Homemade Lunchables

Happy Day-after-Thanksgiving! I have not created or posted any school lunches since the start of the pandemic. But, I miss it. Our school district went to all virtual in March and we will be virtual until the end of this running school year. For obvious reasons. And we miss it all. Family, friends, neighbors, school functions, Christmas concerts, our yearly traditions of lighting the community Christmas tree, get togethers just before the holidays. All of it. Even the dreaded yearly turkey disguise project. Moms, you know what I mean!

Despite it all, I have decided that it does no longer have to mean the end of school lunches. Even if the kids are all home. Because I could use some streamlining in feeding the kids. Some healthier options and some free time to do other things besides feeding three kids lunch during sometimes three (yes, THREE) different lunch times. 

How has your year been? Are your virtual? Hybrid? In school? How are school lunches going in your house? Either way, I hope you and your family are healthy and happy and I hope you will tune in for some lunch ideas in the future again.

Lunch is served in Easylunchboxes (after all these years still my favorite go to) and a simple homemade version of a Lunchable. The beauty of these boxes is that you can fill them infinite ways and tailor them to your kids' tastes. I stuck to the classic version and we filled them with:
  • halved baby carrots
  • apple slices
  • blackberries
  • crackers
  • cheese
  • ham roll ups/pepperoni roll ups
  • and a cereal bar.

Happy Lunch!
