Back to school lunch ideas


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!
