It’s been 2 1/2 years since I packed a lunch for my kids. It’s not really done in France, where lunch is the main meal of the day, and is served hot and eaten at a leisurely pace either at school or at home. But I’m starting to gear up again, because I know there’s a solid chance my kids might prefer to bring a lunch than queue up in the cafeteria.
The bright spot? Browsing all the cute lunch boxes, lunch bags, and bento boxes out there! My Sweet Muffin has pulled together a particularly charming collection. Some of my favorites: Red Riding Hood insulated mug, Space Robot double-decker bento box, Insulated lunch bag, Lunchbox Car, Pinocchio bento box, Woodland snack box, and the Spaceboy bento box. Also, it’s not a lunch item, but this lion back pack is so cute I can barely handle it!
Tell me, Friends. Do your kids eat school lunch, or do they bring a lunch? (Or do they come home for lunch?) I’m working with Lindsey on a new series about Make-Your-Own-Lunch menus and I’m really excited about it — because I need some serious inspiration in this department! You too? Or are you already a lunch-packing master?
P.S. — If you’re not quite ready to think back-to-school yet, My Sweet Muffin also has a summer sale going on with items up to 50% off!
