How To Pack A Kid-Friendly Lunch Box

by / ⠀How-tos / August 27, 2013

Packing lunch is hard enough to do for yourself, let alone for your little one. Here are some ideas on how you can pack the perfect kid-friendly lunch box!


Be mindful of crunchiness: No one likes a soggy lunch. Be sure to separate crunchy items – like crackers and Cocoa Waffle Wafers – from liquids and spreads like ranch dressing, hummus and nut butter. 

Make it a balanced meal: Ideally, the lunch will have a good balance of wholesome foods your kid loves like nuts, whole grains and raw vegetables and fruit. It’s even better if you make the sure the veggies and fruit are bite-sized so they’re easy to eat!

Remember that presentation matters: Whether at home or on-the-go, everyone appreciates a nicely plated dish. You can also try using sectioned, sturdy plastic containers and packing them in insulated lunch bags to easily keep foods separated and fresh.

      Thanks for your comment, Ellie! You can certainly pack the lunch however you’d like. 🙂 We just love skewering fruits and portioning out snacks into cupcake wrappers for some added flair. Happy lunch packing!
