Some mornings call for mindless lunch packing. And this one qualifies.
Probably the easiest sandwich on the planet, but the kids love it.
Here’s what’s in today’s bento lunch box for kids!
Peanut butter is one of the easiest proteins to pack for kids.
But it’s also one of the top 8 food allergens.
So while it’s very easy to make peanut butter lunches for school…
please do make sure you’re aware of your school’s peanut policy.
If it’s not allowed, find suitable substitutes like perhaps seed butter.
Ask your school what’s approved.
And if peanut butter IS allowed and your kiddo can safely eat it, please teach your child food allergy safety like washing hands after eating and not sharing food with others.
If your kiddo is one with a peanut allergy, hopefully you have a substitute you can use that’s also allowed by the school.
Or enjoy this lunch on weekends at home. Kids will love it anytime!
I also made this a lot when I had preschoolers at home and as a home school mom always on lunch duty.
Now here’s our special little touch on the peanut butter sandwich.
It’s not peanut butter and jelly. But it’s peanut butter and honey.
I like to use unsweetened peanut butter so the kids really do like the sweet honey added.
And with a squeeze bottle of honey on hand, these are definitely faster to make than PBJ.

These fruit chews are our absolute favorite, and I find them at Aldi.
