Easy, Healthy Lunch Ideas for Kids
For more healthy eating tips, listen to our podcast episode Healthy Eating & Picky Eaters.
Lunches can quickly become a chore and we seem to constantly find ourselves in a rut. We really make it a priority to pack healthy lunches. The problem we ran into a lot was the variety began to dwindle when we were finding that the fruits or veggies were getting mushy because they would get too warm and then the kids wouldn’t eat them or they apples or pear slices start to brown and 2 of my kids would turn up their noses. So fruits and veggies were coming home uneaten day after day.
So this year, we found these great lunchboxes at Costco with tons of compartments and that come with frozen packets to keep things in the main compartment cool/cold. We’ve been using them for a week since school started and they have been working great! Every day the boxes have been coming home empty, well mostly empty!
Then I created a list of easy and healthy lunch ideas that can be mixed and matched with healthy sides to create tons of different options. Click here to print out this great list and keep it on your refrigerator!

Happy Healthy Lunching!
