School And Daycare Lunches, Take 3 (10 lunches)

Round three of school and daycare lunches!! These are photos of lunches that we made during the 2012-2013 school year for our three kids. They were in 4th grade, 2nd grade and daycare. Sometimes leftovers, sometimes sandwiches, sometimes thrown together, sometimes thoughtfully put together… always with an effort to keep them healthful.

Check here for more school lunch photos and ideas.

1. First day of school lunch. Romaine with cucumbers, tomatoes, egg whites, shredded mozzarella, chick peas and cubed grilled chicken. Dressing of choice. Yogurt covered raisins on the side.

2. Tomato soup, grilled cheese & cucumbers

The grilled cheese comes closer to room temperature by the time the kids eat it, but the heat from the soup container helps to keep it warm.

3. Whole wheat with turkey and pesto with grapes/kiwi and rice crackers

Sometimes… there just isn’t enough time for fanciness or creativity…

4. Multigrain (crusts removed) with honey roasted turkey and and herbed goat cheese, edamame, kiwi and gogurt.

The frozen Simply gogurt defrosts by lunch time.

5. Quickie lunch: Multigrain with turkey and hummus, grapes and carrots (shredded and baby)

I try to keep easy supplies on hand for days that we’re rushing out the door. For some reason, it always feels like we’re rushing out the door!

6. Multigrain bread with thinly sliced grilled chicken breast, salad greens and mayo. Blueberries and grape tomatoes.

The side compartments make portioning so much easier!

7. Vegetable soup with “mandel” croutons, rice cake crackers and other crackers.

Leftover corn never goes to waste in our house!
