Celebrating Sweets has one of our favorite blog posts on healthy, easy, creative school lunches that aren't boring, are full of nutrients, and even Mama would pack these inspos in her own work lunchbox, too! Planet Box is a popular stainless steel lunchbox, which she uses below (find it here via Amazon).

Below are some of our fav meal combos she created, but you can view all of them on her full blog post here.

Easy Lunchboxes is also a Queen of school lunches; check out her full blog post here; below we're sharing a few of our favs she featured...

I adore packing lunches for my son (and am secretly wondering when little boys outgrow cute, practical lunch boxes and think they're embarrassing??). I share lunches as I make them on my Insta and blog, but below are some of my top favs from Pre-K last year. I also get tons of questions about this BPA-free and leakproof lunchbox, which you can find on Amazon here.

Working Mother also has a great round-up of 20 school lunches you can make in 5 minutes or less. Check them out here.

What are your favorite lunchbox combos or easy school lunch go-tos?
