One of mom’s biggest tasks is giving her kids lunch boxes filled with good and healthy food. With easy to prepare ideas and a few cool gadgets, you can make it happen.

5 Easy Back To School Lunchbox Recipes
I like to know what my kids are eating and where their food comes from. This is why I pack their lunches and always send homemade food. Meals provided by most schools are not fresh and are highly processed. I believe kids deserve real food made with fresh ingredients. If you are also interested in homemade snacks, please see 5 Processed Kids Snacks You Should Avoid.
Remember that a healthy breakfast is really important too. So stay away from processed foods full of artificial ingredients and sugar. Want some healthy breakfast ideas? Check out my 5 Worst Breakfast Foods For Kids Plus DIY Healthier Options.
Interested in a cool lunchbox for your kids? I am loving the new Bentology Healthy Balanced Lunch Box System. It’s BPA, PVC, Lead & Phthalate free. It is also very easy to clean and super convenient for a school lunch. Their multi-containers are designed for you to send the perfect healthy-balanced meal. This lunchbox works perfect for the recipes below too. A little imagination and your kids will get excited about their lunchbox every single time!
I always like to send fresh fruits and veggies. Remember that kids should eat at least five servings of fruits and vegetables a day. Using cutters will also help your kids get super excited about eating healthy foods. This super cool bento box has the ideal containers for you to always send them to school.
