About this time of year, I find myself becoming a little less enthusiastic about lunch packing. (I think it’s because the excitement of the back-to-school season has slowly been replaced by the tiring pace of a busy fall schedule.)
Of course, I know packing a healthy lunch for my kids is super important, but sometimes I get into the same-old-same-old rut and need a little inspiration! Maybe you do too?
That’s why I’m excited to share one of my favorite new resources for “lunch-spiration” with you. It’s my dear friend Laura Fuentes’ cookbook “The Best Homemade Kids’ Lunches on the Planet.”
If you’ve read any of my lunch packing posts, then you know Laura’s awesome site MOMables is my number one favorite site for healthy and delicious lunch ideas and recipes. So when Laura told me she was writing a cookbook, I knew it would be far more than just a collection of healthy kid-friendly lunch recipes. And oh my, I was right – her new book is the quintessential guidebook to everything lunches.
From helpful strategies for easy lunch packing and meal planning, to tips for dealing with picky eaters and eating on the go – Laura shares all of her secrets for putting together healthy lunches your kids will love!
Speaking of which, when it comes to recipes, The Best Homemade Kids’ Lunches on the Planet contains more than 200 kid-tested & approved real food lunch recipes, including many options for those living gluten-free. So I encourage you to watch Laura’s quick video tour of her new book or take a “Look Inside” The Best Homemade Kids’ Lunches on the Planet and see for yourself what a helpful and delicious resource this beautiful cookbook truly is!
And if Laura’s new cookbook isn’t enough to get us all fired-up about healthy lunch packing, then perhaps a little Healthy Lunches Giveaway is just the FUN we need to break free from the lunch-packing doldrums.

That’s because these cute bento-style boxes are free of harmful chemicals, are machine washable, and are dishwasher/freezer safe. They’re also stackable for easy storage in the fridge and are much more durable than the typical reusable containers sold in grocery stores. These are just a few reasons why Easy Lunchboxes are one of the most popular lunch containers on the market!
