I was asked by a reader to make a post about what to pack in a school lunch.
As you know, our kids are school age and they only want to pack sometimes because 98% of the time, they eat school breakfasts and lunches with their friends.
When our kids ask for me to pack their lunch, I always make sure that they have these items:
- A sandwhich
- Fruits (berries usually or an orange or apple)
- Snack - crackers, goldfish, or chips
- Juice box
- A piece of candy
Our kids love to eat fruits and even salad sometimes, but the salad wouldn't last well until lunch time at school, so I stick to the list above and switch it up depending on what we buy at the store and what they'd like with their lunches.
They usually more times than not opt to eat school lunches vs packing a lunch, but when they do pack, it's good foods they love. Their school lunches though are pretty healthy ones; we have eaten there with them on their birthdays since that's the only time their school allows visitors to eat lunch with students.
