We LOVED reading all the great Lunch Box inspo from some of our fabulous @Bradshaws1895 followers on our Instagram feed. Here is a summary of your great ideas to get us going this September AND a recipe for healthy granola bars that will become your new favourite snack to pack in either an adult or kids lunchbox!
Most parents don’t love the sugary content.
Here is a quick and easy granola bar recipe that even the kids can help you with!
2 cups old fashioned rolled oats

That’s the base – feel free to add whatever your preferences are:
Slice while still warm and let cool. Once cool wrap them in Abeego all-natural wrap! Not sure what Abeego is? Read our Abeego blog about this cool Canadian product!
...and for days or weeks that it’s a struggle just to get everyone dressed and out the door – here are a few lunch hack ideas.

Takeout - Salad Rolls from Sirkel Foods – order several, keep in fridge and pack in lunches – great for kids or adults - just skip the peanut sauce for most schools!

No time to bake? Grab some wholesome baked goods from Edison’s like this sugar free, gluten free banana bread! Fits perfectly into the Trudeau Fuel Bento Box that everyone is loving right now!
If you're anything like us, sometimes we feel like we've exhausted our ideas for packing lunches, but thankfully YOU all came to the rescue with these great ideas!
And... don't forget a sweet handwritten note. One parent even wraps her kids lunch in wrapping paper if their birthday falls on a school day.
Now that is SPECIAL.
Hope you enjoyed these ideas... Let's make those lunches interesting this year.
Stay tuned for our upcoming post by Sara Bradford of Nourish Real Food who will inspire us adults to pack OUR lunches as well!
