Other lunchbox ideas to try:

Don’t forget to keep things simple! The more that you try and overcomplicate things, the harder it tends to be. Instead, pack food items that don’t require a lot of prep. And give them items that you know that they are going to eat! There’s nothing worse than finding out that your kiddo didn’t eat the lunch that you sent them because they didn’t’ like it!

Have your child help you in making their lunch. If they don’t like what you’ve packed them, enlist them to help you make it next time. There’s nothing wrong with them helping out in the kitchen! In fact, there’s a good chance that they’ll start eating more of their lunch since they’re the ones packing it!

Send food items that will stay good all day. Fresh fruits and veggies are the perfect items for lunchboxes because they’ll stay fresh all day long. That way, if your child gets hungry and needs a snack later, you can rest easy knowing that they have great options just waiting in their lunchbox.
