Homemade Lunchables!

9:31 PM

My kids both love Lunchables as a special treat. Unfortunately, the cost can be high and the foods aren't always that great.

I've seen a lot of posts on Bento boxes and moms making homemade Lunchables and a few weeks ago, I started making my own.

Here's an example of a homemade Lunchable box I made this week. This one has:
-Fruit cup

You can pretty much put whatever your kids like in your box. I like to make a bunch at the beginning of the week and then my kids can go grab a healthy box when they feel hungry.

Here are some other things you could put in your homemade Lunchables:
-Turkey slices
-Goldfish crackers
-Wheat thins
-Apple slices
-Dehydrated fruit
-Beef jerky
-Half a sandwich
-Chips and salsa or cheese dip (I make this one for my husband)

One thing some moms worry about is that their kids won't get a prize or treat with homemade Lunchables. To combat this, consider putting a piece of chocolate or a prize in each box.

Have you ever tried to make your own Lunchables at home? What did your kids think?
