Take back your kids school lunch with these fun and healthy lunch ideas.

Last year was my son’s first year of pre-school and I dropped the ball when it came to his school lunch. Being that school is only 2 hours, his school lunch is a light snack, but with my picky eater that meant applesauce and granola bars. This year, I’m vowing to guide my son to eating healthier but making lunch fun.

Thinking back to when I was a kid, I loved veggies and dip in my lunch. Same with cut up meat and cheese, so I’m going to start out with that and see if all it takes for my son to eat his vegetables is some dip (somehow, I’m doubtful).

School Lunch Ideas:

Dinosaur Sandwich Take back your kids school lunch with these fun and healthy lunch ideas.

I’ll be the first to admit that this dino-sandwich is not the prettiest thing I have created but my son loved it! He was eager to get involved in preparing his lunch and had a lot of fun cutting out t-rex shapes. I usually have to fight him to eat a sandwich (especially one with meat in it) but he gobbled this right up.

Egg Mice

Healthy toddler snack idea: eggs in shape of mice. Make sure to serve these hungry mice with cheese. Picky eater approved!

Another fun idea is to make a healthy snack, such as hard boiled eggs, and make animals with them. For this hungry mouse snack, I cut a hard boiled egg in half and used raisins for the nose and eyes, for the ears I used sliced almonds. Serve with cheese.
