Beyond The Sandwich: Back To School Lunch Ideas

Beyond The Sandwich: Back To School Lunch Ideas

Sharing is caring!

Look. I don’t even pretend to be a good cook around here. I mean, we eat and no one complains (too much) so it seems to be working out ok. But I do love super simple back to school lunch ideas that help get the kiddos out the door and fed! And of course, I get by with a little help from my internet friends!

When my kids want a little more in their back to school lunches, I reach to Pinterest for ideas. Of course. 

And you probably do too- which is probably how you found this post. It’s the perfect place to find all kinds of mom hacks, especially useful when you got to get the kids back into the routine this fall. 

Let’s go beyond the sandwich and reclaim back to school lunch!
