I promise you that this will be a hit! Kids love being able to put together their own lunch and eat it so there is where the deli meat and the crackers are perfect! Add in some fresh veggies and fruit and you’re set!

My boys love this lunch recipe because it’s simple and full of foods that they love. I like to add in fruit that I know they’ll eat so there isn’t any waste.

What are some tricks for packing lunches?

The biggest trick is that you shouldn’t stress! Just pick a few foods that you know the kids will love and then fill their lunch boxes full of them. It’s really as easy as that!

The food waste comes from sending foods that the kids won’t eat. Save the money and the food and figure out what they will eat and want.
