It's time to send the kids back to school and that brings us to packing their school lunch box with something they actually like and eat. The lunch should be appealing so that when the kids open their lunch box, they feel happy, excited and eat it up. So that brings us to some of the back to school lunch ideas which are compiled below to make it easy for you!

Back To School Lunch Box Ideas

Kids lunch box should be divided to accommodate 3 categories: Main Course, Fruits / Veggies, and Snacks. This way, you can provide all the required nourishment and also make their lunch box colorful, creative and tasty. Let's take a look at what you can include in each category.

Main Course

Back To School Lunch

Your child may be the pickiest eater, so it is always suggested to make the main course as per their liking.
Wraps and sandwiches are the favorites of most kids. Turkey cheese wrap or a Tuna sandwich can be a great source of protein. Mac & cheese, chicken nuggets, chicken skewers, hard boiled eggs, quesadillas, pasta, bagel dogs, burritos, cheese and crackers etc. are some other options for the main course. You can even pack pizza for their lunch box.
Whatever you pack, see to it that you and your kids agree on it.


This definitely is the favorite and first-to-eat item for kids in their lunch box. Most of the snacks are readily available and are loaded with sufficient nutrition for the kids to grow up in a healthy way. Granola bar, hummus, yogurt, popcorn, nuts, craisins, pretzels, rice crackers, trail mix etc. would be a perfect addition to the main course in their school lunch box.
Talking of snacks, Yoplait Multipacks are now available in new packaging and are perfect for back to school and kids' lunches. The new design includes a box with an open top to easily see when you need to stock up again and shows off which flavors are left in the box. It makes it so easy to stack the yogurt in the refrigerator and saves a lot of space. These are made with natural colors, flavors, and sweeteners. You can never beat an original, especially when it's as smooth, creamy and delicious as Yoplait.

Fruits and vegetables are a wonderful way to provide nutrition to the kids and it benefits them in many ways. It is important to teach the kids the importance of fruits and veggies so that we can include them in their diet.
Fruits such as bananas, peaches, berries, grapes, nectarines, melon, plums, oranges, avocado etc. can be added to their lunch box. You can cut the fruits into creative shapes which will excite the kids or you can give them a whole fruit as it is.
Coming to the vegetables, you can add raw cut veggies like cucumbers, carrots, cherry tomatoes, broccoli, snap peas, coleslaw etc. Veggies go great with a dip, so make sure you provide a dip of your kids choice in the lunch box.

Let your kids enjoy their food with these creative lunch options. Happy Back To School!
