Non-Sandwich Lunch Ideas with Printable

Do you get frustrated opening your child’s lunchbox after school and finding an untouched sandwich which they didn’t eat, AGAIN? That was me last year. After homeschooling for 14 years, we started sending our kids to school. They go to a small private school that doesn’t serve hot lunches, so I pack their lunches. Last year my son got very tired of sandwiches even though I tried switching things up with different toppings and breads.

So I purchased these cute segmented lunch boxes and started working on a list of lunch ideas that didn’t involve sandwiches.
