Stumped for Lunch Ideas Already?

My children started back to school on Monday and they are already tired of lunches so we are having to shake it up a bit already. Here are some ideas that we have found that have helped already...

Bagel Sandwiches - My oldest daughter (Kyra) loves Peanut Butter and Jelly but has become bored with just a regular sandwich. Adding a Bagel for the bread changed everything.

Wraps - My younges daughter (Lauren) likes Turkey. One day she just had Turkey, American Cheese and Mayo rolled up together. She didn't want any bread at all. Today though she is having a whole wheat wrap with Turkey, Baby salad greens and mayo.

These are all healthy options and it gives them a bit of variety and control over what they eat.

If they like something a little off the wall like Blue Cheese (Kyra loves it) give them a slice in a small Ziploc bag.

Weight Watcher bagels are great. Give them a try. Smaller and very moist.

Great suggestion. I find that they like the sweetness of whole wheat bagels as well.
