Ella starts a part-time kindergarten program next week so I’ve been trying to collect some easy lunch box ideas to make my mornings a bit easier.
I’ve collected an assortment of themed and non-themed ideas that I think she will love – and wanted to share my discoveries with you!
I’ve tried to stick with mostly healthy lunches – it’s really easy to get kids excited about junk food, but I want to pack healthy meals that I can feel confident that my daughter will eat and thrive on during her busy day.
