30 Kid's Lunch & Snack Ideas Plus Recipes

Moms all over have the job of providing a lunch and snacks for their kids each day, whether they are in school, home schooled or it is the weekend.  That is 365 lunches and possibly (if your child eats like mine)  730 snacks.  It can get really boring eating the same things over and over and my daughter can be pretty picky.  When I do groceries she wants me to buy the same thing, ham, cheese, crackers and fruit. This is fine, she has her favorites, but she also gets bored with the same things. So, I am forever searching out new recipes and ideas to make her lunch fun, yummy and a bit more healthy. Below you will find 30 of some of my favorite lunch and snack ideas for kids.  Some of these are great for adults too! Enjoy!
