i’ve always tried to pack healthy school lunches for my kids that cater slightly to each one’s taste (so they actually eat it) but after failing miserably at it last year and as a result spending way too much at the starbuck’s drive-thru on protein packs, i decided that this year lunch packing would be a family affair. my job is to keep the kitchen stocked (and pitch-in a bit with packing) and their job is to do the rest!
to help with the process i put together a lunchbox wish list and wanted to share (download link below). ask the kids to check off an item or two in each section every week or two so you’ll know what to add to your shopping list — that way there should always be a couple things they will be excited about packing and you won’t have to do any guesswork! (win, win)

now if i could just figure out a good time to do the packing… i really dread getting everything out after i’ve made and cleaned up dinner at night but time always seems to runout in the morning. if you have any tips i’d love to hear them!
