Next week, we are back to school, and some of the more popular questions posted to my Facebook feed from mom friends are inquiries about lunch ideas for their kids. Oddly enough, its a question I tend to ask myself on a regular basis. It’s pretty easy to get stuck in a runt making the same lunch day after day, resulting in your kids choosing not to eat! Last year, on more than 10 occasions Ryder came home with a fully stocked and untouched lunchbox.
Over the years as a parent, I’ve come up with a few lunch options that have earned the stamp of approval from my kids. It may sound crazy but food should be packaged in it’s own compartment. Fresh cut fruit pieces dripping on the bread of their sandwich will result in your kids tossing their lunch in the bin. Prep and presentation are key. Divided lunch boxes and things like tooth picks for small bites add some flare, but I like to go a step further with Ozery Breads, making creative lunches even more fun! Ozery Breads have become my kid’s favorite for lunch sandwiches, and even breakfast toast. They are the ultimate alternative to boring pita, and exciting for those youngsters who prefer their bread without crust. Without artificial flavors, colors, and preservative, these flat breads are super tasty!

Below are a few ideas for back to school lunches with Ozery Breads. The first set of ideas is for the snacker, the one that doesn’t really eat the entire sandwich, instead everything around it! Use Ozery Mini Rounds to create a fun assortment of foods.
