100 Kids Healthy Lunch Ideas

Ever feel like after a few weeks into the school year, suddenly your enthusiasm for making lunches wanes?  I start off, full of good intentions and enthusiasm and after a week or two I am back to vegemite sandwiches and a yoghurt.  With two lunches to make this year, and a picky eater, I decided to make a list of ideas for their bento style lunch boxes, to offer variety, inspire me and to hopefully introduce some new items into their food repotoire!

I have written before about how I plan the kids lunches.  Using our lunchbox planner, I I make sure they have a variety of Protein, Calcium, Grains and Fruit and Veg.  I have used this same format to record my ideas in a table.  

Every school has it’s own food requirements and restrictions especially when it comes to nuts, eggs and dairy so check your schools handbook before packing lunch.

 I am printing this out, laminating it and attaching it to the inside of my pantry.

You could even use a whiteboard marker to cross of foods they have had that week or to highlight some form each list that you know will be a winner!

  1. Great easy ideas there Larissa. I usually pack the usual sandwich, fruit and crackers with twiggy sticks. But sometimes I give them rice salad made from Uncle Ben’s rice! So quick and easy.

  2. Such an awesome list, will come in very handy – thanks so much for sharing.

  3. What a fabulous idea!!! Perfect for inside the pantry cupboard door!

  4. This is a great idea. But when I click on the link to download a printable version the link doesn’t work.

  5. The vents are not just a gimmick; they actually keep the fogging to a minimum.

  6. The USADA issued a 200 page report on Oct.

  7. I simply want to tell you that I’m new to blogs and seriously savored your blog. More than likely I’m going to bookmark your blog post . You certainly have superb stories. Regards for revealing your web-site.
