Pack a Lunch… And Make It Cute!

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!
