First Day Of School Lunch, Pictures & More

school lunch

Today was my daughters first day back to school. Miss Kate is entering third grade and Jane could not be happier to be entering kindergarten.

Yes, these are pictures of their school lunch. I love making Lovable Lunches and yes, they may be Pinterest perfect, BUT don’t let that fool you. My house looks like a bomb went through it, and it is 11 am and I have not even showered yet. (Have I mentioned that I have no kids at home? Yeah – so I should have no excuses).

Want to know what is in their lunchboxes? This food is for morning break, lunch and afternoon break.

Here is what is in each school lunch:

  • Celery with sunflower seed butter & raisins
  • Sea Salt Rice Crisps & cheese for one lunch and Organic Seed crackers and cheese for the other
  • Homemade Nut-Free Bar
  • Coleslaw
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Organic green grapes
  • Corn tortilla with mashed pinto beans & medium cheddar cheese
  • Hummus (because my girls love to dip)

Anyway, here are some other fun pictures from our morning that I figured I’d share. The first day of school is worth celebrating!

  1. I love the “what I want to be when I grow up” – Such an adorable idea! Hope they had a wonderful first day!

  2. Soooo cute. It’s fun to see your girls almost the same ages as mine (grade 3 and grade 1) – mine also love to dress the same. I think it’s so sweet.

  3. You really do have two little sweethearts! I love your white board that they are holding too and those lunches, oh wow! Do they know how lucky they are?!

  4. Love the white board idea.

  5. Aww it’s so cute when they match!

    Wonderful lunches. I would so love to do something similar but just can’t get myself to.

  6. Your little ladies are AWESOME!!! Ok, so when I are going to pack my lunch? You’re right.. Pinterest perfect!!!!

  7. I love the photos of your girls on their first day of school. I also have a grade 3 and 2 kindergarteners this year. Wow, the lunch that you made for your girls is simply stunning.

  8. Wow, those lunch boxes are awesome (both the food and the actual containers, lol!) And your kids are of course adorable!! 😀 Love this white-board “When I grow up” idea. I bet it even helps the kids focus on school more if they remind themselves every now and then that there’s something to work towards (even if the goal may change every other year! 😉 )

  9. what good looking lunches your girls had. I love that you had what they wanted to be written on a white board. Great idea!

  10. Caroline M. says:

    WOW! Amazing lunches, outfits and frame ideas! Love it.

  11. Your girls look so cute in their dresses! I love that they wore the same kind on the first day of school! I did take photos of my first grader but I did not take a shot of his lunchbox. I love their lunchboxes too! So full!!!
