Only on Day 2 of school lunches and already starting to struggle for ideas? A few months ago I posted about my daughter's lunches....with a great response! However, there was a common thread- "Do you have any ideas that are nut free?" haha I hear ya! Because my daughter is in a home based Montessori which also happens to be a vegetarian home, it has no restrictions on nuts but animal proteins are a no go. At home, however, we are not vegetarian and once my daughter transitions to public school her lunches won't be vegetarian based either. So, I started to document some of the lunches she has had in the last few weeks (and even put them in the Planet Box!) to help with public school lunch ideas. I don't have a tonne of pictures...yet. But because this has had such a great response, my goal is to start a monthly series to keep you going with 5 new lunchboxes a month, because, let's face it, by Thanksgiving creativity is usually dwindling...
So, here is my first (technically second) instalment of Lily's Lunchbox!
