SIMPLE AND HEALTHY SNACK & PACKED LUNCH IDEAS
I don’t know about you, but I’m always on the lookout for quick + healthy lunch ideas! Lunches that are wholesome, affordable and that my family will actually eat & Love!
Today I’m excited to share a weeks worth of lunch ideas that are healthy + that your kids are sure to love! They’ve been tried and tested by my own kiddos, keep reading to see which lunches were their favorites + find out some of my tips for keeping lunch making simple.
For lunch packing I use these 3 compartment containers from Easy Lunchboxes. I’ve been using these containers for a few years now and absolutely love them! I love that they’re BPA free + dishwasher safe and I love how they keep the lunches neat and fresh, even when they’re tossed around in a backpacks.
Sandwich Kabobs The simplest and healthiest foods seem to look a little extra yummy when they’re prepared in a unique way. This was the first time we tried these sandwich kabobs, a slight variation on the plain old sandwich and my son loved them! Of the five lunches I’m sharing today this was one of the top two favorites. I make a batch ahead then refrigerate in the Easy Lunchbox containers overnight.
Meat, cheese + Veggie Wraps
These wraps were definitely a hit with my family, my son said they were his favorite lunch of the five I’m sharing today! You can easily switch the melon out for another fruit if you prefer. Inside the wraps I did light mayo, ham, goat cheese, grated carrot and lettuce.This makes for a special lunch.
I’d have to say that these homemade pizza buns take the number one spot for my families favorite packed lunch, ever! I love that these pizza buns can be made ahead and frozen which makes for a quick lunch anytime. I need to whip up another batch to have on hand in my freezer really soon! Read how to prepare these pizza buns and print the recipe here.
Nothing too complicated here, just a simple sandwich cut into the shape of a butterfly. This was one of our favorite lunches and it had everything to do with the cute sandwich shape I’m sure! She likes nutella sandwiches, for the other kids I did meat. You can find sandwich cutters all over the place – at your local dollar store or on amazon to name a few.
Tuna Salad + Crackers
This lunch was my preschoolers favorite which surprised me, she really liked dipping her crackers in the tuna. I used these mini dippers containers to include a little bit of tuna salad, along with crackers + cheese. Add a mini spoon for scooping the tuna and making mini cracker + tuna sandwiches or simply use the tuna for dipping. For a little bit of a variety I cut up watermelon into sticks and the kids thought that was fun.
