Quick Back to School Lunch Ideas
Wednesday Aug 23rd, 2017
With little ones off to school again, parents are back to the struggle of finding something quick to put into the lunch box every day. Here are four quick ideas for variety that go beyond the sandwich. (Great for parents’ lunch boxes, too!)
- l Cold pasta with just about anything: tomatoes, black olives, marinated artichoke hearts, chicken, etc. Add a dash of olive oil to moisten.
- l Pita pockets with tuna, egg, or chicken salad. Toss in sliced or diced cucumbers and tomatoes.
- l Tortilla rolls with cream cheese, chopped green onions, cheddar cheese, and a dash of salsa. Also tortilla rolls with hummus, turkey, and lettuce.
- l Mini bagels with a variety of toppings: pizza sauce and cheese, cream cheese, peanut butter, tuna salad, etc.
