31 Days of School Lunchbox Ideas: Day 16 | 5DollarDinners.com

I know how busy and intense the transition from lazy summer days at the pool to adjusting back to the 6:30 am wake up calls can be…so I thought I’d help out by sharing a different lunchbox idea each day this month.

What’s In Today′s Lunchbox?!

Disclaimer: These ideas are just a small part of the total food eaten throughout the day. Some have smaller amounts of protein and/or green veggies than others, but you can balance that out with serving more protein or green veggies at other meals/snacks. Feel free to adjust these ideas to fit your family’s needs.

Can your kids heat food at school or do they eat the pasta cold? I’m new here so I apologize if you have answered this effort. :)

I was wondering the same thing about heating. My 1st grad daughter can’t heat up at school and won’t eat it cold. (not that I blame her ) :)
