Great School Lunch Ideas for Kids - #BackToSchool


Since school is starting, some of us may have forgotten the rigors of packing a lunch for the little ones. How do you balance nutritious food with stuff they will actually eat? How do you make sure they won’t trade their food for the other kid’s Oreos? Well, here are some great, creative and tasty lunch ideas for your kids.

1. Angry Birds –

As you can see from the picture, this lunch idea is inspired by the popular game, Angry Birds. The little pigs are made from grapes and icing eyes, the big pig is made from a peeled kiwi.
The red bird is BabyBel cheese with part of the wax peeled back, carrot shaving beak, and olive eyebrows. The black birds are olives and the big white bird is a hardboiled egg. A tasty, fun and healthy lunch! The sliced sandwich is simple peanut butter and jelly.

2. Wrap it up –
Everyone loves wraps. A tortilla is a great way to make lunch portable and easy to eat. Bean and cheese burritos, chicken and rice, even pizza rolls made of marinara sauce, mozzarella cheese and toppings of your choice.

3. Simple sandwich –
The simple sandwich is the go-to lunch for many parents. You can liven up the sandwich by adding surprises like sliced bananas, leftover meat from dinner shredded, or even exotic nut butters and jelly flavors.

4.Snoopy –

This cute lunch idea is very easy. Just cut a sandwich into Snoopy’s shape and decorate with lettuce and an olive nose. Woodstock is made of cheese and more lettuce and then add fruits, veggies, or pasta to finish off the meal! A sliced tomato is Snoopy’s collar.

5. Leftovers –
If you have some leftovers from dinner, they can make a healthy and tasty lunch for kids. Plain pasta sprinkled with a little parmesan, and rice with butter, salt and pepper can complement a plain sandwich.

Kid’s lunches can be fun, taste great, and be good for them with only a little planning. Make sure you don’t pack anything that might go bad, but other than that have fun! The most fun you make their lunches, the more likely they are to eat them.
