50 of the BEST Kids’ Snack and Lunch Ideas!

No matter what part of the country you live in, school will be back in session before we know it. My sweet boy will be starting Kindergarten this year and I’ve been at a complete loss as to what I’d be packing him for lunch or having ready for him when he returned home from a long day of learning. I knew I wanted to do something special, something that will brighten his day and make him smile.

Since this is the perfect time to re-evaluate what fun lunches and snacks our kiddos get to eat, I’ve rounded up 50 of the BEST Kids’ Snack and Lunch ideas to take the guesswork out of the process. Some fun treats too!

Hi y’all! I’m Katie and I blog over at my little slice of the internet, Sweet Rose Studio. I’m passionate about all things related to parties, pictures, and anything pretty; I find I have a tough time limiting myself to just one genre on my blog! I married my high school sweetheart and since then, we’ve added two crazy amazing kidlets to the mix.

I’d love for you to stop by the blog or you can come find me on Facebook, Pinterest, or Instagram!
