Back to school for kids is coming up very quickly.  bye Bye to the summer schedule and hello to the routine of school! Here is a list of 10 easy kids lunch ideas.  These lunch ideas are super easy, take less than 15min to prepare and our healthy lunches for kids.

Easy Kids Lunch Ideas:

1. Sandwiches- A foundation of every kids lunch.  You can have veggie sandwiches with turkey, a little mayonnaise ( we recommend vegananies) and a healthy bread.

2. Another favorite is Peanut butter and Jelly. Since we avoid Tree nuts we often recommend sunbutter and jelly. Our favorite jelly is either homemade ( yes you can make jelly) or an organic local brand. There are lots of craftsman who make their own jelly, shop your local farmers market for a source.

3. Turkey roll ups- for those kids that either don’t like bread or are on a gluten free-dairy free diet we take hormel’s turkey ( gluten & dairy free) and slap on 1tsp of veganiese and roll them up like little cigars( not advocating smoking).  I put about 7 in the lunch box for my 5 year old.

4. Leftover Spagettihi- super easy and super delicious!

5. Mac n’Cheese- We make ours with gluten free noodles and Daiya Cheese.  I can’t rave enough about Daiya cheese, thank you thank Daiya cheese people!

6.  Grilled Cheese Sandwich- Again with a gluten free or ezekial bread and daiya cheddar cheese! Yummy!

7. Hamburgers- We make ours with turkey meat. A back of kettle chips, some apple slices and water!

8. Hot dogs no bun, carrot sticks, grapes and water.

9.  Black bean burger- I make these and freeze them a head of time.  I put cilantro, onions and garlic in my blender and blend them for 20 secs so that they are mixed but not too smooth. I coat them with gluten free dairy free bread crumbs, fry them in light canola or olive oil for about 4 min on each size on medium. Let them cool and freeze them.

10.  Tortilla roll ups. Similar to the turkey roll ups, you take two corn or flour tortillas fill them with daiya cheese and melt in the oven on broil for a minute. then cut into 2 inch strips and roll them up into cigar shapes.  Can serve with salsa and corn chips and orange slices.

And there you have easy, kid lunch ideas that our healthy and good for kids with food allergies or sensitivites. Healthy lunches for kids are important! Get back to school for the kids right this year! Good luck!
