We've been brown-bagging it all week at Parenting.com and on our sister site Saveur.com, and while our healthy packed lunch ideas and two-ingredient sandwiches are great ideas, we wondered what the pros pack in their kids' lunches. Saveur.com spoke with four food bloggers for their best lunch ideas:
Phyllis Grant of the Dash and Bella goes for simple comfort foods with a grilled cheese sandwiches, veggies and chocolate chip cookies (pictured). Classic!
More blogger lunch ideas:
- Elizabeth Stark and Brian Campbell of Brooklyn Supper jazz up old standbys with new flavors, like a roast beef sandwich with tomato jam instead of slices
- Katie Workman from Mom 100 sticks with standbys like pretzels and carrots
- John Donohue of Stay at Stove Dad packs sandwiches from frozen bread, which defrosts during the day
