Build a Better Lunchbox – 6 Ways to Upgrade Your Lunch!

Before you know it, it’s time to begin your Back to School shopping and meal planning. Dreading the idea of coming up with tasty, nutritious lunches for your little ones? Don’t worry – we’ve got you covered.

Below are six of our favorite ideas for building a better lunchbox for your kids (or you!) so you can keep back-to-school season stress-free.

Lunchbox #1 – Serious Snack-Time

Prefer snacking to a traditional sandwich or salad? Add your fave fruit, peanut butter, yogurt, and a hard-boiled egg to your lunch-box for serious snack-time.

Lunchbox #2 – Build a (Better) Turkey Sandwich

The secret to our famous turkey sandwich? Guac. It gives the traditional turkey sandwich more flavor than mayo and just the bit of Southwestern flair you’re kids will crave come lunchtime.

Lunchbox #3 – Salad Meets #TacoTuesday

Salad + Tacos = Taco Salad! Easy, right? Start with chopped romaine or Bibb lettuce, and top with corn, black beans, salsa, and shredded cheese!

Lunchbox #4 – Upgrade Your Tuna Salad

Take your tuna salad up a notch. Skip the mayo and opt for mixing with your favorite hummus! You can get creative with the flavor combos by using different hummus flavors with different tuna packets.

Lunchbox #5 – Build a (Better) Pasta Salad

An easy lunch for school or the office, prep this pasta on Sunday night and be set for the week ahead.

Lunchbox #6 – Easy Meal Prep with Rotisserie Chicken

Put together a week’s worth of lunches from just 1 ShopRite rotisserie chicken! Great for chicken salad wraps (above) as well as to throw in soups, enchiladas, and more.
