ones can help you pack their lunchbox and they will thrill more in eating lunch knowing that they helped you put it together.
