My Easy Lunch Formula

Coming up with lunch ideas each day of the school year is a lot! That’s why I created a simple lunch-packing formula. It’s a great way to take the guessing out of packing healthy lunches that kids love and eat. My formula divides the lunchbox into 4 categories which come together to create a nutritious lunch.

Why use this formula?

  • Takes all the guesswork out of having to build a lunch each day.
  • Instead of feeling frustrated by a lack of ideas, you’ll have a framework or starting point that simply needs to be “filled in.” The printable 42 school lunch ideas cheat sheet gives you a ton of ideas that you can print off and use to build easy lunches.

My Lunch Formula

  • Main Course: the hearty “main dish” of the lunch. A sandwich, pizza, leftovers, soup, a wrap, homemade lunchable, quesadilla, rolled up turkey and cheese, pasta salad, etc.
  • Fruit: fresh fruit, like sliced apples, berries, fruit salad (a few fruits mixed together), dried fruit, 100% fruit bars, etc.
  • Veggie: a mini salad, veggie sticks, or veg that’s been added to a sandwich or wrap or soup.
  • Crunch: Something extra that feels like a “treat or snack,” like a muffin, trail mix, popcorn, crackers, plantain chips, pretzels, cheese cubes or slices, etc.

Mix and Match School Lunch Ideas for Kids

Tips for Packing School Lunch

  • Pack Hot Lunches in a Thermos: When packing food like soup, chicken and rice, macaroni and cheese, or any dinner leftovers that are enjoyed warm, use a thermos to keep the food hot. Then pack extra foods, like fruits, veggies, etc. in a separate container. A bento box is great for packing these extra items. Not all foods need to be served warm, like a quesadilla or pizza. In this case, pack the food to be eaten at room temperature. Learn how to pack hot lunches in a thermos.
  • Use an Ice Pack for Cold Lunches: When packing cold foods, like cheese, tuna salad, chicken salad, yogurt, or deli meat, add an ice pack to an insulated lunch bag. This will keep the food safe and chilled until lunchtime. Learn how to use an ice pack to keep food safe and cold.
  • Use a Bento Box: A bento box is a lunchbox that’s divided into smaller compartments. This makes packing a lunch easy as a parent and easy for your child to eat. Check out my favorite bento boxes for kids.

Lunch is not the time for experimentation, even if this means packing the same foods over and over. Focus on packing the foods your child loves. This is just a season and will not last forever. Don’t make lunch a battle. The goal of lunch is to fuel your child with the best nutrition possible to keep them focused, satisfied, and energized for the long day. Focus on packing the foods your child loves, while encouraging exploration of new foods at home as a family. Learn how to help picky eaters be more adventorous with foods.

The very best way to keep food hot, like soup, chicken nuggets, pasta, etc. is to warm the food in the morning before school, then add the food to a thermos. I share how to choose the very best thermos and how to pack hot food so it stays hot for hours in this post.

For cold foods, always include an ice pack for safety. I share how to pack cold foods and how to choose the best the ice pack in this post.

Most bento boxes are not leakproof. To pack these foods, use leak-proof containers that fit inside the bento box. There are a variety of sizes available for packing small dressings and dips to large containers for yogurt. Learn about the best lunchbox gear, like dipper containers, here.
