Back to School Lunch Ideas (VIDEO)

*Congrats to our giveaway winner –

Entry #788 – Kelly D.

Just after 8:30am on Monday morning this week, there was a sudden calm in my house. As if time stood still and I could hear every tiny sound in my home. The air-conditioner suddenly sounded louder. The clicking of my computer keyboard was more evident. I could even hear the refrigerator run from time to time. Yes, it was THAT quiet.

These were sounds I hadn’t really heard since the end of May and I’m sitting here at my desk still basking in the delightful silence.

That’s right, it is BACK-TO-SCHOOL time this week!

WoooHoooo!

Giddy like a kid on Christmas, I packed up my three bundles of energy with their new backpacks and lunch bags and sent them on their way to school. Sure, I’ll miss them during the day but it was time for them to go back to school. They needed it. I needed it.

Since I know the kids may not be as excited as I am about back-to-school time, I want to do my part to make their day a little special. Since the same old, boring, packed lunch is nothing to get excited about, I decided to make an effort to switch up things in the lunch boxes. Just trying to do my part since I do feel a little bad about how excited I actually am about them going back!

So, in today’s Baby Gizmo Video I am sharing a few back-to-school lunch ideas from PB&J Sushi to Homemade Trail Mix Granola Bars to help you keep things exciting during school lunch.

The pb and j sushi looks awesome. Maybe with sunflower butter since so many schools dont allow peanut butter anymore.

All great ideas! I have a 6 yr old who’s wanting to take his lunch. I don’t want to pack him junk so this all is so very helpful! Warm thermos check! Freeze the yogurt check! Roll ups check! I can’t pick one! Thanks so much for this video!
