Its that time again… back to school and back to packing lunches. Why not mix it up from the old Monday to Friday sandwich routine? We know that packing the same lunch everyday can get a bit boring. So we’ve put together a list of ten ways to shake up your kids lunchbox and think outside the sandwich! Here’s our list of 10 Mix It Up Back to School Lunches:
Quesadillas are so versatile. It’s a fuss-free lunch that will satisfy even the pickiest little eater. You can add cooked chicken breast for protein and throw some salsa and avocado in the lunchbox to add extra flavour.
You can make these silver dollars on the weekend and save them for lunches during the week. Add hard-boiled eggs, leftover sausages and some fruit to make breakfast for lunch. Try these boiled egg molds for a fun twist on the egg shape!! They’re super cute when done and a hit with the kids.
Be sure to make the grilled cheese with enough time to completely cool before being packed up to avoid having a soggy sandwich. Warm up some tomato soup and transfer it to a thermos for a warm lunch, especially great on those cold winter school days!
These mini baked mac-and-cheese bites are baked not fried. Easier to make and a bit healthier. Yes, your kids are going to love them, but we wouldn’t be surprised if they ended up in grown up lunch boxes too!
Last but not least is a lunch that will make your kid the envy of the lunchroom. Add some ketchup and mustard for dipping and some potato salad on the side for lunch perfection.
So that’s our list. Hope it will help make this school year go by a little easier and a little bit more fun. (for both you and your kiddos!) Check out our DIY Back to School Memory Chalkboard for more back to school fun.
