Some kids just want peanut butter and jelly, so mix it up with PB&J buns that are sticky good. And you can get kids excited about eating fruits by slicing off the tops of strawberries, scooping out the inside, filling with cream cheese, and topping with a blueberry. Fun and delicious.

Some kids aren't big eaters at lunch, so offering a main item, like cheesy corn dog muffins, hits the spot. Add in fresh grapes and sliced celery sticks, and you have a happy luncher.

The Classic

For kids who love pizza, try making easy pizza tortilla spirals that are filled with yummy flavor but wont get dried out and tough like leftover pizza. To entice kids to eat veggies, use a cookie cutter to create enticing shapes, like stars or even hearts.

For kids who aren't superexcited about foods touching or lots of fresh ingredients, create sandwich skewers with turkey, cheese, and pieces of bread. Cut pointed ends off wooden skewers and trim to fit your lunchbox container. Serve alongside salad cups, fresh grapes, and pretzels. It's definitely more exciting than a basic turkey sandwich.
