10 Healthy Packed Lunch Ideas For Back To School – It’s back to school season! Send your kids back to the classroom with these tastes of summer to ease them into the academic year. Here are ten healthy packed lunch ideas for the kids in your life:

PB&J Apple Roll-ups

This take on your average PB&J is much healthier than the old fashioned way – and way more fun to eat! To make, fill a whole wheat tortilla with peanut butter, jelly and a sliced apple, and roll up into a little wrap.

Banana Oatmeal “Cookies”

Your child will be stoked when he/she opens his/her lunch box to find cookies. You’ll be even more stoked knowing what’s in them (banana, oatmeal, vanilla, applesauce and cinnamon).

Tuna Salad Rolls

Make your tuna salad at home and send your child to school with a small container of it and a roll of your choice. Voila – a tuna salad roll that beats any school lunch.

Apples & Peanut Butter

This quick and easy snack is the perfect side to any home-packed lunch.

Cinnamon Apple Chips

Slice some apples, sprinkle them with cinnamon and let them cook a bit in the oven. These homemade apple chips will be frequently requested soon after that.

Peanut Butter & Jelly Sushi Rolls

Roll and cut your child’s peanut butter and jelly sandwich to make it look like sushi. It’s a fun take on a PB&J that will keep them entertained.

Thermos Noodle Soup

Everyone loves a good homemade chicken noodle soup, but it’s not typically something that gets packed in a lunch. Heat it up in the morning and put it in a thermos to keep it nice and warm for lunchtime.

Lunch Box Fondue

Pack your child’s lunch box with a bunch of fruits, veggies and bread and treat them to some cheesy fun-due.

Hummus Pizza

Create your own pizza with hummus and veggies on naan – your child will love the resemblance to pizza and you’ll be even more happy about their healthy meal.

Club Wraps

Cut out the mayo and dense bread of a normal club sandwich and make your own, wrap style.
