School has started, and – if you’re like us – you’re already running out of new ideas for what to pack in your kids’ lunchbox. It’s easy to pack the same foods week after week. But it’s great to switch things up now and then. Here are a few fresh ideas that are easy to make (and that your kids will actually eat)!

Grilled Cheese Roll Ups

This recipe is a fun new take on the classic grilled cheese sandwich. They’re great by themselves or dipped in tomato soup. You can even add deli meat for some extra protein.

Pepperoni Pizza Rolls

These adorable mini pizzas are easy to make and keep great in the freezer. Skip the homemade dough and use store-bought to make things even easier. And don’t forget the marinara sauce for dipping.

Italian Pasta Salad

This cold pasta dish is great because it’s an entire meal all within itself. It can easily be made ahead. In fact, it tastes even better the next day! Just switch up the ingredients to suit your child’s tastes.

Easy Quesadillas

Quesadillas are another great option, because they require little else to accompany them. Just add a container of salsa or guacamole (or both), and you’re done! These are also super customizable, so have fun trying different combinations of ingredients.

Antipasto Skewers

Think of these antipasto skewers as a fancy Lunchable®. One huge benefit to these is that you can actually involve even the smallest kids in making them. If your little ones’ tastes are less refined, consider using simpler ingredients.

Pigs in a Blanket

Pigs in a blanket are another perfect make-ahead, freezable option for your kids’ lunchbox. The easiest method is to use whole hotdogs and slice them after rolling. If you go with cocktail smokies you’ll have to roll them individually.

Give a few of these recipes a try when you’re looking for something beyond the usual packed lunch!
