Are you looking for more grain-free school lunch ideas your kids will love? I’ve got you covered in this post.
Believe it or not, everything you see in this photo is grain-free! Many of these ideas come from our MOMables Grain-Free Meal Plan. Wait, what? A meal plan for busy families that is kid-friendly and grain-free? Yes, you read it right.
As someone who packs five lunches, two breakfasts, and three snacks per day in a “to-go” container, I’ve gotten really good at the “how-to.” What can be difficult is to pack a regular lunch, two grain-free, one gluten-free, one dairy-free—you get the idea. This year, I am exclusively using the grain-free meal plan for my whole family. It’s the easiest solution, and with some of the awesome recipes, no one misses sandwiches either!

Are your children full after eating these? How old are they? Does it stick with them or are they hungry again in an hour? I need to prepare lunches for my children this coming August and want to start to get them having a “taste” for grain free and dairy free. My daughter likes meats, my son not so much. And my daughter hates all fruit and un cooked vegetables. She eats soups though.
Hi Deborah! My kids are full if I give them enough. It’s all about trial and error, and finding what works for your own kids. A good option to feed both of them might be a vegetarian thermos soup (since your son doesn’t like meat) like this Enchilada Soup with a hard-boiled egg and some roasted vegetables on the side. If you look around our site and LauraFuentes.com, you’ll definitely be able to find some recipes they’ll both love. Best of luck!
