Easy And Balanced Back To School Lunches

The end of summer always sneaks up on you. One day you are laying out by the pool with the kiddos, sending them off to art camp, and enjoying your family vacation at the beach. The next, you are shopping for a fresh backpack, supplies, and lunchbox. If your child isn’t a fan of school lunches and you plan to pack them a bite, the sandwich and chips combo was so last year. Use these easy and balanced back-to-school lunch ideas when you’re in a pinch!

Turkey and Cheese Rolls Up

It’s a safe bet to say your little one loves turkey and cheese. Leave off unneeded condiments like mustard or mayonnaise – chances are your child is picky and the extra sauce will make their roll-ups soggy. Pair with almonds, raw veggies like bell pepper, broccoli, carrots, and crackers. And don’t forget a sweet treat – a cookie, small piece of candy, or juice is a special mid-day school treat!

Egg Salad

If your kiddo always asks for eggs for breakfast, they’ll be delighted to open up their lunchbox to this egg salad, including avocado, egg, Greek yogurt, Dijon mustard, salt, and pepper. Put it on a sandwich, celery sticks, wrap, or crackers, and pair with sides like corn on the cob, raw veggies, and apple slices.

DIY Pizza

After whipping up this lunch, you’ll want a piz-of-it too! Put pizza sauce, pepperonis, and cheese on a tortilla and heat it in a pan, air fryer, or oven. Serve with carrots and ranch for dipping and plenty of fruit for a delicious and colorful meal that only takes a few minutes to throw together.
