Easy Back to School Lunch Ideas
Can you believe it’s almost time to head back to school? Seriously…where did the summer go? It’s still plenty warm out, but we’re already planning to head school shopping this week. Little man will be going all day this year, instead of half days and because he’s such a picky eater, we’ve decided to pack his lunch this year – so it’s time to come up with some easy back to school lunch ideas!
I have to get somewhat creative with his food, and I find that he always eats a little better if his plate is “fun”. One of his favorites are the peanut butter and jelly rollups. They’re SO easy to make too, so yay for mom!! He also thinks it’s fun when I make cheese shapes. The extra bonus there, is that mom gets the leftover cheese. HA!
To make the pb&j rollups, all you do is cut the crust off the bread. Then you roll the bread flat with a rolling pin. Add a smear of peanut butter on one side, jelly on the other…and then roll it up. Easy peasy. It’s fun because it’s different…and not your typical PB&J sandwich.
I try to make sure he gets a little bit of everything in his lunch. This fun lunch idea includes the peanut butter and jelly rollups and…
- Pepperidge Farm® Goldfish Crackers
- apple slices
- …add juice or milk.
The boy loves his Pepperidge Farm Goldfish Crackers. We go through bags and bags of these. He loves all the flavors and the different kinds of crackers. I don’t think there’s a variety we haven’t tried.
Wish I Had a Wet Ones® Singles…
I won’t even lie. Kids are gross, and you know it! They wipe their noses, stick things in their mouths, and I know they have bathroom time/washing hands time at school – but bleck. I don’t trust that they get all the yucky grimy grime off their hands before lunchtime. Wet Ones® Singles are a parent’s dream. These fit perfectly inside their lunchboxes and they tear open super easy. They kill 99.9% of germs, so now every kiddo can clean up before they eat their awesome lunch!
