5 Snacky Lunch Ideas For School

Snacky lunches are fun to make, easy to pack and easy to eat. Lately, besides leftovers, most of Nikolai's lunches are snacky lunches which I often times refer to as homemade lunchables. With the short school lunch time, and of course the need to talk at lunch, snacky lunches are convenient and most welcome. It contains foods that he loves to eat, and we have the foods on hand most of the time.

These lunches are also easy for us to assemble with variety of fruits, vegetables, crackers, cheese, meats, breads, etc.

Our snacky lunches mostly contains any of the following:
  • Bread, crackers, croissant, bagel, tortilla wraps, muffins, pretzels.
  • A variety of cheese either in slices, sticks, wheels and at times cut into fun shapes from block cheese.
  • Sliced deli ham, turkey, roast beef, salami.
  • Fruits such as apple slices, seedless grapes, berries, peaches, watermelon, orange slices, and at times apple sauce.
  • Vegetables and dips (ranch or hummus).
  • Extra treat - Granola bar, rice krispies, popcorn, chips.
