Since it was warm for the first few weeks of school, we did a lot of cold treats. Frozen grapes are something my girls love and since my daughter, Sydney loves her yogurt, I decided they would be a nice addition to this frozen treat!
Easy as dunking your grape in your favorite yogurt (we used vanilla Greek) and putting them on a plate. Freeze and you'll have a tasty snack! These Frozen Yogurt Drops were a huge hit too!
As the weather gets cooler, we will be incorporating more soups and stews into the lunchbox. I invested in a good thermos last year and it was great. The girls really enjoy having something different to take and the element of surprise (a fancy way of saying leftovers!)
One of my favorite tips regarding school lunches? Keep it interesting! There are dozens, thousands probably of websites dedicated to keep you out of that school lunch rut! I love Weelicious for inspiration and ideas!
