Almost a month into the school year and already it feels a bit overwhelming. There’s homework that needs finishing every night, laundry, cleaning, extracurriculars, events… the list just goes on and on. It can be stressful, but here are some quick and easy school lunches, that kids can even make themselves!

Chicken Parm Sliders


A great way to amp up chicken nuggets! You can either make smaller pieces of chicken parm from scratch or you can have your kid prepare this with frozen nuggets and jarred sauce. Easy peasy.

Tater Tot Grilled Cheese


Kids may need help with this awesome recipe, but it only takes fifteen minutes! Who doesn’t love tots and grilled cheese? Combining the two only seems natural.

Donut Apples


A healthy-ish twist on a donut- if you have time the night before, the kids can have fun putting the sprinkles on and playing with colored cream cheese frosting.


These are just some fun ideas, but there are plenty of other great sites to look at when trying to figure out how to prep for lunches during the week:
