Nathan starts back school on Tuesday, and if you attempt to drive through town it is 100% evident that school is about to be back in full swing. Each year when school starts back I get a small kick in the rear to start packing my lunch again for work. It usually starts with swooning over the ‘bento’ google image search results, then a few minutes of wishing I had a kid to pack lunch for (it’s the little things). Then I start planning and packing. This year I created a ‘bento meal plan’ (the actual outline came from here, I just filled in the items) which I have scanned in below. You can click on the pictures to make them larger, or right click on them and save/print them. I talk more about the meal plan, as well as our packing methods, in the video below. If you have ANY questions or would like to see anything further, please let me know!
Here are links to some of the items I show in the video, as well as the meal plans (let me know if I forgot anything!!):
