Wow with These Back-To-School Packed Lunch Ideas

Aug 12, 2015

Give your kids a healthy, complete, and tasty lunch to start the school year with a smile

Get rid of the sloppy joes, tater tots, burgers, and pizza that your child is faced with for lunch at school, and replace it with a sandwich, vegetables, and a cookie or two! Not only is this much healthier than any of the school’s fast food options, but it saves money, and guarantees that your child is firing on all cylinders in each class. Sandwich filling ideas:
  • Classic peanut butter and jelly
  • Chopped chicken Caesar
  • Hummus on feta
  • Turkey, Swiss cheese, and dried cranberries
  • BLT with an avocado spread
Note: Get creative with the bread! From whole grain, to pita, to sourdough, there are many options to compliment the fillings. For a healthy side, include:
  • Chickpea and almond dip with pita chips
  • Chewy nut bars
  • Carrot sticks and hummus
  • Broccoli with ranch
  • Cranberry and oat bars
  • A piece of fruit
Whip up a simple dessert:
  • Vanilla cupcakes
  • Chocolate chip and almond cookies
  • S’more bites
  • Sugar cookies
