When it comes to making school lunches, a parent's main concern is that their kids have something they enjoy eating and enough of it. As a result, school lunches usually involves a ton of plastic packaging and unhealthy foods that are not ideal for the environment and most importantly, their kids.
Zero-waste school lunches are much better for the environment and are a great way to get your children to be mindful about the planet! That is why we have created a list of back-to-school lunches and snacks that you can make for your kids.
