Back to School Lunch Ideas

I hate to use the words “Back to School” right now because it just reminds me that summer is ending in a few short weeks. But, alas, we are nearing that time of year and it’s time to get ready!

One of my least favorite things about the school year is packing lunches. For me the biggest challenges are providing variety as well as a balance of healthy food with what my kids will actually eat. It’s oh-so-fun! 😉

Attune Foods recently asked me to contribute to a Back to School Lunch Ideas E-Book, using either their Uncle Sam cereal, Erewhon cereal or grahams. Chocolate-covered raisins ended up being my inspiration and I came up with a recipe that Cate could not stop eating. This new wholesome treat will definitely be making an appearance in her lunchbox this coming school year!

    Thank You for the lunch inspiration! Lunch time seems to get harder the older my boys get… My oldest starts middle school next week – it’s not easy trying to combine “nutritious” with “cool” in a lunchbox. Oh, and the lunchbox also has to look cool! 😛

      oh geesh, I”m going to have to add “cool” to the lunchbox challenge, too? KIDS! 🙂

  2. Lunches have to be cool?! Oh, I dread that day. We love the Erewhon grahams at our house. We switched when I noticed that the Honeymaid brand contains partially hydrogenated soybean oil. Boo!

  3. I’ve been surfing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It’s pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all web owners and bloggers made good
    content as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.
