Kids Lunch Ideas

Here are some lunch box Ideas for school kids. I intend to keep it healthy, for the most part, and colorful. Kids lunches should have a good balance of fruits, veggies, calcium and carbs. I hope it helps other busy moms too.

The best way to have kids enjoying their lunch is to take them along to shop your groceries. Let them help you pick out the weeks fruits and veggies, their favorite milk, yogurt of cheese. If you want to save time preparing their lunches every morning, prep the veggies over the weekend and store them in ziplocs/boxes. Please feel free to send in your constructive comments and suggestions. Enjoy!
