School Lunch

A Note From Gillian Fein

The question of "what's for lunch" can feel like a massive weight. Families want to pack healthy and delicious school lunches that kids will actually eat, but sometimes it's hard to know where to start. A great packed lunch helps fuel kids to learn properly throughout the day, prevents food waste and builds confidence in the lunchroom. Packed lunches have evolved tremendously over the years and now include bento boxes and foods that accommodate allergies and special diets. I hope that this feed provides you with inspiration to pack delicious lunches for your family!

Vegan Mac And Cheese

Dairy-free macaroni and cheese?! Yep! This lunch is all about a few of my kid's favorites made BETTER. For starters, we love mac and cheese around here, and I make it in moderation, but I also alternate with this version you see above; it's creamy, yummy and packed with goodness (like, potatoes, carrots, onion, garlic, cashews, etc.), and your kids likely won't even be able to tell the difference! Vegan macaroni and cheese; you really gotta give this recipe a try! - And then I have some crackers, turkey meat and cheese all cut and prepped for some make-your-own "lunchable" sandwhiches. And though carrot and green peppers are not favorites with our babes, they are more interested in eating these veggies when they are cut into sticks. So, sticks it is!... Simple, but so effective! Also, a few sliced strawberries and a peach-flavored water from @drinkwonderwell in place of a traditional "juice" box!

Gluten Free Zucchini Muffins With Walnuts

ZUCCHINI MUFFINS for days! Our favorite zucchini bread recipe makes two loaves, which is already a bonus, but this time we tried making half of them as muffins and this happened This family recipe is a fan favorite. Whether as a bread loaf or muffins, they are moist, not too sweet and really yummy. Even people who# say they don't like zucchini, love it!. As for muffins versus bread, apparently people have preferences, or at least my family does. My son prefers a slice of zucchini bread, my husband prefers muffins any day, and I like them both
