Q&A: 6 Back-to-School Lunch Ideas


PB&J. Cheese stick. Yogurt. – (Snore!) – Does your inner chef have a fresh, creative idea to share for our back-to-school, lunch toting kids?

  • Leslie Lynn suggests, “Hummus and carrots, yum! Seaweed strips! Homemade granola bars!”
  • Hannah Monroe Litchfield suggests, “My kids love tortillas with just about anything rolled inside. Cream cheese and ham, hummus and lettuce, turkey and cheese, or Yes, even PB&J.”
  • Jessica Grant suggests, “Vegetarian sushi rolls are a big hit here!”
  • Beth Caissie suggests, “Peach leather made from Clarkdale Farm peaches the 1st day of school.”
  • Lauren Abend suggests, “Crunchy kale.”
  • Amy Kane-Coyne suggests, “Radiatori pasta tossed with (locally made) Ooma Tesaro Mariara (had to give a shout out–especially since Jackson–my picky eater–who does not like tomatoes–loves the Oomas).

  1. Mini pitas stuffed with tuna salad (chunk light line-caught tuna, Drew’s Smoked Tomato dressing, chopped crunchy veg. like snap peas from the garden), or hummus and olive tapenade with sliced cherry tomatoes. A sunflower butter and banana sandwich on whole grain bread. My sons also enjoy cooked carrot sticks and lots of interesting fresh fruit.
