15 Fun School Lunch Ideas

12:00 AM

Start the new school year with some awesome lunches! These 15 lunch ideas have fun in mind. Some of it is a little out of the ordinary, but definitely worth a try. You'll kids will look forward to lunchtime with these awesome recipes and ideas.



1. Pizza Roll Ups found on Made From Pinterest
These Pizza Roll-Ups are the perfect lunch for those pizza-loving kids. 



My daughter loves grilled cheese and these quick tips on how to pack one is great!



If your child loves smoothies, this is for you! Not only are they healthy, but they are fun to eat!

The post tells you exactly how to pack healthy smoothies in your kids' lunches without making a mess. Love this idea!

This salad is filling and healthy. It's the perfect little side to your child's lunch.

Pasta and Broccoli Salad Cooking the pasta and the broccoli together makes this easy salad even easier.


Some kids may not like cucumbers or cream cheese, but if they do, this is one fun lunch idea!

Cucumber and Cream Cheese Sandwich Rolls (with Lavash Bread)


Who said salad had to be boring? This is an awesome way to serve salad to kids and it leaves little room for a mess.

Chopped Salad in a Cup. Great for summer picnics! I would def. reverse the fork so that the handle is sticking out!


These lovely little apple energy balls can replace the boring granola bar and is healthier than a piece of candy. This is a great make-ahead side.

Apple Almond Energy Bites


Simple wraps cut in half was my daughter's staple lunch last year and will continue to be. This roll has ham (which is not a favorite) but it's easy to substitute turkey.

These little meat and cheese wraps are soooo good!! You should try them out if you haven't before!


These peanut butter and jelly kabobs look so fun and pretty. Can't have peanut butter in your school? Swap out that and the jelly for some lunch meat and cheese and it's still healthy and fun!

Peanut butter and jelly skewers with fresh fruit! PB&J on a stick. Back to School lunch and snack ideas.


 I have been wanting to try doing this for a while and these can be made in advance so your mornings are super easy!

Your kid loves monsters? How awesome would it be to get this in your lunch box?!



My daughter loves Lunchables, but I try not to give them to her often because (to me) it's way too overprocessed and rather expensive. This is a great alternative.



Make your own goldfish crackers! Not only can these be made ahead, but your children will have so much fun helping to make them. You can even make big ones for sandwiches.



 Have some leftover hot dogs and crescent rolls? These are perfect for lunches and to get rid of those leftovers too!



Tackle making your own granola bars and experiment with different kinds. 





 Stay in the loop!
