Are your kids tired of the same old pb&j and chips for lunch? We sourced tips from local moms on how to make the most of lunchtime just in time for back-to-school.
Make It Filling & Fun!
Zachary mom Laura Webster says her three boys eat a LOT, so she focuses on yummy food that’s filling, and keeps it interesting with fun napkins, little forks and other accoutrements.
Pictured below is a lunch featuring stuffed peppers, a meat and cheese kabob with crackers and a side of berries. Don’t forget to add the mini umbrella!
