I know back-to-school often leaves moms wondering…

what to make for lunches day in and day out? 

Add to that food allergies and sometimes picky kids,

and we mamas can find ourselves stumped and frustrated by September.

That’s why I decided to document some fun, milk-free lunches my kiddos were happily eating.

Complete with pictures, tips, and even brands.

I hope this list gives you lots of inspiration and saves you tons of brain power. 

Just make sure you check all food labels for yourself because ingredients can change.

Use these lunch ideas at home for preschoolers or home school kiddos…

or out the door for kids attending school away from home.

These are all cold lunch ideas that I send out the door with ice packs. 

No microwaves needed. 

AND, most of these are NOT sandwiches. Woohoo! 

Your kids will love the variety.

See our lunch list below!
