Snacks for Lunch

What should I make for lunch?
What should I make for my child’s lunch?

Rather than thinking of lunch in terms of one main dish or typical sandwich, look around instead for components you can put together in a fun, delicious, and satisfying combination. This is a great approach for kid and adult lunches alike. It’s like a personal snack board or to use a trendy term, like a “girl dinner.” (Scroll down for more lunch photos.)

It can be any combination of foods you like, but a balanced combo that includes protein, something salty, something crunchy, something sweet, something raw, something creamy, etc. will be the most tasty and nourishing. Small containers, small Stasher silicone bags, 4 oz. mason jars, baby food jars, etc. are super helpful for assembling your lunch, or a bento lunch box with compartments would be great too.

You probably already have numerous things in your fridge and pantry for a decent lunch snack box. But here some of the things we included in our lunch combos (below):

  • deviled eggs
  • pretzels
  • sliced cheese & deli meat
  • crackers
  • sesame sticks
  • cherry tomatoes
  • pickles
  • granola
  • chocolate almonds
  • fresh fruit
  • cookies
  • cream cheese roll-ups
  • chocolate almonds
  • peanut butter
