31 Lunchbox Essentials
This conversation is being sponsored by Wet Ones, however all thoughts are my own.
To help the new getting-off-to-school routine go easier, Ive made a master list of basic lunch possibilities for Sam. On busy mornings (and nights before) I dont have to figure out what to pack, I just check over my list. Sam gets a healthy lunch, a love note of encouragement and a travel pack of hand wipes.
When theyre away from us at school, one of the ways we moms can take care of our kids is to send hand wipes with their lunches. Im sending Wet Ones Antibacterial Hand Wipes in Sams lunch. Yes, I did receive compensation for sharing this but I really do think its a great product. Kids are busy at school and its just natural that they get a little sticky with all the things their fingers explore. Teachers are busy and Im sure they dont have time to make certain everyone washes before lunch. I cant stand the thought of Sam eating a handful of school germs with his lunch!
Wet Ones Wipes kill 99.99% of germs, theyre hypoallergenic plus they contain aloe and lanolin so theyre not harsh. Because I dont want Sam to forget to clean his hands, I pack the Wet Ones travel pack right in his lunchbox. I also keep a canister of them in the car so as soon as his day is over we wipe the germs away. Im thinking that will make a difference once cold/germ season starts making its rounds too.
Heres my go-to list of ideas for lunch boxeshope it makes the beginning of your day start easier, too:
Sandwiches, Juices, Milk, Wet Ones
Mini Pizzas, Pasta, Pasta Salad

Pretzels, Granola Bars, Crackers

Pepperettes, Garbanzo Beans, Sliced Turkey, Hard Boiled Eggs, Nuts (check w/school policy)
