3 Box Lunch Ideas for Kids That Aren’t Boring

If you are like most parents, you spend half of our waking hours worrying what to feed your family.  You want to keep them happy, physically healthy and mentally strong. With a little planning, you can take a bite out of all three with one word.  Lunch.  Here are a few ideas outside of the ordinary pb&j:

Ham Rollups

  • Whole wheat tortillas
  • Thin sliced deli ham
  • Fresh washed spinach
  • Goat Cheese

Spread the goat cheese on the pita.  Add the ham and spinach and rollup.  Slice into bite sized portions.

Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich

  • Peanut Butter
  • Banana
  • Honey
  • Whole wheat bread

Do we need to tell you how to make a sandwich?  Oh yeah, cut the crust off for the little ones.  Also very important: make sure your lunchroom allows peanuts and peanut products.

Strawberries and Cream Sandwich

  • Whole Wheat Muffins
  • Cream Cheese
  • Sliced Strawberries

One word.  Yum.

Suggested healthy sides and desserts:
