Hi-Ho! Hi-Ho!
It’s off to school we go!
Mom, pack my lunch,
Thank you very much!

I did the math and with three kids, I pack over 60 lunches every month. We definitely save money packing our own lunches, but we tend to get stuck in a rut of the same boring sandwich day after day. I love finding new recipes that are simple, healthy and fun for my kids.

These 20 recipes are easy sandwich, roll and wrap lunchbox ideas that kids will love. Create fun animal faces, add more veggies and discover some new favorite main dishes for lunches.
