This year, my girls are taking their lunch to school almost every day. I am trying to control the food that goes into their bodies as best I can, so I am making sure that their lunches are something that they look forward to. I came across a blog with some great ideas and thought I would work them into our lunch boxes.
I found all of these items at Target for under $5.00! While I realize that these are just small things, it has already made a difference with my kids. The napkins were marked down to $.88 a pack. I got the bandz and puppy dog bags in the dollar bins.
Here is a typical lunch for us. My girls love cucumbers and I put a little container of dressing for dipping sauce. Have you tried the Nature Valley Granola Thins? They are a great alternative to chips. They have a choice between pudding or applesauce. I try to get 100 percent juice or a water with a powder pack is a favorite of theirs. My oldest daughter loves the flavor of white organic milk so I try to get it when I find them on sale.
