Change up your kid’s everyday lunch with these fun, healthy bento box lunch ideas.
Today’s post is brought to you by my friends at Produce for Kids. I’ve been lucky enough to be a contributor on their blog for the past year and am always amazed by the resources, recipes, and tips they share on Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest. While I’m not packing school lunch just yet, I know many of you are! As far as packing school lunch goes, it seems like bento boxes are all the rage! In keeping with the trends and ensuring your kiddos are fueled for a busy school day, here are 10 of my favorite bento box lunches from the Produce for Kids website. Be sure to scroll down to learn more about WHY school lunch matters to this awesome organization [plus there’s a link to even more school lunch recipes + easy weeknight dinner recipes]. Enjoy!
10 Easy Bento Box Lunch Ideas
If you’re a fan of bento box lunches OR want to enter to win one, then I’d encourage you to take the Power Your Lunchbox Pledge to eat healthier this school year. Once a day, anyone who takes the pledge will be entered to win a Bentology bento box. Be sure to visit the Produce for Kids Power Your Lunchbox Site August 8 through September 18 and get healthy lunchbox ideas, tips, coupons and more! For every pledge taken, $1 will be donated to Feeding America® programs that benefit children and families across the U.S.
Along with lunch-packing ideas for parents, teachers can now get in on the action too. PowerYourLunchbox.com has a complete teacher resource page with fun lesson plans, certificates for their students, take home materials for families, and the ability to take the pledge as a classroom. Every teacher that pledges will be entered to win a $500 school supply gift card.
Here are additional ways as to how you can get involved:
- Take the pledge at poweryourlunchbox.com and share with your friends.
- Show off your healthy lunchboxes. Upload your healthy lunchboxes to Instagram or Twitter using the hashtag #PowerYourLunchbox.
- Party with Produce for Kids on Twitter. Join Produce for Kids and healthy lunchbox brands at the #PowerYourLunchbox Twitter party at 9 p.m. ET on Wednesday, August 17.
