Lunchbox Ideas

August 31, 2010

***I brought this out of the “old post cavern” because I thought you, like me, might need some fresh sandwich inspiration.  Luck to you!**

Oh, lunch.
Every morning it’s a scramble and it’s not my prettiest time.
And then my school is completely nut-free, and so I have be more creative than PB&J. And at 7:00 in the morning, creativity is NOT my forte.
I found an old article with sandwich ideas from Parent’s Magazine and I traded out a few of theirs for my own creations.  I hope you find something in here that is helpful!

The food designs are purely for your own amusement. This will not be happening on early morning sandwich making! It would be lost on my adorables anyway.

Let the eating begin!

    If only my kids would eat any of those options! My daughter won’t even eat BREAD so I have to be extra creative just to get something in her tummy. Not fun!

    My struggle with sandwiches is bread that gets soggy :( In fact, I usually do everything except the sandwich/starch the night before. These sure are great ideas, and I’m going to give them a try – in their lunches and in mine!

    Great ideas – all of which would also be really good on a tortilla (whole wheat or white)…then roll, pack in lunchbox and go!

    I found that especially when dear son was little that anything that could be dipped was considered fun and would be eaten. So consider sending a little container of….
    YOGURT w/fruit to dip in it;
    HUMMUS w/carrots, celery sticks, peppers, cucumbers, etc.;
    RANCH DRESSING, w/ cherry tomatoes, various veggies,
    PIZZA SAUCE with pepperonis, bread sticks, bow tie pasta,
    CREAM CHEESE w/bagel bits, veggies,
    CREAM CHEESE w/ BROWN SUGAR, apples

    do your kids like hard boiled eggs? Super easy to do the night before. Then in the morning, just peel and put in the box for a great source of protein.

    Heidi – my pleasure. Anything to help a fellow mom in the morning. (I am NOT a morning person myself)
