Every week I have to make three school lunches for Miss G, and I like to mix it up and make one of those a special themed lunch box. We’ve engaged in a debate about our cute lunch box ideas before and I remain wholly convinced of their ability to make the school day a bit more fun and encourage healthy eating, especially when peers may be bringing less wholesome options.
Making our healthy lunches fun is a creative challenge that I welcome every week, and I love sharing the ideas here for other parents who may be facing a similar challenge.
Most of our easy healthy recipes would easily work in a lunch box, and every Wednesday I host a blog party where you can find even more lunch box ideas (along with other family-friendly foods).
Check out our collection of 35 Healthy Lunch Box Ideas to get you started, or check out any of the lunch box ideas below.
