One Simple Lunch Plan, Unlimited Kid Lunch Ideas Year Round!
Here at MOMables, we know lunch doesn’t end when the school year does. For many of us, we’re still packing for day care, work, and even camps.
That’s why we’ve also put together one plan that offers vegetarian, gluten-free, and nut-free options (where applicable) for your family’s dietary needs. Offering you easy lunch ideas that are simple to prepare and perfect for the entire family.
When kids are at camp during the day, they want lunches that will fuel them for their activity-filled day. MOMables has you covered! I use my MOMables menu plan regularly. Here are just some of the delicious dishes my own daughter loves and enjoys thanks to MOMables!
Get out of the PB&J rut. Use your MOMables Menu plans, and give them something great for camp!
Making mini quiches are a great non-sandwich lunch choice. Bite-size, and the filling possibilities are endless. The same goes with making a frittata, also pictured above. Not a traditional lunch item, but a way to bring variety to lunch.
Looking for a new take on a sandwich? Try the MOMables Grilled Frenchman. Ham, Brie (or preferred cheese), and a little mayo, and grill between bread slices or toast in the toaster oven until the cheese is melty. Yummy!
You can never go wrong with bacon. I’m quite sure my daughter will eat anything if bacon is involved. ;) Save a slice or two from breakfast for lunches. Add it to make a fabulous club sandwich to kick their normal turkey sammie up a notch!
Another fun idea? Breakfast for Lunch. Another favorite in our house. Pack up some french toast, a mini dipper of syrup for dipping, add some fruit, and other breakfasty sides for a filling meal.
We also love to serve Chicken Salad the same way. Pack up some crackers, and put the chicken salad in a silicone cup or small compartment of your EasyLunchBoxes container. Serve with fruit and vegetable of choice.
A great summer option is to make a batch of Cauliflower Crunch Salad over the weekend, and pack up the yummy leftovers for lunch during the week. I live by the MOMables philosophy “Cook Once, Eat Twice!” It really makes lunch packing so simple.
Speaking of leftovers, another fun way to use leftovers is Pizza Skewers! Take your leftover pizza slices, cut them up, and put them on picks or recycled Starbucks stir sticks.
One of my favorite non-bread sandwiches to make are Apple-wiches. We use sunflower seed spread, allergen-free granola, and raisins in the middle. Yum! We love the crunchiness. It tastes like dessert for lunch!
Lunch packing doesn’t have to be complicated. Just because it’s summer doesn’t mean you have to do it alone. MOMables is here to help all year long. For just $6 per month, we can take the stress out of your mornings and have you rockin’ the lunch box for your entire family! If you want to see a sample plan, sign up for our newsletter below.
