Back to School Lunch Box Ideas! {Kabob LOVE}

School is BACK in session…what a bittersweet time for us moms. It’s SO hard to let go of those warm summer days, sleeping in, going swimming, not being on a schedule, and the list goes on. But, it’s so exciting to see another year come knocking…. reuniting with school friends, new learning experiences, projects, field trips… I just love seeing my children grow!

With back to school, comes back to packing lunches! This year I want to add some healthier varieties.

Here are some “Comfy” lunch ideas that I will be making in my children’s lunch boxes this year! 

I suggest using coffee stirs or popsicle sticks for kabobs so not to cause injuries!

Have a GREAT start to a new school year everyone! 



  1. Those are beautiful, and such great ideas for lunches!! Hope the sticks aren’t considered weapons these days. I’m mostly kidding, but it’s getting kinda crazy out there with their zero-tolerance stand in some schools. Stranger things than that have been confiscated.
