List of Lunch Box Ideas

August 13, 2011

It’s almost that time of year — lunch box time!  It’s just my husband and I right now, so I only have two non-picky palates to please.  Easy, right?  For the most part, yes… even so, it can still be a struggle to keep lunches exciting and fresh day in and day out.

I’ve scoured the internet and have compiled some fun ideas for the upcoming year.  I printed off this list and have it hanging on the fridge for future reference.  Who knows – maybe it’ll spark our healthy snacking life, too!
