Back to school - lunch box ideas

One more week and the kids go back to school. I'm pretty organised and have ticked new uniforms, school shoes, stationery supplies and new lunch boxes off my list. 

I am loving these personalised lunch boxes from Stuck on You. They are a great size and the new range of colours are gorgeous.  I always love to have the boys names front and centre on all of their school stuff as there is less chance of it being left in the playground and ending up in lost property.  Plus the fact that the lunch boxes are insulated is wonderful as their lunches will stay cooler and fresher for longer.

I also picked out these matching pencil cases. They are a great size and can fit all of their pens, pencils, rubbers etc. Even a ruler.

Now that I have the school supplies sorted my mind has turned to lunch box ideas. 

I'm always full of enthusiasm at the start of the year to provide new and delicious lunches.
Something different from the same old sandwich I fall back on.
I came across some great ideas on Pinterest.
