Easy School Lunches your Kids will LOVE

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Rubbermaid. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

It’s back to school time in my house.  Today was the first day!  Are you needing a little lunch packing inspiration?  My kids eat both a packed lunch and school lunch, when they have something they like (breakfast for lunch).  I try to make the meal interesting, but it can be hard when you’re tired and in a hurry.  Sandwiches get boring and fast.  One way I keep things fun is with new food storage containers.  I love this LunchBox Kit from Rubbermaid.  I’ve been using it this past week while my daughter was in camp.  Check out these great and fun lunches I made her.

Here’s the first one.  I made her a homemade pizza kit.  I used an english muffin and then I put all the toppings in the top part of the container.  She loved making it herself.  The little container for the pizza sauce was great.  The lid was easy for her to remove.


Here’s the next day.  She had a bowl of cereal.  You can pack milk in a thermos or your kids can buy it from the school cafeteria.  She also had blueberries, raisins, and mixed peppers.  


On day 3, I had some left over pasta salad so I packed that for her.  I included some pretzel sticks and a clementine.  Pasta salad is such an easy thing to make and kids usually love it.  I usually just throw in the vegetables I have at the house and some Italian salad dressing.  I usually make it when I have a “little of everything”.


The last day I made a tossed salad.  My kids love salads and they love putting them together.  I included dressing in the little container and added the freezer pack that it came with to keep it cold.   The sections in the tray are the perfect size for what I needed.

It all stacks up easily and each item is secure and I love that I have the opportunity to give one away to one of my readers.  There are so many things you can put in them for the kids (you can even use it too).  It just takes a second to enter.

I'd use this for my little girls lunches, and the most important item to her would be a cheese stick. I'd also pack her a turkey sandwich and some fresh or dried fruits ;)
