School lunches can be dull. Here are some fun and healthy ways to make great school lunches with a little extra pizzazz.

Healthy/Fun Lunch Idea #1) Use Tortilla Wraps


Sometimes bread can be boring. So switch it up a bit by using tortillas instead. They can be used the same way bread can. You can still do PB & J, sandwich meats and other things.

Healthy/Fun Lunch Idea #2) Cut Out Eggs for Sandwich Eyes


This is fun! Boil some eggs, cool them and cut out some eyes and put them on your kids sandwich to make them look like sandwich faces.

Healthy/Fun Lunch Idea #3) Make Animals Out of Celery


Sometimes your food can look like an animal . Take celery, spread some peanut-free peanut butter or cheese whiz in it, put thin apple slices in the middle and carrot sticks for antennas. Cute!

Healthy/Fun Lunch Idea #4) Make Kabobs


You can easily make some cool kabobs. You can use meat, cheese or even fruit. Get creative!

Healthy/Fun Lunch Idea #5) Finger Foods


There’s no rule that lunch has to include a sandwich, chips and a cookie. Try a tasting plate of chicken chunks or deli turkey roll-ups with a handful of grapes, and carrots with a small container of low-fat dressing. Finger foods are usually a hit with kids.
