Healthy, Easy, & Thrifty School Lunch Options

My oldest will be six next month….dear lord. He’s been in kindergarten for the past five months and has an amazing dad who packs his lunch everyday! Packing can be a big pain, so I wanted to share some of our healthy, easy, and thrifty school lunch options.

So, while perusing Pinterest I found these cute DIY valentine’s day cards. It looked super easy, so I thought I would give it a go.
