The last lunch box idea post for the year! And only a few weeks left of school. I am really looking forward to school holidays. A break in the routine and a break from making lunch boxes!
Below are lunch box ideas for December, then after that is the December weekly menu plans for your reference, where you can download the plans and the shopping lists. In my post about coping with the busyness of Christmas I noted that one of my strategies is to recycle menu plans.
While the actual menu planning process itself is quite quick, formatting for the blog takes quite a bit of time. So the plan I have included this time is repeated, as a time saving mechanism for me.
