Back to School Season is here and that means packing school lunches– a love/hate relationship for me, as I LOVE researching new and fun lunch ideas, but I know it can easily get overwhelming and tedious, and we often end up falling right back into the sandwich-everyday pattern. And don’t get me wrong- I love a good sandwich… but there are SO many other easy options! Here are 15 school lunch ideas, beyond the sandwich. For 25+ lunch ideas and a planner template, check out my free kids lunch guide here.
