Back to school lunch ideas

August 13, 2015

It’s back to school time again!!


Time to make lunches. And after school snacks.

If you are like me, you may tend to get into a rut when it comes to making lunches day in and day out, 5 days a week, for 7 people, for 9 months of school. You may have a different number of people to pack for in your family, but it can still get-shall we say-BOOORIIIING.

I taught a class in church about some healthy lunch and snack options, and thought, “Why not post the hand outs I made here so that even more people can use these ideas?”. So here you go! I scoured Pinterest and got TONS of ideas. I got the idea for the format from one of the pins I found from Love From The Oven and added a bunch of other ideas to it.

Sorry the writing is so tiny-I was really trying to get all the ideas onto one page. What I did is print it out and tape it to the inside of my kitchen cabinets. If I put it on the fridge, it would just get lost with all the other papers that sometimes collect there. And I don’t like papers on the front of my fridge anyway. Inside my cabinet I know it’s protected and it won’t add visual clutter to the kitchen. Win-win!
