Back to School: Packin’ Lunch

It’s time to get packing’. For lunch that is. If we want our kids to eat healthy, we have to help them enjoy it! Making the lunches look fun to eat will (hopefully) MAKE them fun to eat! 

One of my favorite finds is this puzzle sandwich cutter. How adorable does it make an ordinary PB & J? You can find this on Amazon.com 

Meat, cheese and veggie wraps are easy to make and easy to eat. You can buy multiple meats and cheeses for wraps to last for a few lunches. This one is a turkey and bacon wrap found here. 

Homemade pizza buns. YUM! Homemade, so without all the unnecessary preservatives and junk that is usually found in pizza. Recipe here

I love LunchBots Bento Containers! They are the perfect storage for food and lunches. You can find some at LunchBots and Pottery Barn Kids offers some adorable options as well. There are stainless steel and plastic options. I love how they have little compartments for keeping food separate and there is no need for a ziploc baggies!

Chicken Parm kebabs (chicken nuggets, lettuce, tomato, mozzarella cheese) and fruit salad in the LunchBots Duo. Marinara sauce in the LunchBots Dip.

An almond butter dipping station is perfect for on the go snackers! Almond butter in the 4 oz. LunchBots Rounds. Celery with dried cranberries, pretzels, apple slices, and graham crackers in the LunchBots Quad.

What are some of your favorite things to pack for your kids’ lunches?

Mini & Me: Back to School

Are we there already? Is Summer almost over? Say it isn’t so! The bitter-sweet beginning of the school year is upon us and it’s time to get ready for that early morning rush of gathering lunch, waking up the kids and getting them out the door on time.

The kids may think the 1st day is all about looking their best. Although that may be true, it’s also about making the morning as easy as possible. Maybe we are dreaming. For this month’s mini & me we have gathered a few stylish items that are quick and easy to get out the door looking fabulous!

Toms have become a classic and a closet necessity. They are comfortable and no fuss.

Mini, Mommy

This jersey dress from Urban Outfitters is amazing. Simple, comfortable and easy to dress up or down. It’s the perfect 1st day dress for mom! Leggings and a little blouse. A perfect go to. Comfortable for the 1st day and wearable for outdoor activities or in the classroom! 

Mini Top, Mini Leggings, Mommy 

Herschel Supply Co. has SO many great options for bags and backpacks. We love the options for kids backpacks to keep some style while packing those books!

Mini, Mommy

Mini & Me: Seeing Stripes

Stripes are so fun. I love mixing and matching patterns and colors. The can make a simple dress more exciting AND can make for a great matching outfit for you and your mini. 

When I saw this dress from Wolfe Child, I instantly thought of a dress I recently came across at Anthropologie and couldn’t resist the opportunity some outfit matching inspiration! 

For me: Anthropologie, Warby Parker, Seychelles

For mini: Wolfe Child, Jcrew, Zuzii

For both: Bradley Mountain Scout backpack ..

Bradley Mountain is a company that specializes in rugged mountain gear, but they make some stylish backpacks that are great for a mom on the go.

According to Mom blogger, Kelly Murray, they are toying with the idea of a mini-Scout bag (as shown here) and we say … yes. It’s too good. 

What are you and your girl wearing today?
