We have so many things to do in our busy lives and so little time! This is especially true during Back-to-School when we face complicated lunch packing decisions daily. If we resolved to provide our kids with healthier and happier lunches, we still need to keep the packing process fast and easy in order to be realistic! Check out the lunch ideas we just picked for you to surprise the little ones without spending too much time.
Discover below the easy-to-make lunch ideas from parents who turn food into cool lunches!
Is your little princess a fan of Tangled? Or your little prince asking over and over again the tale of Goldilocks and the Three Bears? Use spaghetti for creating the long blond hair!
A white round face with rice, ham, edamame, and seaweed. A piece of ham will do the trick for making a lovely girly bow!
The Wreck It Ralph 2 movie coming out soon, create Vanellope Rolls with seaweed, rice and sausage (carrot flower totally optional!)
Two dino ideas into one in this cool lunchbox: a triceratops spinach pancake and, if you don’t have the mold to shape the triceratops, a cute baby “snow peas, and egg” baby dino!
For that one, you’ll need dino-shaped cutters and googly eyes picks. These inexpensive lunchbox accessories will make your young dino fan super happy!
One big rice ball for the head, two little rice balls for the ears… you’ve made 90% of the bear! Add tiny pieces of provolone cheese and of seaweed… done!
A slice of bread, a little bit of ham and a tiny piece of seaweed will do the trick for making a cute brown bear!
Just take a slice of yellow-ish cheese, cut it with the shape of Winnie the Pooh. Draw the eyebrows, the eyes, the nose and the mouse with a food marker. You can possibly add a bow tie and a hat… and voilà!
Not in the mood of shaping? Use a mini cutter, and easily gets cute bears from a slice of Colby Jack cheese!
Hot Hotdog Bento
Just a sausage, a tiny piece of cheese and peppercorn!
Put a summery American zest of Coney Island with mini hotdogs. Lovely ranged, it will be a hit!
Googly Eyes Bentos
Take 5 googly eyes picks and have your lunchbox hyper friendly in seconds!
Or simply 2 picks on a half bagel and you got a funny monster-sandwich!
For making a googly eye Elmo, you may need extra seconds compared to the two previous ideas, but it’s relatively simple too: have a cherry tomato, 3 round pieces of cheese (2 of provolone cheese, 1 of cheddar), a seaweed for the eyes and the mouth… done! You have a Sesame Street masterpiece!
With the use of wraps, fresh grated veggies, and googly eyes sticks, it’s like we have colorful Minions or rainbow Toys Story’s Aliens in the lunchbox!
Use a cookie cutter, add blueberries for the eyes, or just use a colorful food marker, and your lunchbox connoisseur will go to the infinity and beyond!
