School lunch box ideas

Today I am sharing a 5 Days of School Lunch Box Ideas. I assume this topic is always current. I, myself sometimes am out of ideas and that’s when I start web browsing to find new menu items and new presentation ideas. In this article you will find one week of complete lunch menus. This is a real day by day week of our almost 5 years old daughter lunches.

Since Elizabeth started Junior Kindergarten I encountered several “Perfect Balanced Lunch” obstacles:
  1. Kids often have not enough time to finish their lunches at school. Meaning this needs to be considered when lunch is packed.
  2. They check each other’s lunch boxes and comment on each other’s food. That can turn your child’s favorite food into “please do not give it anymore” category item.
  3. They may start repeating eating habits after classmates they sympathize to. That’s why, my little one suddenly decided that she is not eating vegetables anymore. Oh my! As a result, I now hide veggies in her food and cook mainly cream soups.
  4. If they don’t know what is in their lunchbox in advance they may end up not eating it. Several times happened to me and lunch was brought back. So, if you are experimenting with same food by giving it a new shape, it is a good idea to let your child know in advance.
  5. Healthy Snacks are a huge chapter to be discovered. Sometimes, what is indeed healthy is not in your child area of interest. Other stuff maybe labeled as healthy, but you may have concern regarding that. And finally, from time to time healthy snack rotation is needed. That’s when a hunt for new healthy snack options starts.
  6. Food Allergies accompanied with a list of products to avoid may shorten your list of products allowed in you child’s lunchbox. But allergies are not something to ignore. Therefore, I started reading product ingredients by 3 times in a row just to make sure it all safe. Our child is allergies free, but I don’t want anyone to be hurt because of my mistake.
As a result of 6 listed above obstacles, let me share my One Week School Lunch Box Ideas:
