5 Healthy Lunches You Can Pack For Your Kids in Mere Minutes

Few things make parents feel as defeated as opening up their kids’ lunchboxes at the end of the day and finding their carefully packed healthy lunch untouched. I know, because I’ve done it too many times! But with a little creativity, even if you’re short on time, you can turn an otherwise mundane bagged lunch into something your kids can’t wait to eat.

Kids are extremely visual, so the key is coming up with cute, easy — emphasis on easy — ways to serve healthy meals that won’t add time to your already-crazy morning routine. Here, five fun ways to serve up a healthy lunch that your kids will want to eat!

Kid Pocket

What kid doesn’t like pizza for lunch? While a slice of pizza doesn’t transfer well to school, a handheld pizza pocket does. Get the kids involved on a Sunday night and make a bunch. We used prepared pizza dough and then had the kids add their favorite fillings — ham and cheese, mozzarella, chicken and pesto, whatever they like. Then we baked them and froze them. In the morning, just heat one up in the toaster oven, pack it in an insulated container, and it will be warm for lunch! Add in some carrots already dipped in ranch (or their favorite) dressing and a banana with a message, pack it in a fun lunchbox — we used Pottery Barn Kids’ Marvel Classic Lunch Bag ($25) — and you’ve got yourself a superlunch!
