Back to School - Lunch Box Ideas

You won't believe your eyes when you see these amazing Bento Boxes. Isn't the "Devil Wears Prada" one above hilarious! While I don't expect that many of you will send your kids to school with lunch boxes like this, I do love the idea of filling up a Bento Box for them. They not only make lunch a little more interesting but they also encourage kids to eat from a larger variety of food groups!

-Plastica has colorful and wonderful plastic Bento Boxes that are great to send with the kids to school or for after school snacks. They are sturdy but beautiful. They are $38 so they are better for older children who will be responsible enough to bring all of the pieces home!
-Lunchboxes.com features a wonderful Bento Box in primary colors for the kids that comes with a spoon and fork and even a container for dips or dressings.
-If your little one hates crust then you must invest $9.95 in William Sonoma's Sandwich Cutter. It comes with a sandwich box and will shave a few minutes of crust cutting off your morning routine!
-Don't forget to pack a note! You could simply write one yourself or print off these adorable pre-made notes from Activity Village! There are also many tear out books of pre-made notes out there. I like Lot's of Hugs in a Lunchbox by Joy Stevans.
-And if you are worried that they are skipping over their veggie servings at lunch you can sneak them in using tips from Jessica Seinfeld's Deceptively Delicious! A few of her recipes can be found on Oprah.com!
