When you’re trying to get everyone up, dressed, fed, and out the door in the mornings, packing a lunch is probably the last thing on your mind. If you’re inclined to toss a sandwich and some snacks into a brown bag and call it a day, you’re not alone — pretty much every parent has been there.
Not every kid is going to be excited about the same basic sandwich, though. If you want to pack a lunchbox your child will actually look forward to opening, you have to base it on their personality: a picky eater who hates greens won’t be thrilled with make-your-own lettuce wraps, but a creative artist-type might be. Take some inspiration from these four school lunch ideas for four different kids, and get ready to give your little one’s typical packed lunch a makeover.
