5 Creative Back-to-School Lunch Ideas

Betty blogger Corey Valley whips up a handful of darling (and delicious!) lunchboxes. MORE+ LESS-

It’s that time of year again! Time to dust off your little’s backpacks, stock up on school supplies and start brainstorming lunch ideas to keep them excited about brown-bagging it. To kick off the year on a fun note, here are a few school-themed boxes to work into your lunch-making routine. 

Peanut butter and jelly sushi is a creative and fun twist on a lunchtime standby. You can combine peanut butter and jelly in the same roll, or separate the flavors like I did here. Add in some veggies and a pack of Nature Valley Maple Brown Sugar Granola Bars and you have a filling, fun lunch!

As a kid, my favorite part of back-to-school shopping was getting a new box of crayons. Is there anything better than a fresh box of all those colors? This is my version of a lunchbox full of brand new crayons. Inside I packed a rainbow of colors, including carrots, grapes, snap peas, Gushers Fruit Snacks, a Nature Valley Protein Bar, blueberries and a small corn on the cob.

You'll score an A+ from the kiddos with this “homework” cheese quesadilla, packed in Sistema's Lunch Cube to Go. After preparing your quesadilla, cut into a rectangle and use food-color markers to make “notebook paper” lines. Finish this cute lunch off with some fresh veggies and dip, a LÄRABAR and a couple small cookies for dessert.

An apple-shaped sandwich, complete with a Betty Crocker™ Fruit Roll-Ups worm will surely bring a smile come lunchtime. Rounding out this lunch is a Yoplait Trix yogurt (such a good source of calcium) and crunchy little cucumber slices.

Back-to-school season wouldn't be complete without a visit from a wise old owl. To make this academic, animal-inspired lunch, I topped a sandwich with some cheese and salami cuts-outs to form the owl’s body. The diploma is made out of a small flour tortilla, tied with a Betty Crocker™ Fruit Roll-Ups bow. To balance it out, I packed in some crunchy broccoli along with some Chex Mix.
