25 Home Lunch Ideas That Kids Will Actually Eat

This year was my first time having a child in school all day! That means, I am now making home lunches all the time! My daughter doesn't love sandwiches so I have come up with a little list of things that she will actually eat!
I also found these amazing Bento Boxes. I hadn't seen them before this year, but now I see them everywhere. We bought a few and it makes lunch so much easier!
You can buy 3 of the 3 compartment lunch boxes HERE for only $13.99.

25 Home Lunch Ideas 

(That kids will actually eat)
Black Bean and Cheese Tortilla Wraps

Peanut Butter and Bananas rolled in an tortilla

Tuna Pita Sandwich

Mini Pizzas made on English Muffins (Make them the night before and freeze any extras for another day)

French Toast Sticks dipped in maple syrup

BBQ Chicken Sandwich. Make this recipe and spit it up into single servings, put them in baggies then freeze them. The night before, stick it in the refrigerator then make the sandwich in the morning.

PB&J (if you are in a huge hurry, I have also bought the Smuckers Uncrustables)

Bagel and Cream Cheese

Turkey Roll-Ups (turkey, cheese, and pickles rolled up and pinned with a toothpick)

Grilled Cheese Sticks, (It is a grilled cheese sandwich cut into strips- they are just easier to eat!)

Leftover Pizza (cut and put in individual baggies and stick them in the freezer)

 Make a homemade lunchable. (crackers, cheese slices, and turkey slices)

Fun Side Dishes:

Cheese sticks

Hard Boiled Eggs

Fresh Fruit (blueberries and strawberries are my daughters favorites)

Carrots and celery with ranch in a small container

Gogurts (freeze them then stick them in the lunch and they will thaw just enough that your kids can eat them at school)

Applesauce in a container (don't forget a spoon)


Raisins or Craisins


Kids Favorite Desserts (that aren't hard to make):
(make the batch and freeze them!)

Oatmeal Pumpkin Cookies

Sugar Cookie Bars

Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Brownie Bars

Don't forget the Ice Packs (The thin ones are my favorite! You can find HERE)
