Sandwich Free Lunchbox Ideas

Back to school, and back to the lunchbox grind. I love these ideas to switch it up a little and maybe even break out of the PB&J rut. I really like the idea of breakfast for lunch and I think my crew would agree.


They’re kid favorites for a reason — and contrary to our adult biases, they don’t need to be piping hot to be delicious.


 Breakfast for Lunch

Make extra food when you have time for a nice breakfast on the weekend, and save the leftovers for lunches (think hard-boiled eggs, leftover pancakes, and leftover sausages).


Deli Meat Roll-Ups

Think outside the bun! Rolling sliced deli turkey, ham, or roast beef around cheese sticks, cream cheese, and even greens can change the way your kiddos think about lunch meat.

  • Pack with: Whole-wheat pretzels, celery (optional sunflower butter filing),and cinnamon-sprinkled apple slices

Hummus and Pita Plate 

  • Pack with: Salami, olives, carrots, baby tomatoes, and grapes. (Note that dipping is easier and less messy if you pack the hummus in a separate container.)
