For families that pack their kiddos lunch every day, finding kid-approved recipes can be hard. If you are looking for inspiration, here are 8 Lunch Ideas that products from ALDI (my favorite low-cost grocery store).
Here is a link to the each of the recipes I shared on Kansas City Live today.
Breakfast for Lunch from Parent’s.
You don’t need to always serve a lunch item. Mix it up some days and serve waffles, bagels and cream cheese, or even cold bacon and toast.
Pizza Buns from Simple As That Blog.
I love this recipe because you can make it ahead and freeze each pizza bun for a later lunch. Makes preparing lunch super quick in the morning with an item the kids will definitely eat – because who doesn’t like pizza?
Sandwich Sushi from Glory’s Mischief.
We eat a fair amount of Peanut Butter and Jelly, but this Sandwich Sushi takes that idea and turns it into a fun and easy way for kids to eat their sandwich. Again, you can also make ahead and freeze for quick lunch preparation in the AM.
Make Ahead Smoothies from Food For My Family.
My kids love smoothies, but I’ve never figured out how to pack them. Utilizing mason jars, ice cube trays and more, you can send your kid a smoothie for lunch to break up the routine.
Homemade Trail Mix (and a host of other school lunch ideas) from Mommy’s Kitchen.
My kids like trail mix. I hate the price of pre-made mix (and to be honest some of the sugar and other things that are in it). Solution, create a batch ahead of time, keep it in an air tight container and grab and handful when you needed it.
Bento Box Alternatives from InHabitots.
Bento Boxes are great for providing your kids an array of foods in an eco-free way. But they are so BLASTED expensive. Here are some alternatives that are also eco-friendly, and easier on your budget.
Banana Peanut Butter and Nutella Burritos from Mission.
Peanut Butter, Nutella, and Bananas…enough said.
Hot Lunch Options for School Lunch from Organised Housewife.
Want to provide your kids with a hot lunch every now and again. Here is a list of common and kid-approved items that you can add to a thermos to allow your kids a change of pace (and heat) every now and again.
And here you can find my list of things To Buy At Aldi.
