Parenting Hacks: School Lunch Ideas

This month, we asked parents to share school lunch ideas that go beyond the cheese sandwich. Send your parenting hacks to ideas@kidsvt.com.

I got this idea from Weelicious: A slice of bread with the crust cut off, then rolled flat with a rolling pin. Smear with cream cheese. Then super thinly sliced veggies layered at one end. Sugar snap peas, carrots, peppers, celery, etc. Roll it like sushi. Then slice into bite sizes. My son loves these and they fit great in a bento box lunch. It also works well with sunbutter and jelly. Also, the tortilla version with peanut butter and banana is a hit too.

Spinach applesauce mini muffins. Great for snack time! My little guy loves them.
Melissa Senesac

Hummus with sliced baguette or egg salad with cilantro. Add cut-up fruit or homemade pear or apple sauce.

Sushi tacos. We send them with rice in a thermos and a package of those seaweed snacks in the Asian food aisle. So easy and so good.

There's really nothing special here — just a turkey sandwich — but presentation makes all the difference.
