Back To School Lunch Inspo!

Although this back to school year is completely different than anything we’ve ever experienced before in our life times, I still want to instill a sense of normalcy for my kiddies when it comes time for back to learning! Whether my kids are home or back in school, I still plan to pack their lunchboxes each day, as this will probably be the only thing that will be the same when it comes time for school! I’ve packed quite a number of lunches in my day and want to highlight some of my kids most favorites!

I just discovered Strong Roots brand this summer, and I love all of their veggie based options that can easily be warmed up in a toaster or oven before heading off to school. There spinach bites, or quinoa burgers will definitely make the perfect lunchbox combo!

Ever since Siella and I went to London, she begs for tea sandwiches. Siella’s Cucumber and Vegan Cream Cheese Sammy is an absolutely hit, and we love this vegan Kite Hill everything cream cream cheese, but feel free to use your favorite brand.

Gemma’s all about turkey and cheese rolls up! I usually pair them with a fruit, veggies, and granola bars! Another option on constant rotation for her are these celery sticks with nut butter, and topped with raisins. Adapted this one from Weelicious!

Make their lunches fun by cutting their sandwiches into fun shapes, sticking cute little (non sharp!) toothpicks in their sandwiches or making fun fruit kabobs!

Soups and chili’s are another fan favorite with my kids, I usually put them in these containers that I know are spill proof! My black bean soup can be found here!

Sample lunches for the week:


Monday: Hummus, Veggies on pita. 

Tuesday: Turkey, Cheese, Avocado Roll Ups 

Wednesday: Nut Butter, Banana, Chia Seeds rolled up like sushi rolls

Thursday: Vegan Cream Cheese and Cucumber Tea Sandwich

Friday: Black Bean Soup

  1. So awesome! Those are all wonderful ides for lunches. I remember my mom packing my lunch when I was young. It was usually a ham and cheese sandwich or peanut butter and jelly haha. I was always jealous of the kids that had lunchables.

  2. Wow! I wish my lunches looked like this when I was at school! They all look delicious and a lot of great ideas to have different lunches, also those lunch boxes are so great and help to keep your lunch organize. Definitely keeping this in mind for when I have kids

  3. I love the sushi roll ups and hummus/pita combo. I’ve been needing some inspo for lunches when the kids go back to school next week!
