Sweet Potato Chili
Give them something warm , healthy and nourishing for their lunch time break! Some schools offer microwaves for reheating,
but it’s a great idea to use an insulated thermos to keep it the perfect temperature for a tummy warming lunch!

Give a new twist to your egg salad dish!!! I’m going to keep the secret
ingredient to myself, but it’s worth it for the taste!! You could pack the egg salad in a cooled thermos
to keep all the egg ingredients fresh, and then let your child assemble the sandwich! Fun!

Ham and pineapple on a bun for the win!! This is another sandwich idea that I would keep the
pineapple separate from the bun and let my kids assemble their own sandwich at the time. It gives them
participation in their own lunch, and the pineapple won’t make the bun soggy!

Grilled Cheese Kabobs
These kabobs not only look nice, but they definitely tastes good too!!! I seriously wish my mom had made
these fun sort of lunches! It would have been perfect, and don’t forget to add a packet of
ketchup for dipping!

A healthy treat for your active kids – This is another fun lunch recipe idea that would
be awesome with ketchup to dip!
You know my love of the idea of using Thermoses for lunches. I grew up that way
and it’s the perfect solution to warm lunches in schools that don’t have other
alternatives to warm lunches! Not to mention – PASTA FOR LUNCH, YUM!
Grilled Pepperoni and Cheese Flatbread
A flatbread recipe not only for kids but also for adults!!! It requires only a small preparation time and what kid
doesn’t like pizza for lunch!!!

Lime Chicken Pasta Salad
A combination of citrus and tangy tastes into a salad recipe!!! Keeping the chicken packed
separate from the lettuce portion until their lunch time will help keep the lettuce fresh and crisp.
What a yummy idea for a kid’s lunch!! (and an adult’s lunch as well!)

lunch to bring to school. Their friends would be so envious!!!
