31 Days of School Lunchbox Ideas: Day 6 | 5DollarDinnerscom

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.

    Thank you so much for all the lunch ideas. I am a homeschooling mom of six and lunches are especially difficult in our house. Your easy ideas allow my older kids to make lunch for themselves while I take care of the baby. Blessings.

    I am a first time lunch-packing mom this year so I really appreciate this series. I have been wondering about food we normally eat warm (like quesadillas – or burritos which my daughter asked for the other day). I have always include an ice pack as there are some things (dairy, fruit, etc.) that I think needs to stay cold. Do the items you normally eat hot get cold? Are they just room temperature and do they taste good that way? Thanks for your insight! :)

    Hi Erin love all these ideas. But my problem is some of these lunches look like they are served hot. My son is seven and does not have a way to heat these up at school. Maybe some more ideas that are cold lunch only would be amazing… thanks a bunch

      Kaylene – For the typical warm foods, Erin recommends serving them in a thermos. For the purpose of this series and consistency with the photos, we placed everything in the Easy Lunchboxes containers. See a great food thermos to check out on each post under the lunchbox supplies list!
