Back to School Lunch Boxes


It’s Back to School time again and for your family that means busy days with hectic schedules. Clothes shopping, picking up school supplies, meet the teacher night, sports sign-ups and that anxious feeling of the first day of school.

No matter what your child’s age good nutrition will help them navigate these hurdles head-on. That’s why we at Summeripe believe so strongly in Bentology. What’s that you might ask…we know…it sounds like a class but it’s actually a fun, smart way to get your kids to eat healthy portioned nutritious foods that help balance their every day. Here are four really simple ideas that are fun to make and provide all the fruit, vegetables, and proteins your student will need to achieve.

  • Baby Carrots

Cucumber Caterpillar & Turkey

  • Summeripe Peaches & Nectarines, sliced
