My kids are all in college now, but it seems to me that kids go back to school way to early. When I was growing up we returned to school after Labor day. Back in the day, I was a picky eater. My mom was forced to feed me salami and mustard sandwiches 4 days a week and one day I would take a peanut butter and jelly sandwich to school.
My kids weren’t as picky, and I wasn’t much better at coming up with great healthful alternatives for them either. But you are all in luck. Today for Sunday Supper we are sharing back to school recipes with all of you.
I love the creative new lunch boxes the kids have these days. Bento box styles, insulated styles, they are all so great. A whole lot better that the tin cartoon character boxes of days gone by.
