This step-by-step guide will help you pack simple, nutritious lunches your kids will love in under 10 minutes. Never stress about lunches again!
Your kids have specific nutrition needs for growth & development, what you pack can help support this. I'll help you do it in a super simple way.
I walk you through the key components to include for both nutrition, learning and fun.
Have a "picky" eater on your hand? Don't worry, I've got some helpful tips so you can pack their lunches with variety even if they only like a few things.
I've included a one-page printable summary of all the lunchbox ideas so you can keep them on your fridge for quick reference. Let's keep things simple!
With the quick guide, you can build your own endless lunch combos, but just in case you want some already put-together ideas, I've got you covered!
Want to know my favorite lunch packing items? I covered it all inside this guide. Including the packaged food items (and brands) I buy in my home and recommend to my clients.
I keep things super simple when I pack lunches, but occasionally I'll add something that uses a quick recipe. I've included a few favorites + 30 different super simple lunch box photos.
When I had to start packing lunches for my daughter every day for school, I started out super motivated. I'm a pediatric dietitian, I had this in the bag. But then a few weeks in I realized just how easy it was to "forget" to pack her lunch and have to throw things together at the last min. What started out fun, ended up just being kind of stressful.
One day, when I was chatting with my friend she told me how helpful all the lunch ideas were that I was sharing on social media and that she started writing them all down to make things easier. I had an AHA moment.
I immediately went back home and started to write down and categorize the foods I was buying and serving and I typed them all up to keep on the fridge. Lunch packing suddenly was 100x easier. As more and more people started asking me questions about my method, and what foods I was buying, I decided I wasn't the only one that once found packing lunches a little high stress. And so the idea for this guide was born.
I hope it helps you as much as the process has helped me. Super simple, nutritious lunches are possible, let me show you my process!
