16 Vegetarian Lunchbox Ideas


It’s back to school time which means, new clothes, supplies, homework, and packing lunchboxes!! Granted packing children’s lunchboxes isn’t exactly rocket science, but, it is always nice to have some inspiration. So, here are a few vegetarian back to school lunchbox ideas to help inspire…not vegetarian? Well then, here are a few lunchbox ideas to help inspire your ‘meat free Monday’s’ lunchboxes (wink, wink). Your time is valuable, so this post has been kept brief with just images and short explanation of each lunch. If you do have any questions please feel free to post in comments.

FYI- The meal prep containers I use are Bento Boxes by Enther Meal Prep Containers. I like them because they are reusable, BPA free, dishwasher, freezer, & microwave safe. I purchased 20 last year and still have 3 left. These are the more durable ones, I know friends have purchased others that crack right away. Mind you, if kids stand on them they will break…my son learned the hard way 3 times (eye roll)! Click here to be linked to Bento Boxes

You're off to great places! But do keep in touch!

In the words of Dr. Seuss, You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go. And when you get there take us with you!
