What do you like to pack your kids for lunch once they head back to school? I'm looking for some new and exciting ideas. :)

Leftovers, sandwiches, wraps, rice balls, there are tons of easy ideas on pinterest and blogs. We bought silicone ice pop sleeves to freeze smoothies in so they could thaw mostly by lunch.

We use a spiral slicer to make cucumber and carrot ribbons.

I like homemade lunchables. I just did an anon post about my kitchen and this is some meat I love from costco. Rotisserie chicken, cooked and pulled and ready to go. With that I'd send babybel cheese, whole grain crackers, fruit and yogurt maybe. Also things like trail mix, cottage cheese, wraps, standard sandwiches. You name it. :)

Mine got into dipping apples, pears and celery in peanut butter last year. She liked homemade lunch ables, cold pizza, tuna salad and crackers or tuna stuffed tomatoes (I used large cherry tomatoes so she could just pick them up and bite them in half). Mini bagels with cream cheese cucumber and ham.

These are usually staples in my son's lunchbox, as well.

My son is a creature of habit.  He just sticks with this. I have tried but I would rather him eat than not eat.

Babybel cheese is one of my sons favorite lunchbox item. Rotisserie chicken is a good idea.
