Back to School Lunch - Made Easy
School is right around the corner, which means, it's time to start thinking about what to pack your kids for lunch. It could be something you don't mind, but whether you like packing lunches or not, we're here to take all of the thinking out of it (at least for the first week).
5 Easy School Lunches
When making lunch for your kids, you probably focus on it being quick but healthy. It's also important to make sure your kid actually likes the food though. Nothing's worse than seeing a full lunchbox at the end of the day. So here are some ideas for lunch options that are healthy and tasty.
Chicken Ceaser Wraps. You'll need chicken breast (easiest is cooked & frozen), flour tortillas, caesar dressing, lettuce, parmesan cheese, and some pepper. You can also add croutons if you want. Just layer all of the ingredients and roll up the wrap -- that simple. Check out this recipe:
Spinach & Turkey Pinwheels. You'll need sliced turkey, a bunch of spinach, flour tortillas, and cream cheese. Put a thin layer of cream cheese on the wrap, and layer the rest of the ingredients. Roll it up and cut it into bite-size pieces.
Quesadilla. You'll need flour tortillas, cheese, and whatever kind of meat your kid likes. Cook the quesadilla on the stove and cut it into triangles. When packing the lunch, add a side of salsa, guac, or sour cream.
Taco Bowl. If you have some taco meat leftovers--this one is for you. Put the leftover taco meat into a microwavable bowl. And have little containers for all the ingredients that your kid likes -- sour cream, guac, salsa, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, or crushed-up tortilla chips.
Salami Kebabs. You'll need salami, cheese cubes, bread cut into squares, lettuce, and sliced cucumber. Fold and stick all of the ingredients on your kebab stick, and you're good to go!
For any lunch, it's important to include an extra side of fruits or veggies, something to drink, and maybe a little treat.
