20 Healthy Lunch Ideas Kids Can Take to School

For some reason, our bus company decided to start training new drivers right at the beginning of the school year when we are just getting back into the swing of things. This means this new driver arrives at our stop so much earlier than scheduled. The first day she was driving we just barely made it and the kids were running to the bus. The second day…well let’s just say I felt a teeny bit foolish stalking the yellow bus down the street. Today we made it! Woot! But that’s because we left super early and my kids were perhaps too tired to care about what lunch I gave them.

Plus it is Patriots day at our school which means it takes the guesswork out of what to wear! Love the school spirit days when they are easy like this.

Next week, however, these are the healthy lunch ideas kids all over school will be talking about. Did you see that sandwich so-and-so had?
