12 Easy Lunch Box Ideas :)

Great Lunch Box Ideas

Gotta see this book with all these creative sandwich ideas for kids lunch for home and back to schoolIt’s boring putting the same food in the lunch box everyday (sandwiches are great but you don’t want to put a sandwich in your kid’s lunch box 5 days a week); and creating those sophisticated out-of-the-‘cookblogs’ lunch ideas is overwhelming, not to mention time-consuming. Besides, there is the growing concerns about healthy diets. The schools always come up with the list of what not to bring.

Use colorful bento boxes to give your children healthy creative school lunches.

Here are 12 easy back to school lunch-box ideas (more to come) that don’t take long to prepare but will keep your kids happy during lunch and make them the envy of their classmates.

It is important to remember that the perfect, healthy lunch for your kids should include a protein, some fruit, a vegetable, and a small treat; all in perfect-size portions for kids depending on their age. It is important to stock your kitchen up with healthy and delicious lunchbox essentials. Containers with individual compartments usually appeal to most kids, because it would be awful if the food touched. Also remember that rolls are fast replacing sandwiches, kids love food on a stick, and never underestimate the power of a cookie cutter.
