Quick & Easy School Lunch: Homemade Pizza Lunch-able

Thursday, August 13, 2015

Bringing school lunches can get boring. They want the same sandwich day in and day out, or they beg for pre-packaged store-bought lunches. You know the ones I mean. Well, you can make them at home for a fraction of the cost and add in some healthy items too.

A few simple ingredients for a pizza-themed lunch cut into pile-able pieces, and you're all set!

What I used:
  • Round butter crackers
  • Pepperoni slices
  • Cheddar Jack slices (any cheese will do)
  • A jar of pizza sauce

Everything involved is already bite-sized except the cheese. Just pile up a few slices and cut them into 4 pieces. Add a dollop of pizza sauce to a small leak-proof container and you're all set!

Some ideas for accompaniments to make this a more balanced lunch:
  • Baby carrots
  • Cucumber slices
  • Celery sticks
  • An avocado half (rub the cut edge with lemon juice)
  • Bell pepper slices
  • Berries
  • A fruit cup
  • A yogurt
  • Use your imagination!

Buying these ingredients costs the price of a couple of those pre-packaged lunches, but will last a couple of kids for a week! Saving money is always a plus and they'll love that you packed them a fun lunch they get to assemble themselves!

Do you pack school lunches? Do they love those store-bought lunch kits? Are they fans of pizza? I love to hear from you; Let me know in the comments!
