Last year I got to Rock the Lunchbox and this year I am doing it again. I am doing things a little different though. I enlisted the help of my baby girl to come up with lunch ideas that are healthy, tasty, and fun to eat.
First, I asked her to draw her dream lunch. I told her not to worry about what anyone would think of it, just draw whatever it is that makes a perfect lunch for her. Most kids might have drawn a lot of junk but I was happy with what she created. The Princess came up with a dream lunch that is pretty healthy, making my job on this post a little more challenging!
Grilled Cheese, Watermelon, Pizza, Bagel, Mango, Strawberries, the new Annie's Farm Crackers, and a Honest Kid's Juice Box.
As healthy as her lunch is, I tried to tell her there is no way she could eat all that food in one sitting! Together, we sat down and figured out options that will rock her and her brother's lunch boxes.
She loves bagels and it is a great lunch option but also one for breakfast too. Whole Wheat Bagel with Organic Valley cream cheese and a glass of Organic Valley Milk is a perfect way to start your morning.
Then we moved on to creating lunchbox ideas that rock! With a little help from Rudi's, Applegate, Stonyfield, Honest Kids, and Annie's we made yummy lunches!
Applegate has recently introduced Half-Time. These lunch kits are perfect for last minute lunches, field trips, and road trips. I love that I can have the convenience without sacrificing the ingredients.
She was very proud of the results!

I Want To Try The Tip Chloe From Honest Kids Shared! Write A Message Of The Back Of The Honest Kids Pouch! Super Fun Idea!
I am eyeing those Applegate Half-Time snacks… I can’t wait to see those in stores. For lunches, I want to ease the chore of Packing lunches. So far I have breakfast nailed down to ease that, but lunch is another story. Work in progress I guess.
Since my son only gets a snack at his preschool I would love to try the Applegate Farms Half Time snack pack. Looks so good and super healthy too!
I like the one with the pasta and veggies.

Our oldest is a HUGE PB&J fan, but I get tired of the same old sandwich. I liked the idea from the Rudi’s video to do PB&J roll-ups to put a new spin on it. I also liked her reward card idea; what a fun surprise to find at lunch time and to know that after school something cool is going to happen. Pretty sure I’ll be trying both of these this year.
I would love to try some of the rolled sandwiches this year.
This must mean it’s time to start thinking about going back to school. Ack!

I want to try the idea of making sandwiches look like a Mickey Mouse head.
I’d like to try the PB&J Sushi idea. Cute!
Yummy- fabulous ideas!! Thanks for sharing!
