school lunches

I made a pdf with school lunch ideas (with a LOT of help from on-line and real time friends- THANK YOU!!!), specifically using the laptop lunches bento-style box- for my boy. So, this isn't quite how I wanted it to publish, but it is here for all to see, use, enjoy, alter, tinker with, whatever. All I know is that now I can pack a lunch and snack in 5 minutes flat. We choose our main dish on the weekend and fill in the rest with what we have in the pantry and fridge. I do it all the night before and everything is fine when he eats lunch at 10 am (YUCK! I know! But school starts at 7:30 am). I'm still planning to get a thermos for soup and/or hot pasta during the winter, but our daily highs are still reaching the 90s, so we won't think about that until mid-late October or even into November. Enjoy it!

WOW. Thanks for the great list! I have a kindergartner to be, and I have been thinking about the lunch situation.
This will be a great asset.
Straight on to the fridge.

I'm so glad you figured it out. And it is currently 1:08 p.m. and only 65 degrees. Aidin packed the Thermos today.

Fabulous! The chart is so useful! My child is homeschooled but for our outings and picnics and the like, and for Papa who gets a packed lunch, this list is definitely a time saver!
