Healthy lunchbox ideas for school

Who doesn’t love a BLT, right? Bring it to the next level with some super simple avocado mayo. These are perfect for school lunches. But don’t worry, we won’t judge you if you pack this one for yourself too. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I’m still savoring summer, but, it IS that time of year… back to school. Time for new routines, new clothes, new supplies, and packing lunches. So, I’m curious, how do you feel about packing lunches?

So many people I talk to just dread this task. It feels mundane and habitual. And it’s hard to come up with healthy lunchbox ideas for school. I actually don’t dread this task, but that’s simply because I make my kids do it. Yup, I’m a delegator. ๐Ÿ˜€

Actually, when they are in kindergarten, I teach them how to pack a healthy lunch. They love having some control in this area and think it’s fun to pack their lunches. All I do is provide the healthy options and possibly some ideas and they’re on their way. It’s a win-win. ‘Cause, like many of you, it’s not my favorite thing to do.

This season, I’m teaming up with Produce For Kids to raise money for Feeding America® programs that benefit families and children.

You can add this Avocado BLT wrap to your repertoire. I like to use a multi grain tortilla or a spinach tortilla for some extra benefits.

Pair it with grapes, kiwi, veggies and dip. You gotta love the dip, right? There was a season that my kids went through that as long as it had dip on it, it was a winner! And check out freeze dried fruits from Crispy Green. I love them because they are all natural, no preservatives, no added sugar, and of course delicious.

Tips for packing healthy lunches

  • Get the kids involved ~ It’s proven that when kids are involved in preparing their meals they are much more apt to eat them. I recommend teaching them how to pack their own.
  • Provide healthy options~ fresh fruit, veggies & dip, cheese. They can’t eat junk food if you don’t buy it. ๐Ÿ˜‰
  • Incorporate all food groups ~ proteins, grains, dairy, fruits and vegetables.
  • Set up lunch stations~ whether you pull it all out and set it on the counter when it’s time to make lunch, or you keep bins in the fridge/pantry, having some specific foods that are set up for lunch will make it easy and convenient to pack healthy lunches.
  • Make lunches the night before~ you’ll make better choices when you’re not in a rush.
