The final days of summer are upon us. We are busy packing in those last activities that we wanted to do this summer, school shopping and meeting new teachers. You’ve probably gotten most- or at least some- of your child’s school supplies ready for their first day. You may have even picked up a new backpack or lunch box. Have you thought about what you plan to put in that lunchbox yet?

If you are like us, we dread the whole packing a lunch chore. It’s hard to find the perfect combination of food that is healthy, easy to pack and something your child will actually eat. That’s why we’ve come up with the list of ideas below. School mornings are hectic.

Don’t let packing a lunch stress you out. This list below has some fresh, new ideas that go beyond the ham sandwich and chips, and will give your child the nutrition they need to succeed in the classroom. Most of these are easily served bento-style, with small portions of each to create a mix-and-match lunch. If these don’t suit you, or you run through them all and need more inspiration, check out the links below from Pinterest for an ever-changing supply of ideas! Anderson Pediatric Dentistry wishes you a great school year!
