Now that the kiddos are headed back to school, many of us are in major need of some school lunch ideas. Here are some of my elementary schooler’s favorite lunches that are quick, easy, and healthy too!
Back to School Lunch Ideas
When it comes to packing lunches, I’m a huge fan of bento boxes.
They’re a great way to keep wet and dry foods separate (no soggy food here!) and also great for kids who don’t want all their foods to touch.
For my daughter’s lunches I love to use a LunchBots Cinco bento box (affiliate link) — they’re the BEST! I have three I alternate between. They wash up great in the dishwasher and fit perfectly in her lunch box.
Since we’re also allowed to pack a mid-day snack for the kiddos, I’ll use either a small snack-sized bento box or a reusable Stasher Bag (affiliate) which are also dishwasher safe and oh so easy to clean!
Let’s get our lunch on!
This one actually comes with it’s own handy dandy recipe!
My Veggie Cream Cheese Tortilla Roll-Ups are a must-make and can even be meal prepped in advance to make weekday mornings run oh so smoothly. Love them so!
