Since it’s the first day of school for many Northwest Arkansas kids, we thought we’d turn our attention to lunch boxes. Specifically, the goodies that go into them. Isn’t it hard to stay inspired throughout the school year? If you’re like us, you end up packing the same thing day after day.
With that in mind, we thought we’d start the year off right and grab some ideas from our Northwest Arkansas friend Christy Walker (here’s her blog) and a few other mamas out in the blogosphere.
Christy is always coming up with the cutest, healthiest foods to go into her daughters’ lunch boxes.

We would love to see what you’re packing into YOUR kids’ luncboxes this school year. Send us a pic so we can share with others in this Mealtime Mama space. Email us: mamas AT nwaMotherlode DOT com. We all get bored making lunches, so let’s inspire each other!
And one last thought: For great snack/lunch options that are also super HEALTHY, visit Ozark Natural Foods!
