Back To School Lunch Ideas
This coming Thursday is our kids first day back to school. I know the kids are looking forward to heading back if only to see their friends. I'm really not ready for them to head back. It seems like our summer was so short. And I'm really not ready to get back into making lunches before we even have breakfast lol. I think making lunches runs right up there with homework - neither one are much fun.

Last year near the end of the year I started making the kids Bento style lunches. This was the best idea ever! Not only because the kids loved them, but I was making them the healthiest lunches ever. No more buying little snack packs of this or that because I didn't know what to put in the lunches. And the kids were actually eating what was in their lunch!

This year I decided to put together a little list of ideas I could use for the kid's lunches and to share them with you. Hopefully this will help some of you as you are planning lunches for your little lovies.

Entrées Sides
Robin-Hood Wrap Veggies & Dip (Ranch, Hummus, ect)
