Meal Ideas

Sack Lunch Ideas and 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

    • Sweet & Spiced Nuts

  • 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
