Whether you are at work or enjoying time off with your family, we thought that you would be interested in getting fast and easy lunchbox ideas to make lunch prep and packing smoother this summer. Meet Jessica, co-founder at Teuko and happy mom of 2 summer campers (5yo and 8yo).  Jessica retrieved her kids’ favorites on Teuko and made a selection of lunchbox ideas ideal for vacation or summer camps!

Find below the top 10 of her kids’ favorites summer lunchbox ideas as well as some tips for making it fun and easy to prepare and to eat.

Salads

Nop, salads are not just for mommy 🙂 I’m not just sharing about the green leafy plant here but how I combine crunchy and soft, sweet and salty, (life-saver) leftovers with fresh food, in different ways. Find below what my kids enjoyed last summer.

Salty Cake

It can look like a quiche without the crust, but the consistency is more like bread or cake. You may need 15-20 min of preparation but the oven will do the magic for you! Have a look at Teuko’s easy recipe of spinach, ham and gruyère salty cake.  Check out below suggestions of food swaps and combination that would make your kids’ tummies super happy:

  • Ham and gruyère (the easiest).
  • Black and/or green olives, bacon, and gruyère.
  • Zucchini, tuna, and mozzarella.
  • Sliced bell peppers (pre-cooked in olive oil – think about using leftovers 😉 ), thyme and gruyère.
