Making lunches for school every day can be a parenting challenge. How to make them healthy? how to make them tasty so they’ll eat them? It’s a balance between making them healthy, easy ideas, and something they will eat.
Now that my son is a teenager, I don’t make themed or cutesy lunches but I still use some of the ideas I learned when I started researching ideas. He’s never been much of a sandwich kid (though when younger it helped when I used a fun sandwich cutter) so we do a lot of ‘lunchable’ style or food on a stick for lunches.
