School Lunch Ideas

Everything in this lunch was hand selected by the 7 year old. You should have seen him, he was so excited picking everything out. He’s not at the stage of making them himself, but he’s more involved in ever. I reminded him of my lunch rules, he made his selections and we put it together.

I had no doubt the lunch box would come back empty and it did. :)

    Where do you get your little sectionals again? Do they have covers? How does that seal? I'm so inspired by your lunches, I 'd like to start doing similar for my 9 year old. Thanks! Reply
