It’s that time of year again! Summer vacation is officially coming to an end and your little ones will soon be going back to school. Let’s get them really motivated this year with a few fun (and healthy) back to school lunches.
Stacking a few of your little one’s favorites on a stick is a fun way for them to eat and show off what a cool mom (or dad) they have for packing such a fun lunch! The great thing about skewers is you can get really creative and use different ingredients like cheeses, deli meats, greens, and veggies. Quick Tip: Lollipop sticks are the perfect size sticks to use to fit nicely into a lunchbox. Get a full list of skewer ideas here.
If there is one thing that kids typically love to eat, it’s pizza! But you can’t really just toss a slice of pizza in their lunch box (probably not the greatest idea). So why not make them these cheesy pepperoni pizza sticks instead? They are super easy to make and even easier to enjoy! Just try not to eat them all before you put some in their lunch box! Get the full recipe here.
Chicken wraps are healthy and tasty and extremely fun to eat (since they are technically a finger food). And the great thing about these wraps is they are completely customizable! You can even sneak in a few veggies without your little one’s knowing they are there! Try out the full recipe here and get ready for your excited student to talk about how great their lunch was!
Of course, we had to include more finger foods in this list! These grilled cheese roll ups will definitely be a favorite for your back-to-schooler. They require the same ingredients, just a new technique in how you make them! The end results are cheesy grilled cheese sticks that are perfect for those little fingers! Learn exactly how to make them here.
If you want to add something sweet to that little lunchbox, these strawberry oatmeal bars are the perfect treat! They are much healthier than the typical sweet treat but are just as enjoyable! With fresh strawberries, whole oats, and a slightly sweet vanilla drizzle you just can’t go wrong with these bars. Try out the full recipe yourself here.
