12 New School Lunch Ideas

school lunch ideas

Time for another Preschool Lunch Post – because you can never have too many ideas when it comes to packing lunch!

As you can see in these photos, we’ve been loving our new PlanetBox. Not only does Lucy like the Bento-style container, but I love how it comes with container inserts that work perfectly for yogurt, dip, applesauce, etc – anything you don’t want to leak. Also love that it’s stainless steel and fits in it’s own lunchbox with an ice pack!

When I’m sending something that needs to be reheated, I use glass or plastic containers, so the teacher can easily toss the container in the microwave.

I’d love to hear what your kids have been enjoying lately too!

    Thank you so much for these wonderful lunch ideas!
    Where do you buy organic freeze dried veggies?

      Hi Anita! I bought these at Whole Foods – they’re the Happy Family brand (the same brand that makes baby food pouches, yogurt melts, etc).
