Who else is already running out of school lunch ideas? Solidarity, moms. My kids get bored with the same old, same old after about 2 weeks. So now we’re entering the second month of school and my daughter is just asking for a bunch of snacks in her lunch bag. Nooooo! One thing I can always rely on to get some healthy, deliciousness in my kids’ lunches is Driscoll’s berries. My kids eat them like candy!
Driscoll’s has so many adorable lunchbox ideas on their website. Look at these mice and cheese. I mean… too cute for words! And that doesn’t look too difficult to make even for a tired mommy in the early morning. A Bento box is the perfect way to keep your berries from getting smushed. We use them in our lunches every day. This Bento-Ware set is great because it has different compartments that you can use separately, or just one big lid to get your whole lunch in one container.
My local grocery store carries a nice variety of Driscoll’s berries. My kids go right for the raspberries! They love them the most and it’s not unusual at all for them to eat an entire container like this in one sitting. Isn’t it so nice when something that’s so healthy is also delicious? Makes it easy to get the healthy stuff into the kids. I call that a win.
Packing lunches looks about like this for us. My kids love to take soup in their thermoses and each pick out their berries for the day. On this day my daughter picked raspberries and my son went with blackberries.
They’re so yummy and sweet, they double as dessert! And in the little Bento box I know they won’t be a mushy mess when she opens it. Perfect!
