School has started for our kiddos here in the Northeast. (That means normal work hours!)
Before school started, I sat down with my two youngest and we put together not one, but three school lunch menus, and we wanted to share them with you. Consider it our back-to-school gift to your family!
A note on lunchboxes:
There are a lot of great lunchbox systems out there. We use Bentology because they are durable, made in the US, and more affordable than some options. However, if you want to completely avoid plastic (even BPA free, which has some controversy) you might check out LunchBots or PlanetBox.
A note on recipes referenced:
You’ll notice that there are cookbooks referenced on some of the menu items. These are favorites of ours, but feel free to substitute and tweak for your family’s preferences.
The cookbooks are:
- Heal Your Gut Cookbook, by Mary Brackett & Hilary Boynton
- Everyday Paleo Family Cookbook, by Sarah Fragoso
- The Grain Free Family Table, by Carrie Vitt
These menus are meant to give you ideas, but make them your own!
