We have all loved our summer, but fall is upon us and it’s time to get ready for school. As we anticipate the homework load, the science fair and the endless carpooling schedule, there is still nothing worse than the anticipation of the dreaded lunch making.

Of course, we want our children to have healthy nutritious lunches so their little brains can grow, but for some reason so many of us struggle with what to pack 5 days a week. Try and make it fun (at least the first few weeks) by using cookie cutters to shape the bread, adding surprise treats, a cute love note or even a joke.

We searched the web for some great and EASY ideas to share with you so hopefully you can skip the PB & J and pack that box or that bag with a bang.

Remember even a school lunch can be a STYLED EVENT!

Cheers to a great school year!
