Back To School Lunch Ideas

It’s almost time for kids to head back to school. To save your children from the unhygienic food that cafeterias in schools serve, you must pack some lunch for them before school. Of course, plain egg sandwiches won’t keep them for long so you’ll have to do better on the lunches to keep them from that unhealthy food. We’ve made a list of ‘back to school’ lunches that most of the mom’s voted on. They are not only healthy, but also taste delicious. Prepare these for your kids and watch them love home-made lunches more than ever:

This is not only favored by elders and teenagers, but young children are huge fans too. People are usually extremely lazy to cook something extra so early in the morning, however, grilled cheese sandwich requires less than 10 minutes and is the easiest to make. It requires only three ingredients; butter, bread and cheese (according to your preference). Follow this recipe and make your kids start their morning with this delicious grilled cheese sandwich.

Four ingredients and five minutes are all it takes to prepare this meal for your kid.

Dairy products are well known for the high amount of protein and calcium that they contain. Along with fruits combined, they make nutritious lunch dish and will keep your kids full and cool throughout the day. The rich creamy texture and the flavor of fresh fruits will make this fruit cream a good option for your child’s lunch. 

This one might take a little while longer. It is usually served as a mid-day snack, but would do well as lunch too. Mini Pizza Quiches account for the perfect cheese-based food that your kid might like and one can easily top them up with olives, mushrooms or any other ingredients as per your need.

The only way your kids will willingly eat vegetables is if you combine them with something they love i.e. macaroni. Chicken macaroni salad is packed with mustard, mayonnaise, herbs, spices, and vegetables. It is a balanced and easy recipe that anyone can prepare. 

This is the most nutritious and simple dish. Requiring only a few simple ingredients at home including healthy vegetables, it is bound to make your kids’ mouth water and crave for more after the first serving.

Name one kid who’d say no to cookies, especially if they include chocolate chip. They will surely make your child’s day so make sure to bake a few extra cookies for his friends also. Pair it up with some sweet milk and let them enjoy the meal of a lifetime! Follow this recipe of Chocolate Chip Cookies, and make crunchy cookies to make your kid’s day. 

As delicious as it sounds, it is also a very nutritious dish. We’ve mostly heard the name hummus while getting a Shawarma wrap, but there’s more than one way to eat this. Pairing it up with tortilla chips cannot be missed because the crunchiness adds up to the flavor of its rich creamy texture. Follow our recipe to make hummus at home and enjoy the creamy goodness!

We hope these recipes are easy and fun for you to make. Give them a try and let us know what you think! 



Being a Pakistani, food has always been my comforter, be it me getting happy over a happy meal or my father asking me to go to school just to get sweets in return. Food is not just about eating, its a sentiment that connects people with each other. I started writing for Food Tribune because of my love for food.
