Are your kids already getting bored with school lunch? PB&J is great but even that gets old after a while. Now that we are wrapping up the first quarter of the school year, it is time for a lunchbox refresh. I’ve partnered with Stonyfield® Organic YoKids® yogurts to share some simple and wholesome school lunch ideas that your kids are sure to love.
When coming up with new lunchbox ideas, there are a few things I try to keep in mind. First off, it has to be simple for me to prepare, and something I can do quickly at 6:30am while my coffee is brewing. There has to be variety. I never know what my picky eater is going to be in the mood for, so I try to give her plenty of options. Lastly, it has to be wholesome. YoKids® line of low-fat organic yogurt’s are a perfect addition to school lunches.
Lunchbox Refresh! School Lunch Ideas…
Try to think beyond the sandwich when it comes to school lunch ideas. When I was a kid, sandwiches were a lunchbox staple. Jelly and cheese were my fav with bologna coming in a close second. My 9-year old isn’t as impressed with the sandwich as I was.
To keep things interesting, swap out that sandwich for a cheese quesadilla. Even better, make it a pepperoni and mozzarella pizza quesadilla. Or simply add a little leftover chopped chicken to your child’s favorite cheese.
Sandwich pinwheels are always a hit. Hard boiled eggs are also a great addition to school lunches.
I sneak as many fruits and veggies as I can into school lunches. To make things easy on myself, I wash and prep all the veggies the same day I do my shopping. That way everything is ready to go when I’m packing T’s lunchbox.
YoKids® line of low-fat organic yogurt’s are portable and perfect for the lunchbox. Just don’t forget an ice pack! All of the products are Non GMO Project Verified, with no high fructose corn syrup. They have less sugar too! Stonyfield recently announced a sugar reduction across its yogurt portfolio – and it started with YoKids®, featuring between 25% – 40% less sugar than the leading kids’ yogurt. Even better, they taste AMAZING! No wonder Stonyfield® Organic YoKids® yogurt is the #1 organic kids yogurt brand.
Stonyfield® Organic YoKids® yogurts have the USDA Organic label which means they are certified organic. Each cup is made without the use of toxic persistent pesticides, artificial hormones, antibiotics and GMOs. Organic certification matters because just calling something natural isn’t a guarantee.

Packing a wholesome lunch that your kids will enjoy doesn’t have to be difficult. Look for YoKids® yogurt, available in cups, pouches, tubes, smoothies, at your local grocer. They are a delicious lunchbox addition and grab-and-go snack that can be enjoyed anywhere. I hope these school lunch ideas have inspired you to get creative when packing your child’s lunchbox.
