Cute Holiday Lunchbox Ideas - Family Fresh Meals

For a kid stuck in school during December, it can be hard to get into the holiday spirit. When you’ve got to wait in the cold for your school bus every morning and sit in a classroom all day, Christmas starts to seem like a dim light at the end of a really, really long tunnel.

So I like to bring a little Christmas cheer into the school day for my kids by packing them special, festive lunchboxes. Just a touch of peppermint or a splash of red, white, and green, and suddenly it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas.Cute Holiday Lunchbox Ideas - packed in EasyLunchboxes Containers
