Five Back to School Lunch Box Ideas

Jun 14, 2017 | food, Parenthood & Family | 21 comments

Need healthy lunch box ideas for your kids? Here are some easy and yummy recipes!

Food planning is one of the most challenging tasks for moms, especially now that the kids are going back to school. Most of the kids I know are picky eaters who prefer sweets and junk food. Even my two-year-old son sometimes chooses chocolates over a rice meal. This saddens me as a parent. Now that he will start school this June, I need to prepare something enjoyable and healthy at the same time.

So I did a little research and listed lunch box ideas to help other mommies on this food gameplan! Also, you may find out the latest vacuum sealer reviews at vacuummania and keep the stored food germ-free and fresh for longer time.

Chicken Fajitas (Source:
This recipe is high in Vitamin A that helps maintain healthy vision and skin. It is also a source of iron that is needed for red blood cell formation. I love that this is very easy to prepare yet full of nutrients to help our kid’s energy last throughout the day. You can get the recipe here.
Pizza Roll Ups (Source:
If you are a mom who loves to bake, why not make a homemade pizza! Not just your little one will enjoy but the whole family as well! Check the recipe here. Looking at the picture makes me want a pizza delivery! Lols.

Barbecue Chicken Fried Rice (Source:

You will never go wrong with this because kids love barbecue! Get the recipe here.

Kids love variety. According to Jackie Newgent, RDN, “To carry them well throughout the day, children need a little of everything, including protein for their muscles, carbohydrates for energy and their brain, as well as various nutrients that each provides unique functions.”

Mac & Cheese (Source:

Does your kid love pasta? Try this Mac & Cheese and add broccoli or cauliflower in with the pasta. Pair it with your kid’s favorite drink so he/she will enjoy the meal even more.

Any baon / lunch box ideas in mind? I would love to hear it!
Hope you find this post helpful!

    Preparing food for our kids is never easy. It has to taste delicious. It has to look good and appealing to their eyes. It has to be nutritious. Ang daming considerations hahaha 😀

    Oh my all of these lunch boxes look so good. Certainly great ideas for the future- cheers to the share!

    I think the statement "Kids love variety" does not apply to my son. hehehe! My son likes to eat his usual baon, he can eat sandwich (with chocolate spread or peanut butter) everyday in school. Ako na nagsasawa sa gusto niya na baon but it made my life easier kasi wala kahirap-hirap sa pagprepare.

  8. Emily

    These are great ideas for working people as well, if they pack their lunch. I am not such a person as I work from home.

    Indeed a nice way to encourage our kids to study more and enjoy school. I too would love to open my lunch box and see those gorgeous meals prepared by my mom if only I am still studying.

  15. Janice Lim

    I no longer need to pack kiddie lunch boxes for school. But these ideas are also great even for snacking at home. They look fun to eat and healthy as well.

  16. Miera Nadhirah Tan

    Its very important post . I realize the kids love to grab food or snack outside the school . Some of them is unhealthy food like junk food or sweet . This would be make the parents stress . Must should be creative to make the kid love the home food than outside.

    This idea is brilliant . Thanks for sharing

    How I wish my kids would eat these foods. They're the hardest to feed! On the other hand, I always put variety in their snacks since there are instances when they don't eat their food pag walang option. I wanna make sure they will get all the nutrition and energy they need for the day 🙂
