Packing a Healthy Lunchbox

Packing a Healthy Lunchbox

With school back in session, parents often have a hard time figuring out what they should pack in school lunches.  They need quick, easy ideas that their kids will actually eat!

I’ve come up with some easy, healthy….and delicious ideas for your child’s lunchbox.

  • Nitrate-free lunch meat; rolled up with sliced vegetables in the center
  • No-grain bread with almond or cashew butter
  • Lettuce wraps with bacon or lunch meat, avocado, and tomato
  • Hard-boiled eggs
  • Salad with chicken strips
  • Leftovers from dinner the night before
  • Cucumber sandwiches (use the cucumber for bread with ham in center)
  • Homemade soup or stew
  • Meatballs
  • Chicken salad (made with homemade mayo)
  • Applesauce
  • Almonds and cashews
  • Sliced vegetables
  • Sliced apples with almond butter
  • Beef jerky (be sure to find one with no-sugar.)
  • Banana-nut cookies
  • strawberries and blueberries
  • Autumn muffins


Two of my favorite lunch boxes are from LunchBots and Planet Lunch Box.I love the compartments.
