Last summer I shared one of my most popular posts to date…Unboxing the Bento…What’s for Lunch! and thought I would share some other lunch ideas. I am always looking for new lunch ideas for my kids, especially during the school year. Since school is gearing up I thought I might share some of our lunch ideas….plus help motivate me to keep the fun lunches coming.
My kids are funny when it comes to food. Where I can eat the same breakfast or lunch for three years straight (maybe a little dramatic), they need change. They need options. Here is what our lunches look like…
Cheese quesadilla / salsa / tortilla chips/ yogurt smoothie/ caramello
ham sandwich/ wheat thins with cheese spread / yogurt smoothie / Babybel / 1/2 granola bar
mac and cheese/ 1/2 a brownie / goldfish XTREME cheddar / munster cheese / wheat thins
1/2 turkey sandwich / goldfish mix / raspberries / grapes / 1/2 a brownie
grilled cheese sandwich / banana chips / goldfish pretzels / no bake cookie / ritz crackers with nutella
Pita pocket/pizza sauce/cheese/mini pepperonis (to make their own pizza)/ cherries/ CHEX mix/ cherry tomatoes/ apple sauce/ Easy Ooey-Gooey S’More Bars
Grapes/ Gardettos/ Star white cheddar Cheetos/ Pepperoni/ 1/2 a granola bar/ cheddar cheese
mini bagel bite pizzas/ sweet potato fries/ cauliflower/ rice cakes/ cherries/ cupcake
These easily can be used and duplicated for school lunches as well. I get all sorts of sizes and shapes of Tupperware to keep items, throw a juice box or have the kids pick up a milk through the lunch line and they are good to go. What are your kids favorite lunches?
