Love this! I can’t wait to pack healthy lunches for Caleb!
Maria, you will have such a great time packing lunches for your little guy 🙂
I love it! So bright and cheery-great tips for making the best possible package!
hi, new to your blog. I love this! I take great pride in packing my son’s lunch. I’ve had nice comments from two moms that help out during lunch at his school. I always give him two fresh fruits, and try to keep it interesting. I try to use small plastic containers instead of disposable bags whenever possible, always include napkins, and use big cookie cutters on his sandwiches, according to the season. he may be the only 2nd grader who takes rotisserie chicken sammies and tuna salad though!
Hi Mirtha! Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving this comment.Sounds like your son is one lucky little guy and you are a super awesome thoughtful mom. Hope you have a love’y Mother’s Day 🙂
Lovely! Your children are lucky.
Only you could make a lunchbox look this gorgeous! This is a truly inspired post.

I would love to have you pack me a lunch. It looks so fresh and tasty!
Such a beautiful colorful lunch box!
I love this post! And, I love those containers. Do you use the lunch boxes, too, or are they too bulky for children? I am already looking for next year. 🙂
Natalie, I use them for myself and my kids. My husband uses them too! You guys should totally try them for next year 🙂
I love your healthy lunch tips, Marla. Now, if I could only get someone to come pack my lunches! 🙂

Lucy, that is the BEST thing I have heard all day!!
In the first photo, where did you get the little cherry bowls? I love those!
Love your tips on how to pack a lunchbox! How about adding a Lunchbox Love note for Kids by Sayplease? Positive notes on the front say things like “I Love spending time with you” and trivia on the back say things like “did you know butterflies taste with their feet”? After all nourishing their hearts is as important as nourishing their bodies.

Agreed! I have some printable LunchBox notes coming up shortly for my readers 🙂 Great tip! Thanks.
What kind of napkins are those? It is so colorful.
where do you get the cute little cups that the fruit is in?
