It's hard for me to believe that it's that time of year again already. Can you believe that summer is over and it's time to head BACK TO SCHOOL?
Every year, parents across the country struggle to know what to do for their children's school lunches. Buy them at school? Pack them at home? If the latter is chosen, what do you pack it in, and what food do you pack? Overwhelmed yet?
Once again, Rock the Lunchbox has come to the rescue! Annie's, Applegate, Honest Kids, Organic Valley, Stonyfield and Rudi's Organic Bakery have teamed up to bring you just the inspiration you need going into this new school year! Check out www.rockthelunchbox.com for tons of ideas to keep you out of the lunch packing rut all year long!!
One great tip is to let your children be involved. Whether you are taking them shopping and letting them help pick out groceries, allowing them to assist you in putting the lunch together, or letting them choose that special lunch or bento box, giving them some input goes a long way in keeping them excited about lunch! I asked my kindergartner to draw me a picture of his perfect lunch. His drawing is below, followed by the lunch I made using his picture for inspiration.
