My Name Is Snickerdoodle: Lunch Room


Lunch Room

I am one who stresses. 
Always have.
Hope to not always will.

One of the (many) things I am trying to not stress about with Liam going to school is lunch.  I want him to have the best nutrition, a super fun lunch and not be too hungry during the day.  Am I the only one?  Silly, I know.
I've been doing some searching on some fun lunch options for him (since I will be making his lunch every day because he's too picky of an eater to get a hot lunch).   I wanted to share some of these fun ideas with you!

 I loved Lisa's (100 Days Of Real Food) idea of doing pinwheel kabobs

Melissa (Another Lunch) has dedicated a whole blog to lunches and 
shared this fabulous recipe for Chocolate Chip Granola Bites.  Liam would totally eat this!

We all know Mel (Mel's Kitchen Cafe) and she had a great idea to make 
a little list of lunch solutions that she keeps taped up in her cabinet. 

And how adorable is this little lunch calendar for all of us OCD moms out there!?  
Angela (Anything But Perfect) is the talent behind this goodness and 

Carolyn (All Day I Dream About Food) has a wonderful recipe for homemade fruit snacks.  Um...YUM!!!

One Charming Party always has great ideas, but this book worm is too cute! 

I could go on and on.  Now instead of stressed about what to do, I'm excited!  

So, for all you veteran mom's of school kids, what are some of your favorite go to tips and tricks when it comes to school lunch?


  1. One thing I love to do is send small treats and notes. If I send a treat I always send more than one because Ben loves to share with his friends. And he loves to keep the notes I send him in his binder. My kid is very picky and always has about the same thing every day. PBJ, carrots or apples, pretzels, a juice box and a treat. He's perfectly happy with that! Keep in mind that kinder kids almost always have crazy early lunch so I'm always armed with a snack when I pick him up. And it makes it harder to bring in a fun fast food treat because most places aren't even serving lunch yet!

  2. Oh, I am so loving your advice on extra treats and a snack in the car! Thanks!
