Kids School Lunch Ideas

With back-to-school just around the corner, now is a great time to start thinking about healthy, creative lunches that your kids will love. And since not every kid loves pb&j or ham and cheese (and even those that do like to switch it up occasionally), here are some ideas for kid-friendly lunches – that aren’t sandwiches!

Main Event

Pizza Roll Ups

These kid-pleasers are super easy to prepare, and require as few as three ingredients! Fill them with your kids’ favorite pizza toppings – or sneak in some extra veggies.

DIY Pizzables

Or, let your kids assemble their own pizza. Flatbread, sauce, cheese, and whatever else your kids like!

Taco Bowls

These surprisingly easy lunches are a lunch your kid will be begging you to keep making. And they’re easy to pack ahead of time and use all week.


There are so many options and combinations available here! These turkey pesto pinwheels are a delicious options, but so are these, these and these. And they’ll take no time at all to prepare.



DIY Trail Mix

A great snack to make with your kids. Let them mix in their favorite treats and snacks, like goldfish or M&Ms, with some of the healthy options you want for them, like nuts and dried fruits.

Banana Oatmeal Sponge Cookies

These healthy, fiber-filled treats will help fill them up while tricking them into thinking it’s dessert.

Frozen Fruit Cups

These are great for using and preserving whatever fruit you have in the house, and they’ll have less sugar than the packaged variety – and can be tailored to your kids’ preferences.

Ants on a Log

This classic is a classic for a reason. Use peanut butter or cream cheese, and get your kids to eat a balanced snack you’ll both love!

Packing school lunches can feel daunting, and it’s easy to get stuck in a boring routine. These creative options can be made in advance, or quickly thrown together in the morning.
