Summer is coming to an end, and many of us are celebrating. Yes, it will finally be cooler out and we can’t wait for fall and the holidays, but it’s also a new school year beginning. Parents are buying school supplies, backpacks and lunch boxes in droves. Shopping lists now include pencils, erasers, notebooks, and snacks. Back-to-school season also means back-to-lunch season. Parents everywhere are restarting the daily routine of packing healthy, flavorful lunches that will nourish their children.

Hi Jacqui! This is definitely just some inspiration for your lunch boxes, feel free to add additional protein that might work for your situation.

These meals look really healthy and probably great for someone who is vegetarian or dieting... but this is not a realistic lunch to fill up an active kid in elementary school, is it? Maybe the one with the weird cheese sandwich. I am really disappointed by this. I was hoping to find something my kids would eat! They'd love a lunch of watermelon I am sure, but they would be hungry in an hour.
