I got a little gift the other morning. It made me smile! Question of the month is: What are you best back to school lunch ideas and/or tips.

I’m not one of those moms that makes fancy lunches. My daughter gets a sandwich, a carb (chips, crackers, or bar), a fruit (cut up fruit or pouch) and something fun (fruit snacks, a cookie, a leftover candy from a party, etc).

I do have one tip to share. squirt lemon juice on sliced apples and place in baggie in the fridge. It saves it from getting brown and tastes even sweeter. Happy Wednesday!
