How to Pack a Back to School Lunch Like a Boss


Rules for packing a back to school lunch like a boss:

  1. Bust out your very coolest lunch packing supplies – extra points if it includes anything they haven’t seen yet.
  2. Think about what foods will fill bellies and guarantee smiles.
  3. Make it easy peasy lemon squeezy.


Back to School

I’m not at all excited about my kids being back in school – and by the way today is also opposite day (ha!).

My son has been a little nervous about this whole “back to school” thing. He started kindergarten this year, his first year in “big kid” school where he has to go a whole 6 hours! His sister is in 2nd grade this year so this is all old hat for her.

*Side note on my kids’ school – they attend a small – 36 kids, private, French Bilingual Community Montessori school (say           that 5 times fast). It was never in the plan to send our kids to private school but things don’t always go as planned…                     #amiright?

Because of a little “case of the nerves” I’ve been paying more attention to what I pack in my son’s lunch the first few weeks. Just want the little guy to know I’m thinking about him 🙂

  1. Lundberg Organic Brown Rice Cakes  I get mine at Trader Joe’s, with homemade peanut butter (tutorial coming soon!). I added these fun eyeball picks which will keep the peanut butter from sticking to the top once the box is closed!
  2. Trader Joe’s Cheddar Rockets kept separate using these fun star shaped silicone muffin liners.
  3. Mini Healthy Bakery Style Chocolate Chip Muffins by Now this is a treat I can feel good about.
  4. Yellow Watermelon from Trader Joe’s – you can probably still catch these if you’re fast! I used my fruit and veggie punches to just cut out a few that were star shaped. Ain’t nobody got the time to cut them all out in the star shape. Nobody.
  5. Roasted Almonds.
  6. This lunch was packed in the Yumbox Panino in Kai Blue with the emoji tray insert.
