You can’t be at school to cheer your child on, but a little note in your child’s lunchbox can go a long way. Lunchbox notes can give kids a jolt of confidence in the middle of the school day. And that can be just the self-esteem booster kids who learn and think differently need.

We asked the Understood Community and team members to share what they say in lunchbox notes to their kids. Some send song lyrics and silly jokes. Some share notes that let their kids know they’re thinking about them. And some send notes in picture form, which can be helpful for kids who struggle with reading.

Print these lunchbox notes and use them to make kids smile, let them know you’re thinking about them, or give their confidence a boost. You can also create your own notes based on your family’s jokes, sayings, and traditions.
