Kids Lunch Ideas for Back to School || Part 1: Breakfast for Lunch

Though my little one isn’t school aged yet, she is eating us out of house and home already (or so it feels at times). Meal planning and prepping now includes a sweet little mouth to feed and offers the challenge of creating healthy, filling, and enticing choices. So this month, as your kids head back to school or you settle into a new routine, I’m sharing some of my favorite mini mouth lunch meal ideas.  Trying to think outside the (lunch) box can be difficult when it comes to kiddos, but I feel like you can’t go wrong with breakfast …
