Meal Ideas and some recipes:

Looking for some Sack Lunch ideas/tips?
  • Sandwiches:
    • Make a wrap instead of a sandwich - same concept, new presentation!
    • Try a variation on Peanut Butter & Jelly (ex. Peanut Butter & Banana, Peanut Butter & Honey, Peanut Butter, Jelly, & Apple, Almond Butter & Jelly, Peanut Butter and Strawberries etc.)
    • Egg, Tuna, or Chicken Salad - You can put lettuce between the bread and the salad to keep the bread from getting soggy.
  • Snacks:
    • Ants on a Log (Celery w/Peanut Butter & Raisins) or change it up with Almond Butter and/or Craisins
    • Carrots and Hummus
    • Pretzels (or Pretzel Chips!)
    • Cheese & Crackers
    • Hard-Boiled Eggs
    • Mixed Nuts & Dried Fruits
    • Granola Bars
    • Yogurt
  • Ways to expand Sack Lunches for a group activity:
    • Decorate the bags
    • Write notes such as "Have a Great Day!"
    • Bake some desserts, such as homemade chocolate chip cookies
    • Write all the contents of the bag on the outside
