Fresh Ideas for lunchboxes!

Okay, so by now, you've probably noticed that I also have a little bit of a control problem, even when it comes to my kids lunches.
I'm trying to change, but old dog, new tricks... you get the picture...
Today, I would like to discuss a little about things OTHER than sandwiches for lunch boxes.
There are a plethora of foods out there, totally appropriate for lunch that don't involve bread or lunch meat! My kids have access to a microwave for their lunch, so we add lots of hot stuff from home too, but if your kids don't have that access, then below is a great alternative.
So here goes!
Sliced Cheese and apple slices
Tuna and crackers
Pasta Salad
Macaroni Salad
Fruit Salad and Yogurt dressing
Chicken Salad in lettuce cups
Apple's and Peanut Butter
Fruit N Cheese Kabobs
Pita Sandwiches
Mini Pita Sandwiches
and on and on and on!
The tuna recipe is in a previous post. My family loves my macaroni and Pasta Salad recipes too.
What I love about them, is the amount of veggies you can add, and they last about a week in the fridge covered. The boys just take what they want in a container and cover it up for another day that week.
Recipes for those two salads in the next post!
Ciao!
