If you need to make healthy school lunches for teenage athletes or active kids, you’ve come to the right place; because as a mom to 3 kids, I know what it’s like when an active kid can eat you out of the house.
While school sports are a great way for kids to get involved, socialize, and learn new skills, they also work up an appetite. And we all know that this means that the first words out of their mouth when they get home are… “I’m starving!” Right?
These easy school lunch ideas will keep them energized and ready to score the winning point every day since they have a good balance of protein, carbs, and healthy fats.

The 5 ideas to use Egg Salad include:
Classic Egg Salad Sandwich with Bacon
Use your favorite bread for this sandwich, add some lettuce on each side of the bread, this helps to keep your bread from getting soggy in the lunchbox, and top with two or three scoops of egg salad. If you love bacon like my kids do, adding two slices of bacon makes this sandwich the lunch version of bacon and eggs.
Celery Logs with Egg Salad & Olives
These celery logs are a fun crunchy way to eat egg salad. You can make these as a full lunch or even as a snack after school. Fill some celery sticks with egg salad and place a few sliced olives on top! It’s that simple. Add some fruit and extra veggies on the side and another lunch is complete.
Avocado Stuffed with Egg Salad
This Avocado Stuffed with Egg Salad is one of my husband’s favorite lunches to bring to the office. It is full of protein and healthy fats, which help hold him over through the day. The best part, you can change this one idea up as well, just change the toppings, a little creole seasoning, tomatoes, olives or even some crumbled bacon.
Tomatoes Stuffed with Egg Salad
A lighter version of the above avocado stuffed with egg salad. This is a delicious way to eat egg salad, and for those bigger appetites, you might want to make two.
Egg Salad Wrap
My kids love hand-held foods in their lunchbox and this wrap is a simple way to get my kids to eat more veggies and protein in their school lunch. Use your favorite tortilla and chopped veggies, scoop in some egg salad and you have a delicious and filling meal for lunch.
Instead of trying to send turkey today, tuna tomorrow and ending the week with PB & J because we get lazy, try using one lunch staple a week and use these great tips!
