6 Tasty School Lunch Ideas

by Loree Dowse | September 2018

School has been back in session for a few weeks, and if you’re like us, your daily duties have nearly tripled. One of them – lunch duty – can be quite an ordeal, especially when it comes to striking that balance between nutrition and kid-appeal. Well, we’ve done you a little favor by pulling together some veg-focused AND yummy recipes that we’re pretty certain won’t be traded for Doritos. The options below will keep your kiddos well-fueled with delicious, nutritious fresh veggies. You can put on your Super Parent cape now.

Rainbow Pizza

It’s so pretty you almost don’t want to eat it…almost.

Make this recipe for dinner the night before and pack the rest for lunch as a leftover! Guaranteed to have the whole playground talking about your cooking.

Pineapple Pesto Chicken

Say hello to the best combo ever!

The sweet Del Monte Gold® pineapple pesto mixes perfectly with our Power Blend, just add some shredded chicken and it’s ready to be devoured.

California Stir Fry and Brown Rice

This lunch that can be enjoyed on warm or cold days, we love this recipe because it is so simple.

The best part is, it only takes a total of 20 minutes!

Now that’s a win in our book!

Sweet Potato and Monterey Jack Quesadillas

Who doesn’t love new spins on an old classic?

Add some Sweet Potato “Fettuccine” for a quick way to pack some more flavor and vitamins into your next batch of quesadillas.

Power Blend Beef and Broccoli Pot Stickers

We just love how versatile of a staple our power blend is!

These superfood packed Pot Stickers will practically disappear off of the plate, making them worth the little extra cooking time.

Double Chocolate Cauliflower “Rice” Muffins

Did someone say chocolate?  We love any excuse to use our Cauliflower “Rice” and once you taste the creamy texture it adds to this dish, you will jump on board too. There’s no shame in munching on one of these muffins for lunch, snack or dessert!
