Lunch Box Ideas – Schools have opened ( finally !!) after 2 months of summer break and life is back to normal. But kids are having a hard time going back to school after long holidays. Packing the lunch box is another struggle as they have to be lured into going to school by making their favorite dishes.
I really hate to see food left in the lunch boxes when kids come back from school because they did not feel like eating it. We can not compromise on nutrition also. It has to be tasty and healthy. Parantha with vegetable is my first choice for kids School lunch box but they need variety and get bored with parantha in 2-3 days. So I try my best to pack some healthy snacks too.
I have prepared a list of items my kids love to take in their school lunch boxes. I hope these help you in packing your kid’s lunch box. If you have some recipe that your kids enjoy taking in their tiffin box I would love to hear about that. Please leave a comment below about that.
Our blog post, school lunch box ideas have been mentioned by the leading paper ‘THE HINDU’ in their article lunchtime treat.
Here is the list of school lunch box ideas
Spicy vegetable toast
My son took these to school and when he came home he said mom you have to send 2 tiffins of these now bcoz his friends loved them so much that there was not enough left.
This is also perfect to take in lunchboxes and you can sneak in as many vegetables as you like.
You can prepare the batter night before and steam the dhokla in the morning. A very healthy option.
Cute isn’t it :-). Suji Uttapam or semolina pancakes are quite easy to make and healthy.
Bread cup pizza
I have not really sent them in my kid’s lunchbox yet but my son is asking me to make these for some time. Maybe I will give it a try this week.
This one is a childhood favorite of mine. I used to love taking these in the lunch box. you can prepare the potato mixture in advance and prepare the rolls in the morning.
Moong Dal Dhokla
Though it tastes best when fresh this can be sent in the kid’s school lunch box as a side dish.
Hung Curd Sandwich
very easy to make. Yummy, healthy, packed with vegetables, I rest my case 😉
My kids love it. I usually make this with leftover Poha but you can make it with fresh poha also.
