Super-Fast Kids Lunch Box Sandwich Recipes

Making Sandwiches Fun Again

So you may not need to make lunch box sandwiches for a little while longer, but a great way to keep routines up for your little ones who may actually be missing school after being off for the Summer is to create a winning lunch box meal for the last few weeks before class starts.

These three quick lunch ideas are sure to get your kids excited about lunchtime while also finishing their meals.

1. Cookie Cutter Sandwiches

These are a hit for younger kids, especially preschoolers!

You may not have the time to bake cookies, but that’s no reason not to invest in a few great cookie cutters that your children love. From the alphabet, to stars, to butterflies or even snowmen for the winter season, your kids’ favorite sandwiches can transform into something fun to enjoy while at school. Making your sandwich creations whimsical can help to encourage your toddler to eat whole-wheat, multigrain, or even a childhood favourite like Wonder® White Bread. Try filling the sandwiches with a range of options from cheese to hummus or even butter and jam.


2. Mini Slider Buns

Another fun and easy-to-handle option for your little one’s lunch box are mini slider bunwiches! You may not want to send along an actual burger patty since hot food usually goes cold and tasteless by the time lunchtime rolls around, but there are tons of other options when it comes to filling your sliders. Choose your child’s favourite or, if cheese is their go-to, at least you can change it up day to day with variations on your bread choices. Slider buns are also the perfect size for lunch.
