Toddler Lunch Ideas
Tired of making (and serving) your toddler the same ol’ pb&j?
Then this post is for you – 6 Healthy and Fun Toddler Lunch Ideas – to the rescue!
We all get into lunch making ruts, myself included. This past spring, I think I made my girls the same school lunch 8 times in a row before they refused to eat it one more time! I get it. A favorite lunch can only be consumed so many times in a row before it loses it’s sparkle.
So I went back to the kitchen and started working on some new toddler lunch recipes. These lunches needed to be easy to make, loved by both of my girls and be able to be served at home or packed into a school lunch.
These 6 lunches made the cut!
The girls loved how fun there were – pepper “sprinkles”, roll-ups, dippers and a lunch-on-a-stick!
I loved how healthy and easy they were to make!
I served all of these toddler lunches below packed into our favorite bento box for school with complete success.
