  5. Pita with hummus, cherry tomatoes, cucumber slices, blueberries
  6. Cheese and whole grain crackers, 1/2 banana (skin on), baby carrots
  7. Tortilla roll ups with PB&J, apricot, popcorn, cherry tomatoes
  8. Mac & Cheese (in separate thermos), salad with ranch dressing, apple slices
  9. Mini hotdogs with ketchup, whole grain bread, plum (or plums, depends on size), cookie
  10. Cream cheese and jam sandwich, mixed fruit salad, orange cauliflower with ranch dressing, treat

Do you have a favorite lunch to share? Never to early to start collecting ideas for school!


  1. I would never have thought of putting Mac and Cheese in a thermous!

  2. Yum! What great ideas for lunches. And all very healthy!

    Happy TT 🙂

  3. Rollup with tabouleh and salad, I have one that will eat that. The other is a fluff and peanut butter guy. We all enjoy ham and cheese with cut up pickles with both mayo and mustard.

    Cream cheese and Jelly- that brought back memories! Good list. Wish I hadn’t eaten lunch before reading it.

  4. Those are some interesting ideas! I’ll have to try some of them sometime! Happy TT!
