How to Pack Grilled Sandwiches and Soup for Lunch

If you’ve been wondering how to add variety to your child’s lunch, we’ve got you covered.

Over the past year, I am thankful to have not only learned new delicious recipes but also the basic fundamentals of packing healthy school lunches from MOMables!

No matter what you put on your grilled sandwich or what kind of soup you want to pack, the same principles apply. MOMables teaches us how to keep sandwiches from getting soggy and soups still warm at lunch hour!

Here I’ve packed my Little Miss a grilled cheese sandwich on gluten-free whole-grain bread. MOMables has taught me that when you pack a grilled sandwich, let it cool completely before packing inside your lunch container. This will keep it from getting soggy inside the lunch box!

In the thermos is creamy homemade tomato soup. In the other container, I grilled a cheese sandwich and packed it inside a stainless steel container. My daughter loves dipping her grilled cheese sandwich into her soup. I love it too!

MOMables taught me that while you’re warming your soup, fill your thermos with boiling water. I let mine sit with the lid tight for just a few minutes. This will heat the core of your thermos to help keep the yummy foods you pack inside warmer for a longer period.

After those few minutes, I dump the water and pack the soup inside. Now my kiddo has a delicious school lunch that I know will fill her tummy, so she can have a productive day!
