My favorite one was the Pinocchio Bento Box with the separate lunch compartments. May have to get it.

I don’t get to pick out cute lunch bags anymore. :-(

So if you are planning a trip there…..great place to get Bento boxes!

Planet Box is my favorite as well.

I agreed, reluctantly.

He came home in tears. Because of the line and a 17 minute lunch period, he never got to eat a bite. So sad!

She really caught me by surprise with her big compliment, as I never really thought about it… My formula is simple: something wholesome, something veggie, something sweet. I pack the same things I would have given her at home for lunch. I don’t hesitate to pack warm soups, dinner leftovers, tiny salads, even beans in a small container to nibble on. Chicken drumsticks are my daughters favorite! The secret is to have a thermo container :-)

One day a month is pizza lunch and another day is a hot lunch once a month which parents can go to and it is super good. We use planet box and it makes packing lunch easy. It’s metal with an army look that you can embellish with magnets and a carrying case that is durable. There are tiny little containers you can purchase that fit perfectly for smalls and meals. It comes back and everything can go in the dishwasher. I figure they probably won’t take them for high school then I can use them for portion control!

Really need some great ideas as I’m sure sandwiches will get old. Ideas on high fiber would be awesome too. It’s what my son needs but black beans are hard to pack for lunch.

I’m a rookie for sure!

I ordered one of those adorable Goodbyn lunch boxes and packed it with sandwiches cut into hearts, in addition to fruit, veggies and a small treat. This lasted for three days: the siren song of cafeteria food lured her right in. I just can’t compete with pizza, mac n’ cheese, tacos etc. So the goodbyn sits on the shelf but there is a small reward in that my daughter is so proud of memorizing her account number and the freedom of choosing her own foods. And it has actually broadened her food horizons a bit. So while I love this post (and anything back to school related!) I will be putting money into the lunch account again. : ) Gabrielle: I know you are beyond busy, but I hope you will have a “what to wear to school” post again. I looooove those! Good luck with your move!

The 15-20 minute lunches in America are for sure one of the things that will be hardest for us to get used to again.

I’m burnt out, and need some fast, nutritious ideas. Perhaps you could do a post on that? (please) Also, we were using the tupperware lunch n’things containers but they are worn out and I don’t think they are made anymore, so I am in lunch container limbo. I really like the all-in-one containers because there aren’t any little lids to use. So, if you would do a post on that, I’d be very happy. So many requests, I should offer something as well. I’ve started cooking a pizza, or fish sticks, or burritos, and putting them in lunches, because I can make it the night before. Not ideal to eat that stuff cold, but it is easier for me!

I like to get mine done the night before but I find it one of the hardest chores of the day. Looking forward to some fresh ideas and inspiration! :)

With 5 kids in school and lunch times that are only 20 minutes long, there’s no way to properly eat school lunch. My oldest kids love to pack leftovers since our senior and junior highs provide microwaves in the lunchroom so they can re-heat things. But, I always love new lunch ideas, so I’m waiting on pins and needles for Lindsey’s post!
