School lunch box inspiration (with recipes!)

If you’re anything like me, you’re forever trying to come up with new, healthy ideas for your child’s lunch box (and most importantly food they will actually eat!). I would like to share some my ideas with you!

I try to incorporate most the food groups, but actually what matters most is what they are getting in a day, rather than for each meal. So if you notice a food group missing, it’s more than made up for during another meal. I will continue updating this post so keep checking in for new ideas!
