  1. Those are all great ideas. I am always looking for healthy options for my daughter.

  2. Catherine S says

    Thanks for the great options. I know my son always liked it when I mixed things up. I wish I had Bento Box lunches when I was in school.

  3. These are all cute and all.. But my kids like stuff simple not all fancy like.

  4. I love the pita pockets! The key is fun lunches that won’t create a mess. There are so many lunches that you could potentially create at home!

  5. My kids start school tomorrow. I’ve been looking for new ways to spice up their ordinary everyday lunches

    • Dawn McAlexander says

      My daughter has already been back a couple weeks I think. When I was young, I think we used to start after Labor Day, too, though.

  6. Since my son is uber picky eater, I haven’t tried making a creative lunchbox meal. I love all of these ideas, though!

  7. Wanderin Poet says

    These are delicious ideas.

  8. Bonnie @ wemake7 says

    These all look so cool. I bet my kiddos would love having their lunchboxes look like that.

  9. Those food have such cute designs! It would be hard for me to eat them because I would feel guilty of ruining the presentation, if I were the kid. 😛

  10. Great ideas for health conscious adults too! Thanks–I can use these to inspire some lunches.

  11. I love the Rio Bento Box! The birdies are so cute (and I’m willing to bet tasty!)

  12. These are such great ideas and cute too! I’m sure my kids would love them.

  13. Those little pizzas are adorable! I never had cool lunches. It was always PBJ for me, or whatever the school was serving that day

  14. The pirate bento box looks delicious. I’m not a kid and I want a bunch of these meals!

  15. My picky eater would love the pizza bento box. He love pizza and I’m sure this one is a hit

  16. I love the pizza bento idea! That would definitely be my favorite. No kids for me though, so no need to pack lunches!

  17. The pizza one would for sure be my favorite one. These are some great ideas for that age-old question of What to pack for lunch today! So glad I am past all of that!

  18. Melissa Smith says

    I can’t believe I never thought of doing a pizza box like that! So doing this, thank you!!!! 😀

  19. Everything is so cute! My son is going through a majorly picky stage, so lunch this year is going to be interesting.

  20. Thanks for sharing these amazing school lunch ideas… Now kids will bring their lunch boxes empty

  21. Thanks for making school lunches cool again. Wish I had children I would be so doing this!

  22. The lunches are so beautifully packed that even an adult would love them… Nothing beats presentation of good food.

  23. So making myself the pizza one. I always loved pizza luncables when I was younger but they were so not good for you. This looks healthy.

  24. Jenise @ DIYFunIdeas.com says

    These are such fun lunch ideas! When I was a kid, my mom just slapped some P&J on a sandwich and sent me on my way. 🙂

  25. What a great way to entice kids to eat their foods. Very cute ideas!

  26. These look awesome! Looks like a good therapy idea too! Hmm… 🙂

    It’s hard to get kids to eat well at home. At school, even harder. These are ll great ideas so ensure they eat a good, healthy lunch!
