Fresh Lunch Box Ideas + Cute Animal Lunch Box Notes {Free Printable}

I can’t believe how quickly summer break flew by! My kids went back to school last week, and as much as I didn’t want to see them go, it has been nice to finally get back into a routine. 

My twin girls started first grade this year and so far they are loving it. One of their favorite parts is getting to eat lunch at school. I’m sure the excitement will wear off after a while, but for now, they think it’s pretty cool!


While there will be days that my girls eat hot lunch at school, I plan on packing them a lunch most days. It’s important to me that I pack them food that is both healthy and delicious. 

I used to think that it was too expensive to eat natural and/or organic foods until I discovered the Natural Foods Department at King Soopers.

Horizon Organic Snacks

King Soopers is my go-to place for all of my grocery shopping, especially when it comes to natural and organic foods. They have a wide selection of quality brands to choose from such as Silk, Horizon Organic, SO Delicious and Simple Truth.

King Soopers Natural Food Department

My girls and I had fun shopping the Natural Foods Department at our local King Soopers the other day. We had no trouble finding plenty of great items to pack for lunch the first week of school.

Fresh Lunch Box Ideas featuring Horizon Organic

My girls picked out a variety of Horizon Organic products — Milk Boxes, Cheese Cracker Sandwiches, Cinnamon Snack Grahams, and Mozzarella Cheese Sticks.

They also picked out a selection of natural/organic foods — carrot sticks, grapes, strawberries, apples, whole wheat bread and tortillas, peanut butter, strawberry jam, turkey lunch meat, and cheese slices.

Cute Animal Lunch Box Notes

Since this will be my girls’ first year eating lunch at school, I thought it would be fun to make some cute animal lunch notes to pack in their lunch boxes to brighten their day. It’s a simple gesture that goes a long way, especially on those first days of school. Aren’t they cute?
