Tips for Healthy School Lunches
- Give your child healthy options to chose from (they are more likely to actually eat it if they get to pick it out!)
- Make lunches the night before so the mornings run smoother
- Keep extra ice packs around the house
- Invest in a nice thermos for hot foods
- Use these for making cute sandwich shapes
