50 Gluten Free, Organic & Healthy Lunchbox Ideas

 

Here are 50 Gluten Free, Organic & Healthy Lunchbox Ideas for Kids & Adults too!

I pack my sons lunch 5 days a week.   I try to plan the menu using all the food groups and in our school we do not have to follow nut free.  They do have a nut free table in the cafeteria however I can pack items that include nuts.  I take the approach of sending a variety. I do require him to bring back what he doesn’t eat so I can get an idea of what he is “really” eating and I also go to the cafeteria at least one day a week and eat with him which is a lot of fun and very eye opening :-)
