If you follow me on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter you have probably seen my daily "Lunchbox Inspiration" posts where I snap photos of what my kiddos are munching on at school.
I love making lunches for my kids because it combines two things I'm kinda crazy about: organization and food! I try to keep things interesting by giving them something a little different everyday because it encourages them to try new foods and keeps my creative juices flowing. The meals I make take no longer than 10 minutes of prep/cook time (not including the "Freezer meals" which need to made ahead of time), while the kids are eating their breakfast. Then I pack 'em, snap a pic, and send them on their merry way.
I thought I should have a reference point to direct people when I'm asked for previous photos of my kids' lunches so I'll be posting them here at 10 day intervals. Hope you enjoy!
