3 Simple and Creative Lunchbox Ideas to help you pack real food lunches without spending hours and hours in the kitchen.
Happy BACK TO SCHOOL.. Lexington friends!
Today is a good day (and not just because school is back in session).
I’m doing a GIVEAWAY.. and it’s a good one! A YUMBOX in your choice of color and style!
If you are a part of the Simply Sissom FB Community , you may have watched my recent FB LIVE about freezer friendly lunch ideas. I talked about “school lunch burnout” (<– it’s a thing). It hit me hard around January last year. In all honesty, Coop was eating lunch in the cafeteria WAAAAAAY more often than I would have liked. I’ve spent some time thinking about how to make this year better, and I’ve decided I was too ambitious (i.e. themed lunches, sandwich cutouts, toothpicks with animals). This year the idea is to keep it SIMPLE. Simple food, simple lunch boxes and NO surfing Pinterest for inspiration. I’m also making an effort to stock my freezer with healthy options while it’s August and I’m feeling motivated.
Last year, I wrote posts about 3 different types of lunch boxes. Obviously I was still into the whole “variety is fantastic” thing.
This year… we’re sticking to one. Yumbox. It’s my hands down favorite, and with 2 options (panino and original), we just don’t need anything else. I like them because there are NO containers or lids that can be lost or that I need to wash. It’s just 1 piece. When the boys bring them home, I pop out the tray and put it in the dishwasher. The different containers are leak proof so no worries about yogurt leaking into popcorn, ketchup getting on the grapes, you get the idea.
