School Lunch Ideas

This summer, we had a fun program at church and the kids all brought their lunch. Do you know what they brought? Lunchables, every single one of them. If you aren't familiar with what that is, they are prepared lunches that are mainly variations on cheese and crackers. In honor of all those Lunchables, I'm sharing 20 school lunch ideas that don't include a sandwich nor any nuts.



Homemade Lunchables:


English Muffin Pizza, toast the muffin before hand send with cheese, pepperoni, and sauce
Cheese and crackers with pepperoni or meat of choice
Nachos, chips and queso dip, side of salsa

Sandwich alternatives:


Stuffed pita, especially good with tuna or egg salad
Lettuce wraps, great with chicken salad or any luncheon meat
Tortilla salad wrap, place salad and meat in tortilla and roll with it
Meat roll ups. Roll luncheon meat around cream cheese and pickle or a cheese stick

Finger Food:


Hummus and veggies
Chips and dip
Pickle platter, send olives, pickles, various pickled veg with a side of cheese

Breakfast for Lunch:


Boiled eggs and yogurt parfait
Oatmeal with berries
Quiche

Heat it Up:


Beanie weanies
Soup
Hot dogs and chips. Put dogs in hot water and send with bun and toppings

Out of the Ordinary:


Salad in a jar
Beef jerky, dried fruit, pumpkin or sunflower seeds
Kabobs with lunch meat and cheese. The deli counter can do thick cuts, serve with fruit kabobs
Sushi
