Lunch ideas for kids

When you have a million and one things to get done for the kids, trying to come up with simple lunch ideas for your kids isn’t easy. In fact, it can be down right impossible!

We have put together a few lunch ideas for you that help you with making quick, and easy meals for the children, but they won’t take up too much of your time.

From pasta, to even though recipes that have a little bit of a twist, such as dips, and Indian cuisine, we have tried to give a few lunch ideas here that are a slightly different twists on some of your old favourites. We have even included the classic Tomato pasta, alongside a much more interesting Strawberries and Cream pasta! We even have a foraging recipe with Chickweed sandwiches from those kids that might even be tempted by some of the more adventurous ideas out there.

We have tried to include some interesting ingredients generally; with Chorizo and Salmon making an appearance, alongside the classic wrap.

As we know that our readers are from all walks of life, there are options for Vegan and Vegetarian palates too. Anyone for a Mushroom Steak sandwich?!

The main idea with this recipes for lunch is that they don’t take too long to make, and the classics will please even the fussiest of eaters.

We realise that, as parents, time is precious, and you don’t want to have to be in the kitchen for too long crafting your lunch ideas when there is a toddler hanging off your leg 😆
