Five Back to School Lunch Ideas You’ll Want to Make for Yourself

For most parents, tomorrow marks back to school (cue the sound of sirens in the distance) and so rises that daunting, every-present question: what should I pack for lunch?

 

Whether you’re gluten free, dairy free, vegetarian, or just looking for something you can feel good about packing in their wonder woman lunch kits, we’ve scanned the internet and found five great recipes you can make at home that are as healthy as they are yummy. Best part? These are adult-friendly and packed with flavour, so feel free to double the recipes and stock up your (limited edition black panther) lunch kit.

 

 

1) Fruit and Yogurt Dip with Baked Cinnamon Chips

A sweet snack you can feel good about, made with homemade corn tortilla chips and topped with a delicious, creamy yogurt dip. Great as a breakfast option too!

 

 

2) Baked Veggie Taquitos

It’s fall which means we are craving all things squash. These veggie-loaded taquitos can be baked ahead of time and then microwaved at school or work with a side of sour cream or salsa, or- for more adventurous taste buds- pico de gallo.

 

3) “Are you Nuts?” Chocolate Power Balls

Dairy and refined-sugar free, these power balls pack a wallop. The perfect blend of sweet and tart, they make a great mid-afternoon snack.

 

 

 

4) Easy and Healthy Pizza Roll ups

Ok, so these may not be the healthiest options on our list, but they are so quick and easy we had to include them. Pro tip? Forgo the frozen dough and make your own using this recipe.

 

5) Greek Chicken Bowls

Light, packed with incredible flavour and perfect served cold or hot, this is one of our favourite lunch go-to’s. Try marinading overnight to up the impact.
