Getting our little ones to eat their lunch is a struggle, and when you add a balanced meal into the mix it becomes nearly impossible. When combating parenting challenges like this, it’s important to get creative. That’s why we created our Instagram series #LunchboxLove, which provides meal-planning inspiration for parents who are looking to go outside the (lunch) box.
We rounded up our favorite Disney-themed lunches that will get your kids even more excited for mealtime — alongside their favorite characters. Whether they want to sail across the horizon with Moana or satisfy their rumbly tumbly with Winnie the Pooh, these lunches will add a bit of magic to your child’s day!
