Lunch Box Quick Tips

With back to school comes packing lunches! Here are some quick tips for quick, easy, and tasty (healthy too!) lunches.

Tip 1: Simple Sides/Snacks

Stock up on simple sides and snacks that require minimal preparation like: grapes, baby carrots, whole grain pretzels, cheese sticks, trail mix, or popcorn.

Check out snack size reusable lunch bags from lunchskins, which are a perfect size for packing sides and snacks!

Tip 2: Sandwich Fun

If you have little ones that get tired of 'regular' sandwiches, try sandwich cutters (pictured right). Somehow this seems to turn the basic sandwich into something more fun!

Tip 3: Use leftovers

Making wraps out of leftovers is a great sandwich option. Pictured right are baked chicken fingers, simply slice them up and wrap them in a wheat tortilla. Finish the wrap with some sliced veggies, cheese, and a drizzle of dressing.
