This time of year parents are inundated with lists: lists from teachers on the school door, the school supply lists from the district, and the school clothes wishlist from your second-grader (no? Just mine?). Here’s a list that we hope will actually be helpful to you as you endeavor to pack 180 school lunches (multiplied by however many people you’re packing for) this year.
These are 50+ of our best lunch box recipes — everything from sandwich basics to hearty pasta salads you can make in bulk. Plus you’ll also find links to over 100 of our best lunch box filling ideas with combinations for preschoolers, sandwich-haters, and even your partner doing a Whole30. We’re rooting for you!
