Healthy School Lunch Ideas
Don’t be afraid to get creative with the school lunch ideas! I test drove some of the lunches last week on my kids and they were impressed!
My son Hudson is obsessed with sports so I created this sports themed lunch for him. And I found sports shaped pasta at World Market and decided to make an easy pasta salad for his main course.
A simple sharpie drawing on an orange makes the perfect basketball! Because he is a chocoholic I added some cute ball themed chocolates to his lunch.
School Lunch Ideas for Picky Eaters
My daughter, Charley is a girly girl and loves flowers, hearts and pink, of course!
On a recent trip to Daiso I picked up some cute silicone flower cupcake liners and they are the perfect reusable container for fruit salad.
This school lunch idea has a definite garden theme to it with it’s flower cookies, pinwheel sandwiches and bunny crackers.
And to make the strawberry hearts is so much simpler than you can imagine! Just cut the stem off creating a v shape at top and slice!
The peanut butter and jelly sushi rolls are so cute and my kids were obsessed. All it takes is a rolling pin to roll the bread thin and the rest is a piece of cake!
Bite sized food is so much more fun, right? And I also picked up the cutest food picks at Daiso. I swear, everything in that store is makes my creativity go nuts! Um, hello pastel colored sushi grass! I’m pretty sure I’m more excited about this than the kids are, lol!
A mixture of pretzels and cheddar bunnies is an easy snack. And the flower shaped cookies top off the garden theme! Charley loved how creative I got with this school lunch idea. I mean after a long summer of pretzels, hummus and strawberries everyday for lunch she was impressed!
