Mini Burritos

It’s easy to fall into the rut of packing sandwiches every day. Break that trend with these Mini Burritos by The Girl Who Ate Everything! Full of meat, cheese, and beans, these burritos are packed with flavor. The best part is that you can make this recipe ahead of time and freeze them. Save yourself some time by prepping a large batch. The kids will love the change from the typical PB&J!

Pizza Buns

While you could certainly pack last night’s leftover pizza in your kid’s lunch the next day, this recipe by Simple As That is a bit more fun. These Pizza Buns are not only simple to make, but you can make a lot at once! Not to mention, you can let the kids pick all the toppings they want.

Peanut Butter and Jelly Tacos

These Peanut Butter and Jelly Tacos by Homemade Interest are creative and adorable! All you need is bread, peanut butter, jelly, strawberries, and blueberries. In no time, you’ll whip up these tasty “tacos.” Additionally, the extra fruit packs a bit more nutrition than the typical PB&J sandwich.

Ham and Mac and Cheese Lunchbox Muffins

This recipe from I Should Be Mopping the Floor offers a unique lunch entree featuring tasty mac and cheese and flavorful ham. The use of breadcrumbs gives these muffins an extra crunch. Using a muffin tray, you’ll divide the mixture into separate muffin cups and bake it in the oven for 20-25 minutes. The result is eight delicious lunchbox muffins! This lunch idea is sure to make your kid the talk of the cafeteria.
