Back to school means many things. 1) Freedom 2) Routine 3) Packing lunches. Every. Day.
For many of us this can be a very daunting task. But it doesn’t have to be! I’m here to help! My 3 1/2 year old daughter goes to preschool five days a week. That means doing my best to keep lunch fun, interesting, filling and healthy. I use and love the Planetbox. It’s quick and easy to pack, keeps food separate, and encourages healthy eating. Kids don’t need to dig through hard to open containers and tupperware. All the food is simply laid out and ready to eat!
When packing lunch, I try and think about color, texture, shapes, and a balance between carbs, protein, fruits and veggies.
