This was one of those Groundhog Day weeks where I felt like I packed the same foods over and over in the boys’ lunches. Carrots, cucumbers, grapes, apples — you will not see a single lunch down below that doesn’t contain at least two of those items. The lack of fun fruits and veggies is one of my least favorite things about fall and I think my boys feel the same way because we’re all getting a little tired of seeing the same things over and over. But there’s no arguing that they are tasty!

I packed Augie’s nearly identical lunch in the PlanetBox: hummus, carrots, cukes, tofu, grapes and breadsticks.

Thursday I sent Wyatt’s lunch in the ECOLunchboxes TriBento: dumplings, mini saltines, granola bar, carrots and apple chunks.
