1. What to Pack for School Lunch. Each of my lunch packing suggestions has been tested on the Peanut and are as kid-friendly as I can get. But there is a very specific set of criteria I used before any lunch suggestion made the final cut

2. BLT Pasta Salad. Give the typical sandwich routine a fun upgrade and change up the carbs in your kid’s lunch with a deconstructed BLT (see ya, soggy bread).
3. Lunch Kebabs with Mortadella, Artichoke and Sun-Dried Tomatoes. The novelty of eating lunch off a stick will likely be enough to win 'em over—at first.
4. Avocado Chicken Salad. A tired cafeteria classic gets a surprising makeover in this updated chicken salad recipe, which calls for only a sparing amount of mayo.
5. Italian Deli Pinwheel Sandwiches. The salty, peppery trio of Italian deli meats in these pinwheel sammies pairs so well with the mildly sweet taste of provolone that kids won’t even be tempted to pick out the kale.
6. Roasted Broccoli and Bacon Pasta Salad. Bacon makes it better: A well-known fact that will absolutely get your kid to eat more greens. Case in point? This scrumptious and savory pasta salad, which cleverly disguises a heaping serving of cruciferous vegetables with a dose of crispy, salty deliciousness.
7. Peanut Butter and Banana Roll-Up Snack Box. Peanut butter brings plenty of protein and healthy fat to the table and bananas provide energy-boosting carbs.
8. Mini Deep Dish Pizzas. Let’s be honest, everyone enjoys a cold pizza snack. That said, your kid’s lunch will look and taste infinitely better if you cook up some of these cuties instead of throwing in a soggy slice from last night’s delivery.
9. Chickpea Salad Bento Box. Mild, creamy chickpeas are arguably the most likable legume, which is why kids won’t whine when they encounter this healthy no-cook salad at lunchtime.
10. Taco Pinwheels. Cute, colorful and packed with chicken and veggies, these Mexican-inspired pinwheels are held together by the most kid-friendly ingredient in your kitchen: cream cheese.
11. Avocado and Black Bean Pasta Salad. Kids are suckers for corkscrew pasta—and really, who isn’t? Capitalize on that with a pasta salad that scores high on nutritional value by delivering healthy fats, protein, fiber and a whole lot of flavor.
