Easy Lunch Ideas in Easylunchboxes

Somehow week 3 of the beginning of school is the hardest so far. Trying to keep up with everyone's schedule is harder then I thought now that I have 4 kids in 3 different schools (of course all with different school hours). I am still packing lunches every day (unless there is Macaroni and Cheese on the school menu and all four kids are batting their eye lashes to convince me to let them buy). How are you doing with week 3? Leave me a comment at the end of the post. I'd love to know your tips and tricks to stay organized and on top of things or hear what did not go so well this week!

But back to lunch. Here are some lunches from this week. All in our Easylunchboxes for quick assembly line lunch packing:

My kids love the idea of Uncrustables so I often make my own (less expensive and so much healthier!). This lunch is packed for a superhero and contains:
  • a Hulk pocket sandwich
  • cheese crackers
  • strawberries
  • a kid sized cereal bar and a few fruit snacks

Have a Tween at home? They love big lunches and for this Easylunchbox lunch I packed:
  • cheddar crackers
  • grapes 
  • a large pepperoni, spinach grinder
  • a small container with veggie dip 
  • and celery to dip

We all need a pick me up mid-week so I made pudding and let it set right in the Easylunchboxes over night. I sealed the compartment with a small piece of press&seal plastic wrap to prevent leaking and they all came home with huge smiles that afternoon. I also packed:
  • snack mix
  • a big wrap with turkey, cheese and spinach
  • grape tomatoes and
  • a fruit snack 


  1. Hey There! Week three is going great here! This is my first year packing these types of lunches for my three boys and we are all loving it! You have really inspired me to get creative and my main focus is on packing HEALTHY lunches. So far so good, their lunches are the envy of the lunch room and even teachers are sending home compliments! Thanks so much for all your inspiration!

  2. Hi! We are actually in week four of school here and I was just patting myself on the back the other day that my girls haven't bought school lunch yet this year. This is not for lack of trying on their part, mind you. They have asked me several times if they could buy, especially on Wednesdays, which is pizza day. And, to add insult to injury, the other day we were all at the grocery store and they practically got on their knees begging for Lunchables! Kids, I tell ya...
