Lunchboxes your children will want to open

Lunches put into small containers or divided containers will be perfect for that first week of school.  It is easy to prepare parts ahead of time and the small and varied portions are simply fun to eat. Your child gets great variety, small portions perfect for kids and a choice of what to eat first!  For lunches for older kids or adults, simply make larger portions.


A great tip for cold drinks is to put the liquid in a thermos to remain cold and keep condensation from ruining the rest of the lunch.


12 lunchbox idea!


  • Cut up vegetables in one with humus or salsa in another.
