30 Back To School Lunch Ideas & Krogers Gift Card Giveaway

***This is a sponsored post on behalf of Kroger***


I feel very strong about children getting a healthy lunch so today I have partnered with Kroeger and I am going to share a post on 30 healthy back to school lunch ideas for kids!


Now even though our lunches are not in a lunch box because the kids eat them at home, the concept would still work the same, you would just have to pack the items up for the kids and put some things into small containers in their lunch box I have shared some of those storage containers we love and our favorite products to spruce up your lunches below.

Be sure to stop into your local Kroger store and pick up some great items for your back to school lunches they make shopping affordable and convenient and don’t forget to stop over to their coupon page for discounts before you go.

I do have to add that these lunch ideas are ones that we used to use. We now eat all local food and our lunches look a little different now then they used to.

Here are some fun ways to make your lunches more exciting!!

  • Vegetable and cheese kabobs on plastic toothpicks can be great fun for kids to eat.


  • My kids love having their sandwiches or vegetables cut into shapes, it’s fun and more exciting for the kids to eat it!


  • We even have fun with our hardboiled eggs and make them into shapes which the kids really love!!
