4 Healthy School Lunch Box Ideas

Healthy Lunch Box Ideas on SixSistersStuff

It’s crazy to think that Back to School season has arrived! Where has summer gone??

My kids love to take their lunch to school, so this year I wanted to be prepared with some options besides just a peanut butter and jam sandwich. I teamed up with Kroger to share with you some ideas to make packing a healthy lunch easy and fun!

Lunch #1:

Lunch 1 - Turkey Hummus Wraps
This lunch was inspired by the fact that my kids love finger foods. The wraps are simple to make – take a whole wheat tortilla and spread your favorite hummus on top, then add sliced turkey and red pepper. Roll it all up and cut it into slices (or you can keep it rolled up like a burrito – it’s totally up to you). I added in some watermelon (the Kroger store by my house sells watermelon that has already been pre-cut, which makes me life so much easier!), cucumber slices, and air-popped popcorn that has been lightly salted (another item that you can pick up from your Kroger store).


Lunch #2:

Lunch 4 - Cheese Tortellini

At the deli of my local Kroger store, they sell fresh cheese tortellini, so I cooked it on the stove top and added in some pasta sauce. Serve with strawberries, broccoli, and string cheese and you have a lunch that any kid is going to love (who doesn’t love pasta??)! My kids like to eat this cold, so I just put it in their insulated lunch box with an ice pack and it stays good until lunch!

Lunch #3:

Lunch 3 - Lunchable

My kids loved pre-packaged ham, cheese, and crackers, but I sometimes worry about all the extra preservatives in them – so we decided to make our own! I used Triscuit crackers, slices of cheddar cheese, and slices of honey ham from the deli at my Kroger store (the Boar’s Head honey ham is the best!). I added blackberries and cherry tomatoes as the side dishes and this lunch was good to go!

Lunch #4:

Lunch 2 - Hard Boiled Eggs
My kids love hard boiled eggs, so I used that as the star of the show in this lunch! For side dishes, I threw in almonds, red grapes, sugar snap peas, and cottage cheese. This is a lunch that I would love as an adult!

Clicklist Kroger

And one last life hack that every person needs to know about: CLICKLIST. This service has literally changed my life! Grocery shopping with 4 kids isn’t my favorite thing to do, so I will jump on my app on my phone, put in my whole shopping list, and pick it up THE SAME DAY. We don’t even have to get out of the car! Am I wearing pajama pants? No one will ever know because I get to stay in my seat! ClickList is a mom’s best friend. 🙂

  1. Great ideas!! my only concern for you all sending lunches to schools is the almonds because so many schools have banned NUTS of any kind because of allergies so you may want to check school policies before sending any kind of nuts for unwanted notes to parents...
