The kids made it through the second week of school, and I’ve pretty much gotten back into the swing of lunch making. This week it was all about variety. Here are some fun lunch ideas:
Rice Cake Sandwich
Mix things up by using rice cakes instead of bread. Since rice cakes are pretty light, I threw in a hard boiled egg to power the kids through their day.
Sandwich Bites and Bento Containers
Make a regular sandwich, but cut it into smaller pieces. Kids love small stuff. Cute silicone bento containers are perfect for holding little treats.
Roll It Up
Do your kids get bored with sandwiches? I know mine do. Use flatbread or a tortilla to roll up all sorts of yummy stuff. Hummus works great as a glue. So does peanut butter if you want to go sweet.
Add Something with Cute Packaging
I usually try to avoid food that is overly packaged, but some things are just too cute to pass up like GoGo Squeezes. They are kind of like baby food, but my big kids still like them.
Make a Sliders
