Just say no to square pizza — school lunch doesn’t have to be boring. In fact, you probably already have all the ingredients you need to make the most fun school lunch ever.

I challenged myself to see how many lunches I could make with the thingsĀ I always keep in my refrigerator and pantry, including:

  1. Bread
  2. Quesadilla wraps
  3. Crackers
  4. Something sweet
  5. Celery
  6. Carrots
  7. Broccoli
  8. Shredded cheese
  9. American cheese
  10. Deli meat
  11. Tuna or chicken salad
  12. Strawberries
  13. Apples
  14. Blueberries
  15. Bananas
  16. Yogurt
  17. And don’t forget the pasta salad!

That was all I needed to make 46 —Ā forty-six — lunches!

And if you don’t own any bento boxes, go buy some. They’ll totally change your life. They make it so easy to pack an easy, healthy lunch for your kids.
