These are all awesome recipes! I especially love the wraps. Wraps are perfect for on the go meals, and they’re so convenient.

These may be lunch box ideas, but I see them in my future, as well! I’m a huge fan of sandwiches. I think my kids AND I are going to be happy with lunches this year. 😉
Kelly Hutchinson says
I tend to get in a rut when it comes to making sandwiches for my daughter’s lunch. She would love the Greek Yogurt Chicken Salad Sandwich.
LOVE these lunch box ideas. I think they would work for both kids and adults to be honest! This is quite the extensive list and will certainly help us parents to be prepared for back to school.
Nancy at Whispered Inspirations says
There are so many fabulous ideas here! There are enough here to help parents throughout the entire school year. This will help parents to switch it up for sure. Great ideas and thank you for sharing.
I am totally booked working this! My kiddo is very sick of sandwiches for lunch and I ran out of creative ideas. Thank you for this post.
Liz Mays says
Oh my gosh, so many tasty ideas. I’d enjoy trying out so many of the sandwiches you featured! The treats are looking good too.
Dawn Lopez says
So many options for lunch! My son would have loved these fresh ideas when he was younger. I’m thinking I’d like to try a few of these myself. Maybe I’ll just pretend I’m packing a school lunch. 😉
Claudia Krusch says
I am always looking for lunch ideas. The Ham Salad Sandwich looks so delicious I am going to make it tomorrow for lunch. I will have to try making some mason jar salads.
Elizabeth Lampman says
Thank you so much for all the fantastic lunch ideas. I am trying to make a big list of lunches I can make during the school year. I feel like I always run out of ideas.
I’m loving all these great ideas. There are so many of them! I can find a lot of these that I will certainly be trying out.
Now I want a sandwich – that ham salad looks amazing. I love all of these great ideas to make back to school lunches tasty and interesting.
Amy Desrosiers says
Oh my goodness! Everything here looks so tasty and delicious! My kids would love any of these choices.
My teenaged niece and nephew showed my kids how they pack their lunches. A bunch of pre-packaged snacks. My kids now call it a “Matt and Isabel” lunch. I love that they want to take after their cousins, but snacks don’t make me thrilled. Need to try these fun recipes.
So many emotions, or is it cravings while I looked through these! Love them, gotta check out the Zipzicle!
