In two weeks the new school year begins for many here in Ontario. That is if the teachers do not strike, but we won’t get into any politics here on the blog!
Back to school means new backpacks, new outfits, new shoes and for us moms, means coming up with different and delicious lunch ideas to help fuel our little ones as they grow and learn. My older two girls are so different when it comes to food and lunches. My oldest daughter is very plain and would probably enjoy taking chicken nuggets for the whole school year. Hailee however loves to try new things and loves almost all food.
Having a picky eater brings challenges to a mom when packing lunches and I suggest if you have a picky eater to pack what you already know they like so they eat. If that means chicken nuggets for the whole school year so be it, I would rather a full belly then a hungry child!
19 BACK-TO-SCHOOL LUNCH IDEAS
I have rounded up 19 great ideas for school lunches and snacks. Even though I have one picky eater I know there are quite a few on this list she would enjoy and I hope you find something your hungry learners will enjoy too!
Now what would a lunch be without some little cute notes and jokes to help them get through their day? School can be tough on our little ones so check out these cool printables below and pack some comfort and a smile in that lunch!
