School time is coming up fast, and it is time to think about getting creative with lunches. Instead of simply filling a lunch box with juice, a sandwich, and a fruit snack, why not make them guess whats coming each day?  A great way to do this is with a varied amount of foods, and switching it up often.

First up, lets discuss snacks.  Classically the fruit snacks are used, especially with the younger kids, but there are tons of kinds and varieties of those as well.  Visit an international market, that is always fun.  Try giving the kids soup and gold fish crackers or cottage cheese and pretzel sticks, things like that.  You don’t have to be “that mom” spending 400 hours making an adorable bento box they aren’t going to eat anyway- just fill up their lunchbox with foods they like, and a variety of them. Soup, pasta, salad, even pizza with the proper containers could work.

Any kind of drink can be packed, but the best thing for them is water.  You can give them sun tea or flavored water to keep their sugar intake down or for a surprise.  It can be cute to get your kids a bento box, and fill it with an odd assortment of fun stuff, with each compartment having a new surprise lunch treat.  Maybe think about leaving a note, small drawing, sticker, or just a special chocolate treat- that will make your child’s day.  The smallest of sentiments go a long way.

Don’t forget the clean up.  Make sure to pack a Wet Ones so your little ones can keep germ free and clean after (and before!) lunchtime. America’s #1 Hand Wipe, they are perfect to clean messy hands and kill 99.99% of germs. They have an Aloe formula, so they won’t dry or irritate your skin like hand sanitizers can. And, they’re hypoallergenic- what more can a mom ask for in a wipe?
