We keep kosher therefore my kids can only eat what I pack for them. And I always pack fruits and vegetables and protein-rich foods. No junk.

3 Chelsey Belt August 25, 2009 at 6:31 pm

sounds great.

4 Shannon August 25, 2009 at 6:50 pm

I use small 1/2c containers for pudding, applesauce, jello etc... money saver- it costs me a quater the price of buying the handy snack size cups

I keep healthyish snacks on hand and let the kids pick which one they want - if they choose something, they're less likely to complain.

We make lunch the night before and use the little snack size bags for chips so the bag looks full but he gets less- also we have gotten a bunch of larger cookie cutters and use one on his sandwich each night- it is super cute and he is excited to see what the shape will be!

what you do to make your kids’ lunches healthy and fun? i use cookie cutters to make things fun shapes, and i set up a menu like a restaurant menu to let her have some say.

Do you have a favorite fun food? we love jello jigglers with fruit in it, cut into stars.

Do you include a handwritten note reminding them that you love them? i don't, but i should start.

11 maya August 25, 2009 at 8:43 pm

Well I don't pack lunches for my kiddos yet but my husband is a teacher so I pack his lunch. I try to also write a note to brighten his day.

I have always used the cookie cutter trick to make my kids lunches seem more appealing to them. I make sure that they are 100% part of making their lunches so that they cannot complain and to make sure that they are going to eat it and not waste. They love fruit and veggies so that helps a lot.

I don't leave notes for my son in his lunch yet (he is 4) but I do leave drawings sometimes. I also will occasionally use cookie cutters to cut his sandwiches into fun shapes and he loves his fruit salad in his Incredible Hulk thermos.

19 Christy August 25, 2009 at 9:26 pm

I would LOVE this!!! Right now, my oldest is going in to 1st grade so this is my first experience with packing school lunches. My plan is to have veggies and use fruit as the dessert rather than cookies or or sugary things and I will backing packing water rather than juice.

20 Christy August 25, 2009 at 9:26 pm

I have your site on the sidebar of my blog and refer to it often!

I like to include fruit, especially grapes or bananas that they can eat with their hands.

23 Terrae August 25, 2009 at 9:40 pm

V-A-R-I-E-T-Y!

24 Kristen August 25, 2009 at 9:49 pm

I love fruitabu for lunchboxes - though I love the cheaper variety that Target sells better. :)

My daughter just loves her bento box because everything looks great in all those tiny sections. Healthy foods never looked better!

27 Melissa August 25, 2009 at 10:19 pm

Lunches - my best ideas are to make sure that there are alot of choices, and at least one not completely healthy, but somewhat healthy snack included!

We homeschool so we don't always pack lunches unless we are going on field trips or co-ops. So each one has their own special little bag with their fave treats to take along. When we are home we like to eat lunches in muffin tins :)

My daughter loves yogurt, I put in the freezer the night before and take it out right as we are leaving to put in her lunchbox, then when she has lunch it is almost thawed out, still kind of slushy, she thinks she has a great treat.

34 Jaina's Mom August 25, 2009 at 10:31 pm

I allow my son to pick what ever he likes, only allowing him to pick one unhealthy snack . I let him help me pack lunches the night before. He loves to eat peanut butter , fluff, jelly and bannanas! ( which he gets as a treat!)

40 Ally August 25, 2009 at 11:22 pm

I sometimes "paint" my 10 yr old daughters sandwich with food coloring. Of course, all you can do is abstract art since it bleeds out, but she loves the effect. (dab lightly and it won't be soggy) You can do a great Picasso-like rainbow!

41 E Simpson August 25, 2009 at 11:23 pm

I don't have a lot of ideas for making school lunches fun, but I will be reading these comments. My poor little girl has to be getting tired of pb&j on wheat!

My little boy had half-days at preschool up until now, so I don't have that much experience making lunch boxes, but my idea of a fun and healthy lunch would be to use many different color foods (carrots sticks, grapes, blueberries, orange slices, etc) and cut sandwiches with a cookie cutter into fun shapes. Thanks for a great giveaway!

fruit and veggies plus a love note from me

48 Cynthia August 26, 2009 at 2:33 am

Fruit are always a must in my son's lunchbox. I usually put the fruit in a container that is easy to open and easy to find.

My kids love fruits and vegetables so I make sure they are always in their lunch box.
