Back to school for me means making lunches for my kiddos every morning. I will be making 3 this year! My oldest son, Ethan, has Type 1 diabetes. So, since he was diagnosed over two years ago, I have been making him lunch to take because it is easier for him to measure how much insulin he needs. Also, my kids will not eat school lunch (not that I blame them). So, I have made a lot of lunches!!!
Most of the new lunch containers come with a handy dandy sandwich container. Love them! It is so great to not have to spend money on tons of plastic bags and it is better for the environment. A small plastic food container works great to. I always get so sick of making sandwiches everyday! Some different things that I have put in my kids school lunches are:
-Sandwiches on a stick
-Sandwiches cut into fun shapes
I am loving these sweet sandwiches from Family Fun.
I always try to make my kids a pretty healthy lunch, but I think they need some yummy things too. I usually make them choose a chip or a treat. That way, they get something they really enjoy, but not too much crap!
My favorite part of packing their lunch, is sneaking in a little love note. I write it on their napkin or on a little post it. My kids are always so happy to get a special little reminder that I love them lots!
What are some of your fun lunch ideas? I would love you to share them!
