Mine likes a "Jammin' Ham" sandwich--a slice of Applegate ham and some organic strawberry jam spread on a tortilla and rolled up. Delicious. You should try it!

The family's favorite lunches are dinner leftovers. The food seems to taste so much better the next day!

Thank you for highlighting the "BPA-free" containers. This nasty component found in a lot of plastics can already be found in trace amounts in most blood samples taken these days. YUK! The more we can do to keep synthetic chemicals out of our kids' bodies, the better!

I like to make enough dinner to pack leftovers for lunch but my other go-to options are: hummus w/ veggies, veggie and bean burritos, mini pizzas made on whole wheat pitas, turkey chili, grilled cheese w/ tomato and avocado. A couple times a week I like to pack a note and a surprise such as a slice of homemade banana bread or granola bar(we love the WF recipe).

When sandwiches get boring, we switch to finger foods. Crackers, organic cheeses and deli meats for the main entree with baby carrots and dip on the side. And it wouldn't be complete without some organic grapes for something sweet. Fast and nutritious!

Every week we shop at whole foods picking out "one special treat" to be eaten that day and collecting what we want for our lunches the following week. Every month I focus on one nutrient, looking for foods with: vitamin C, or Omega 3's...you get the idea and we incorporate our "nutrient of the month" in our food selections for lunches that month....it has produced some interesting results!

Moroccan tomato salad is easy to make and very versatile. You can eat it as is, put it in a sandwich (it's delicious with either Mozzarella or Jack cheese!), or use it as a dip for veggies. So many possibilities for lunches, dinners, or snacks!

I like crackers and cheese. Also cold pasta with salad dressing, cheese and my favorite meat/chicken/pepperoni.

For a really quick lunch, I spread some almond butter on a wrap, add a layer of sliced strawberries, roll it and cut it into pinwheels. That, along with a yogurt and baby carrots makes a nice and easy meal.

Rye Crisps with cheese slices and sliced tomato - a deconstructed cheese and tomato sandwich that travels well.

Seeing this video makes me wish that my toddler was school aged so I could pack fabulous lunches. Currently My son likes yogurt and any type of lunch meat for lunch.

I love to take ideas from bento boxes- some of the ideas people have are great! It also makes it easy to eat some for a snack and some for lunch.

Thanks for the helpful hints from two of my favorite stores! I have two closets from the Container Store, but I haven’t tried the lunch containers. These are great ideas for lunch! Thank you!

My daughter loves soup for lunch. I warm it in the morning, put it in a thermos and it's ready at lunch time.

I like to send cut up fruit with a toothpick included because for some reason it is just more fun to eat with a toothpick! I always pack waste free lunches in reusable containers and send cloth napkins instead of paper. You can buy cheap napkins and let your kids decorate them. I change up the always asked for peanut butter and jelly by sometimes making it peanut butter with sliced bananas or even strawberries!

I like to pack a Bento style lunch for my kids. I fill the compartments with healthy food like meats, veggies, and fruit pieces.
