Bentgo Lunchbox Ideas


It wasn’t until this summer rolled around and we enrolled Logan in a camp that I quickly realized I would need to pack his lunch every day (a blessing in disguise). Forcing myself to do it the night before seemed daunting some evenings, but then I was always super thankful once the morning craziness came around and we were running all over trying to get out the door. I started sharing these lunches on Instagram and the DMs started rolling in asking me to continue and save them if possible. I had to chuckle because Matt literally the night before said “do people even care about these lunches?!”…and it felt great to prove him wrong, ha!

Anyways, I decided on the Bentgo lunchbox as I was a big fan of different compartments and it allowed me to fill it up with small bites from different categories for Logan to create his lunch. It is dishwasher safe and then I would place an ice pack underneath this box in the lunch bag (which also has room for a snack on the side). Cooking for Logan and our family has always been fun for me, so while scrolling through this post please keep that in mind! A few things that were tricky ended up being thinking of ideas he could eat cold or room temp. Our go-to grilled cheese had to quickly be replaced during the week and filled with other options.

Secondly, his camp did allow nut products, the only allergy was mango, so it was nice having the option of almond/peanut butter on some days, which I know can be rare for a school setting. I also have individual snapshots saved under my “Lunchbox Meals” Highlight over on Instagram if you wanted a closer look that way! I hope this post brings you some inspo as the school year begins and I have linked a few of our favorite lunchbox making supplies at the end as well!
