First day of school!

These are my three monkeys, Will, Jake, and Luke. As we head into another school year, it's time for Mom to start packing lunches again. I let my boys choose one hot lunch per week to eat at school, and the rest of the time, I pack their lnches. It saves us a ton of money, plus they're getting healthy food they'll actually eat.

A few years ago, I became obsessed with bento lunches. Bento is a Japanese term referring to single-serving take-out. The idea is that instead of packing two or three big things in a lunch, you pack several smaller items.Here are some of the lunches I've made for my boys. I hope you find some ideas your kids will enjoy!
