Lunchbox Ideas

Gingerbread Energy Bitesโ€˜Tis the season for all things sprinkled with cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves! These no-bake energy bites taste like gingerbread cookies and pumpkin pie had a baby and are great for meal prep and perfect size for lunchboxes.
Cinnamon Churro ChipsThese gluten-free chips require just FOUR ingredients and have all the warm sweet cinnamon flavors of autumn. ๐Ÿ‚ Whatโ€™s great is you can customize to any holiday you want depending on what cookie cutters you use! Ready in less than 15 minutes, these are great for lunchboxes and after school snack.
Fruit LeatherStill have Halloween candy left? Chuck that fruit roll up with all those food dyes and sugars, and make these fruit leathers instead! ๐Ÿ“ The best part?? All you need is some fruit (and think about all the different combinations you can make!) with some lemon juice for pop โœจ. Such a great source of vitamin C, and an easy way to get your kids to have fruit instead of candy.
Waffle SkewersWhat if I told you your kids can make breakfast themselves? My kids are able to wash and cut their own fruit, and use their own creativity and fine motor skills to create their own skewers making meal time easy and fun.
Smore’s Energy BitesThese ๐’๐’-๐’ƒ๐’‚๐’Œ๐’† bliss balls are great for lunchboxes, make ahead snacks, or on-the-go treats. We love storing them in the freezer so theyโ€™re always ready for those moments when my kids are โ€œstaaaarvingโ€ aka 5 min after they had a meal ๐Ÿ™„ . They're everything you want from a fire-pit sโ€™mores but without all the prep, hassle, and smokey scent that just wonโ€™t leave your clothes ๐Ÿซค. These bliss balls are made with whole grain oats and are sweetened naturally by pure maple syrup.
Chocolate Bat PopsWith just ๐“‰๐’ฝ๐“‡๐‘’๐‘’ ingredients, this spooky Halloween treat is easy to make and oh so delicious. We used vegan + gluten-free nut-butter stuffed sandwich cookies, and added mini white chocolate chips to our dye-free chocolate gem eyes for extra spooky night vision.
Ghost Pizza BagelsLetโ€™s make an easy FOUR ingredient Halloween lunch together! These mini pizza bagels are great for school lunchboxes and cannot be easier to make.
Lunchbox Inspiration- Dinosaur Themed Lunchโ˜€๏ธ Although summer is here, itโ€™s never too early to start planning for back to school! โœ๏ธ Sawyer is starting pre-k this year, and that means our little boy will join his big sister with taking lunchboxes to school! ๐Ÿฅณ ๐Ÿ’ก My biggest tip for new lunchbox packers is to ๐’พ๐“ƒ๐’ธ๐“๐“Š๐’น๐‘’ ๐“Ž๐‘œ๐“Š๐“‡ ๐“€๐’พ๐’น๐“ˆ ๐’พ๐“ƒ ๐“‰๐’ฝ๐‘’ ๐“…๐“‡๐‘œ๐’ธ๐‘’๐“ˆ๐“ˆ! Not only will it encourage them to eat their meals better in school, but it will also make your life a bit less hectic too! ๐ŸŽ’ My kids love to get involved by cutting their fruits + veggies with kid safe knives, portioning out foods, and making designs out of their meals. ๐ˆ ๐Ÿ๐ข๐ง๐ ๐ญ๐ก๐ž ๐ค๐ž๐ฒ๐ฌ ๐ญ๐จ ๐ฌ๐ฎ๐œ๐œ๐ž๐ฌ๐ฌ ๐š๐ซ๐ž ๐Ÿ๐ฎ๐ง ๐ญ๐ก๐ž๐ฆ๐ž๐ ๐ฌ๐š๐ง๐๐ฐ๐ข๐œ๐ก/๐ฏ๐ž๐ ๐ ๐ข๐ž/๐œ๐ก๐ž๐ž๐ฌ๐ž/๐Ÿ๐ซ๐ฎ๐ข๐ญ ๐œ๐ฎ๐ญ๐ญ๐ž๐ซ๐ฌ ๐š๐ฌ ๐ฐ๐ž๐ฅ๐ฅ ๐š๐ฌ ๐š ๐ ๐ซ๐ž๐š๐ญ ๐ฅ๐ฎ๐ง๐œ๐ก๐›๐จ๐ฑ ๐ฌ๐ฒ๐ฌ๐ญ๐ž๐ฆ.
Halloween Lunchbox IdeasA collection of some of Liv's favorite vegetarian Halloween lunchboxes! All require easy pantry items and a little bit of creativity! Which one is your favorite?!
Lunchbox Inspiration- โ€œLadybugs on Leavesโ€If you're looking for a vegetarian, vegan, or plant based lunchbox idea for your little ones, we got you covered with this semi-homemade lunch comprised of mini avocado toasts, sweet bell peppers filled with hummus, plant based maple sausages made from millet, lentils, dates, and apples, and a dessert of blueberries and chocolate.
Lunchbox Inspiration- โ€œSpinach Whole Wheat Quesadillasโ€My favorite veggie to sneak into the kids' lunches is spinach because its mild flavor is always masked by whatever it's combined with. My daughter LOVES grilled cheese and cheese quesadillas, so I always put spinach inside to get in extra nutrients. We've also made these quesadillas with scrambled cheesy eggs + spinach, and she always gobbles them up!
