I don't know if they get it from me (because, I admit, food is my downfall) or if it's because they are growing boys, but when my kids hear that there is food involved in anything they are all over it.
So, as it would seem, when it comes to going back to school food is a really big deal. Especially in a world where you have to have the "good stuff" in your cold lunch to be the "cool kid".
Last year, for my son, that was not the case. He usually got a peanut butter and jelly or ham and cheese sandwich with whatever was on sale at Meijer and a fruit of some sort. And he was expected to be happy about it. Which he wasn't (and can you really blame him).
But this year I made a promise to my all grown up, I have to be cool, 1st grader that his lunches would be different and fun.
But for me, since I am determined to be the "cool mom", they also need to be fairly easy.
So whats a mom to do when her baby big boy has such high expectations? She hits up Pinterest of course!
And through that I have compiled a list of 20 great, easy, healthy, and yummy cold lunch ideas for the lunch boxes of my house and yours.
