My son begins kindergarten this fall (in about 2 weeks!) and I’ll be packing him daily lunches for the first time. I’m currently making a list of lunch ideas and I stocked up on some essentials at Giant Eagle so that I can be prepared once school starts.
- 1 cup of Goldfish crackers
- 1 cup of dried blueberries
- 1 cup of chocolate chips
- 1 cup of dried apples
- 1 cup of mini marshmallows
- 1 cup of sunflower kernels
- 1 cup of rice squares cereal
- 1 cup of pretzels
You can change the quantities around to fit your preferences.
Basically you put all the ingredients together in a bowl, mix them up, and you’re done! Store it in an airtight container and serve it as a snack or send it with your kids as a part of their packed lunch for school.
To practice for the real deal in a couple of weeks I made up a picnic lunch the other day. In my son’s lunch I packed a Bolthouse Juice, carrots, celery, the Goldfish Trail Mix, and and a sandwich made with Smucker’s Simply Fruit Strawberry and JIF peanut butter. I also included a the all-important napkin.
I was able to stock up on all these items at Giant Eagle.
Giant Eagle is totally the place to go for your Back to School needs. I love that they have so many options for lunches! It makes it easy and convenient to get everything you need for packed lunches, easy breakfasts, and snacks for the busy Back to School season.
So, tell me, what do your kids like in their lunches? Be sure to share your ideas in the comments below!

My kids aren't old enough for school yet - but you are smart to even practice packing for picnics and parks :) #client

A friend actually recommended it... it helps to make sure your kiddo can open their lunch containers, drinks, etc all by his or her self. And it was just plain fun to have a picnic.
