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.

What I love about today’s recipe is that the slow cooker does all the heavy lifting (cooking) while you go on about your day. Dinner can cook while I run the kids to swim practice, art class, or karate!
As a busy mom to 3 young kids, I appreciate when one of my friends shares with me strategies that work with the kids, especially when it comes to making mealtimes less of a struggle and making sure my kids get enough of the nutrition for the day. This veggie tomato soup is a great way to fill my kids with veggies and giving them something they love at the same time, grilled cheese! These go great in lunchboxes, and it’s easy enough to pack a grilled sandwich without it getting soggy. Click the link and I’ll show you exactly how I learned to do it.
By cutting the grilled cheese into strips and using them as dippers, my kids forget they are eating soup that is loaded with the extra nutrition they need for lunch or dinner.

Butter one side of both bread slices; flip over onto a flat surface. Place cheese on one slice of bread and cover with second slice.
Place cheese sandwich, buttered side down, on a skillet over medium heat. Grill for 2-3 minutes, until cheese has begun to melt and bread is golden brown. Press down with a spatula, flip and grill the second side. Remove from pan onto a cutting board.
Allow grilled sandwich to cool down for five minutes, cut sandwich into narrow strips, and pack in lunch container.
