School Lunches

School is starting and so is making school lunches.  I saw this posting and thought it was a very clever idea and could make making lunches a little easier and maybe more fun??????  See what you think and how could you use it????

I’m totally going to do this when school starts! I love this idea! Kiddos pick the number of servings shown on the front from each bin. Holly will say I ruined it once I “whole grain it up”, but so much more fun than making sandwiches every day!

Bin 1 – popcorn or veggie straws (I’ll mix it up with what they call “junk food”)
Bin 2 – goldfish, rice and ritz crackers (again, I’ll mix them up but they don’t have to have the same thing everyday)
Bin 3 – fruit to go and fruit & veggie source bars
Bin 4 – fruit cups and apple sauces (will do fresh fruit most often, but good back up and with 3 kids liking all different fruit, this is my compromise)
Bin 5 – cheese strings, babybell cheese an yogurt tubes. Again will mix it up with yoplait drinks and diced regular cheeses I have)
Bin 6 – Meat & veggies. The hardest one as all three kids are not big meat eaters! Here I have turkey lunchmeat rolled up, turkey pepperettes (Costco) and carrots or cucs from our garden! I will do hard boiled eggs or leftover diced chicken breasts from supper too!
Bin 7 – will be granola bars, banana muffins or cookies!
This is all trial and error but the kids were so excited to pick what they wanted and told them I was open to suggestions!

Have A Great Year!
