Here are 10 more lunch ideas! If you’re keeping count… these are 91-100(!!) of my entire list of makemealsmama school lunch photos and ideas.
Packing lunch (almost) every day for three school aged kids is an adventure! I photograph the lunches and share them with my ah-mazing Facebook food group and I’m now sharing last years school lunches with my blogger friends. During the 2013-2014 school year, the kids were in 5th grade, 3rd grade and Pre-K. It was the only year where I had three kids attending the same school. What a treat for drop-offs and pick-ups!
Sometimes we gave them leftovers, sometimes sandwiches, sometimes random foods thrown together, sometimes thoughtfully put together… always with an effort to keep them fun, yet healthful. Hope that these lunches give you ideas for your own kids lunches.
**How to keep food in thermoses hot: Pour boiling water into an empty thermos and cover. While you are preparing the lunch, this will “pre-heat” the thermos. When you’re read to fill the thermos, spill out the boiling water and fill it with the lunch.**
1. Spouse-packed school lunch: peanut butter and fluff on whole wheat. Champagne grapes and apple sauce squeezer.
2. Cheese and cracker assortment (asiago, manchego, unexpected cheddar, mozzarella stick, cambozola) with red grapes. Quince paste for the older kids. Thanks Igal
3. Spouse packed school lunch: whole wheat with goat cheese and sliced cucumbers. Hard boiled eggs and apple sauce. Thanks Igal!
6. Mini break-apart rolls with Russian thick cut Bologna, spinach and mayo. Shredded carrots, cantaloupe with hot sauce on the side, mandel bread, and a cheese stick (sandwich inspiration from my friend Vlada’s lunch a couple of weeks ago)
