Healthy school lunch ideas that are quick, easy, and don’t break the budget is what is on the calendar since Back to School time is right around the corner!
Gone are the days of the PB & J sandwich in a brown paper bag for lunch.
Don’t get me wrong, I still do love a good peanut butter and jelly sandwich, but noshing on one of those every day gets a little boring.
I don’t know about you but I am loving all of the options that parents have now when packing their kids lunches! Between the fun bento boxes to the cute lunch boxes, the possibilities are endless when it comes to packing fun lunches for your little ones!
If you are packing lunches for the older kids and they love pasta, then maybe a Tortellini Salad may be an option for them. Of course you can still pack a fun dessert in their lunches too. Our no-bake madeleines would be a fun idea for your teen who is on the football team!
We have put together a fun list of healthy school lunch ideas for your kids. You may even want to make a few for yourself. You know, since technically we should try everything that we pack for the kids, right?
