18 healthy, easy school lunch recipes

Stuck on PB&J? Get fresh ideas for healthy, tasty, packable school lunches. These kid-approved recipes are sure to please children and parents alike.

Here in Colorado, kids head back to school next week. Moms, Dads, you know the math: That’s looking at roughly 180 days of healthy lunches to pack over the next nine months!

We’re lucky to have healthy-chef Ann Cooper overseeing our school lunch program, but still my kids like to pack their own lunches most of the time. How to stay out of the PB&J rut? It takes some creativity.

This year my daughter—who happens to love trying new foods (I’m so lucky!)—is playing a big part in revamping our family’s school-lunch repertoire. My son, however, is not so adventurous. Also have a picky eater? Try these simple tactics to increase your odds of success.

Next, opt for toxin-free lunchboxes and containers, then have fun with Delicious Living’s most popular kid-approved lunch recipes below. (More good news: There are tons of healthy, tasty shortcuts available in natural product stores.)
