Back to School season is here! While we’re busy stocking up on school supplies and having a blast filling out this year’s wardrobe, I’ve also been thinking about lunch and after school snack ideas. Not surprisingly, talented bloggers are full of them so I wanted to share a few of my favorites.
10 Fun Lunch Box Ideas For Your Grade Schooler
Smoked Turkey Cucumber Sandwiches Recipe by The Kitchen Is My Playground
This one is for the more sophisticated eater. If you’re not sure you’re kiddo will like it, try making it at home before packing it in their lunch.
Apple Sandwiche Recipe by Cincy Shopper
Yum! This built off some of my kid’s favorite treats: apples, raisins, and peanut butter.
Chicken Taco Bento Box Recipe by Thrifty Jinxy
Kids love being able to build their own food so this Bento Box would be a big win at my house.
Pizza Crescent Roll Ups Recipe by Amandas Cookin
These look delicious! I also make a version of these, chicken and cheese crescent roll ups that are a huge hit in my house. They make a great after school snack too.
Bento Box Mouse Recipe by Surf and Sunshine
This is *still* one of my daughters absolute favorite bento box recipes and it’s really just a glorified PB and J – which means very little work for me! It also comes with a smoothie recipe that’s perfect for breakfast on the go.
Cheesy Ranch Chicken Quesadilla Recipe by You Brew My Tea
One of the things I love about quesadillas is that they’re delicious hot or cold. You can also easily turn this into a bento box base. :)
Pizza Bento Lunchbox Recipe by Cincy Shopper
My daughter loves to buy the pizza kits in store but they’re so expensive and full of questionable contents. For this Pizza bento box, Cincy Shopper even makes the pizza dough the night before! Bonus, the recipe comes with free printable lunchbox notes.
Yum! This recipe is quick and sophisticated enough for mom or dad while remaining fun for kids too. Who could resist those winky faces?

What amazing ideas for fun lunch box ideas. I don’t always pack the kids lunch for school but they love it when I do.
What a great idea. I would definitely use some of these for my boys, they’ll love it for sure. Thank you!
Thank you so much!!! I have a 1st & 4th grader who start back on the 18th & I was already thinking that I needed to switch up their lunches this year.
I am always looking for new school lunch ideas. All these look delicious and I’m sure my kids will love them.
