I have talked a lot about lunchboxes lately, maybe that is because I have been lucky enough to never have to pack one for my son until next week!  We are so blessed with my parents who watch our kiddos every day for us since they were infants - so blessed.  But now, our biggest is headed to full day school next week!  ah!!!!  This means now that I have gotten back into the swing of meal planning for dinner I have to adjust my thought process and also do a meal plan for Jude's lunchbox.

Honestly, I think Jude is more excited about having a lunchbox for school and getting to eat there more than anything this year. So silly, its the little things in life right? Once we headed to Walmart to pick up the rest of his school supplies and his new lunchbox we were feeling in the lunchbox season mode. Don't get me wrong, I am still trying to figure out how to pack him a wholesome lunch every day but with the help of Nature’s Harvest® Bread & Entenmann’s® Little Bites™ snacks I am feeling way more prepared.

Nature’s Harvest® offers top-quality, delicious breads in a variety of flavors. Bread seems to be an essential in our lunchbox plans but I love this brand because every variety is baked with whole grains, at least 8g per serving, so I know my kiddos are getting great nutrition through their school day. With no artificial flavors, colors or high-fructose corn syrup, I make these lunches with confidence!

Entenmann’s® Little Bites™ snacks have always been a favorite of both of my kids.  They are a great option for every age and come in a great perfectly portioned package.  Hello easy!!  Our favorite is the Chocolate Chip Muffins but recently we tried the seasonal variety S'mores - OH MY GOSH!  Stocking up on those too!!

I am pretty excited for our first lunchbox we filled for a "test run" day at Jude's school.  I made sure I added some items that I knew Jude would love along with protein and extra veggies.  To give him a little creative addition to his ham and cheese sandwich I cut the sandwich into strips.  Making lunch fun will be my goal this year!!  Hopefully my motivation keeps up.  I will say, the Nature’s Harvest® bread worked great for this little project - high quality bread allowed for me to create this meal.  I might even try shapes next week!

  1. That's a great giveaway prize! I would certainly LOVE to win $10k in a savings bond! We don't start school until the 24th, and I will be up to my ears with lunch boxes to pack! I can use some of these ideas to fill an easy lunchbox.

  2. While I may not have a little one who needs a lunch packed for school, I do pack my husband lunch for work daily. Lately we have been using these cute little bento boxes which has been fabulous. The bento boxes makes it easy to give him some veggies, fruit, and some snacks for throughout the day in addition to his lunch. Also, we LOVE Nature's Harvest honey wheat bread in this house and we often use it to make sandwiches.

  3. What an awesome giveaway prize! I have been packing lunches for a while and my kids just love those mini muffins. I also know that a sandwich tastes just a little better when it is cut into a special shape!

  4. Isn't it funny how excited kids get when they pack their lunch?! It cracks me up. I always have grand plans for our lunches, and then I lose my creativity by the end of the year. This year I'm planning on adding in little notes and jokes just for fun.

  8. What a fun and scary new step … fun for him, scary for us parents. My daughter was so excited last year when she started Kindergarten and was able to pack a lunch. It’s so nice to have great products that we trust and feel confident sending our kids to school with. Best wishes for a great school year!
