It’s that time of year again when summer ends, and fall is around the corner. It also means back-to-school lunchtime!
I’m always looking for easy lunches I can make that are fast, easy, and nutritious for my two kids. These lunches will help you not be a slave in the kitchen and are easy.
This Gluten-free kid’s lunch idea is perfect and easy to make. I make this recipe with my kids all the time. Make them in the mini muffin maker to make them small and bite-sized for lunches. Get the recipe here
Cinnamon Raisin Muffins
Another kid’s favourite is cinnamon raisin muffins. This wholesome snack uses Epicure cinnamon.
Lunch Box Squares
Want to sneak some spinach into your diet and your kids? These easy lunch box squares would be great for kids!
Baked Mac and Cheese Bites
My kids love Epicure mac and cheese. This healthy alternative has no added preservatives or additives. Bake them into bite-sized lunch-sized meals using our sheet pan and mini muffin maker. Get the recipe here.
Serve these for lunch or pack them for school. These cookies use Epicure’s protein powder which gives them some protein they need to keep going all day. We use the wow butter for school lunches to keep it peanut free. Get the recipe here.
These perfect portion bliss bars are perfect. A great size for bite-sized meals, portion control, or tiny toddlers or school-aged kids, these easy granola bars will pack easily in school lunches. Get the recipe here.
Many kids I know like chicken fingers, and I like to turn them into chicken bites! Use our crispy, crunchy coating and toss it onto chicken for a leisurely lunch. Get the recipe here.
My kids love things wrapped up in pinwheels and tortillas. This one is easy to make in the morning before school and easy for them to eat independently. Get the recipe here.
Other Back to school lunch ideas
I like to change up what’s in their lunch boxes depending on what’s on sale and what’s seasonal. Here’s a list of some of the fruits, vegetables, and other snacks I pack that aren’t always homemade.
- Mini oranges
- peanut butter sandwiches (wow butter for school)
- grape tomatoes
- pita bread cut up into slices
- snap peas
