The Bug is in camp for 4 weeks this summer, so I am back to packing his lunchbox. Same rules apply, since the camp is run by his pre-school, which is actually housed in a Jewish Temple. So all meals consumed on the premises must adhere to Kosher rules (laws? Sorry if my terminology is bad. I am not Jewish.). Since Kosher meals cannot have meat or dairy together, for simplicity, rather than worrying about if one kid’s meal conflicts with another kid’s, the rule is that all meals must be meatless. This is a challenge since we are decidedly NOT vegetarian. But I am totally in favor of some meals being vegetarian, so I actually love this. Luckily, we do not have to be nut-free, though I do try to minimize sending in nut-based items, simply for safety.

I’ll give you links and recipes when they are available, and let you know what went over well, and what he was not a fan of. I’d love for you to share ideas, photos, and links in the comments, on Facebook, or Twitter every Wednesday. I think we could all help each other give our kids a variety of nutritious lunches! I know I am always looking for new items to pack. Plus, it is fun to be a little bit of a voyeur, right?! I will tell you, the photos aren’t up to the same quality as my recipe photos – I just take a quick shot with my iPhone while I am assembling lunch.

If you want to remember any of these ideas, just follow my What’s in the Lunchbox Pinterest Board.

Share your ideas, recipes, links photos here, or on Facebook or Twitter. I know lots of mamas (and dads, too) who would love some lunchbox inspiration!!
