What’s For Lunch? Allergy-Friendly School Lunch Ideas

Do you find yourself in the morning frenzy mode as you get your kids AND their lunches ready for school?  You are not alone!  Rushing in the morning can be stressful and potentially can put you into a lunch idea rut. To help you saygoodbye to boring and dull lunches and to help lessen some of that morning frenzy stress, here’s some inspirational ideas that you might find useful.

We started this round-up of ideas by first asking our Facebook and Instagram followers their favorite go-to lunch ideas. Here are some of the ideas that you shared with us for lunch box treats:

  • Ready-made fruit  pouches
  • Chips
  • Marshmallows

Other fun ideas from around the Web:

  • Kids with Food Allergies (KFA) – hosted a webinar about Allergy-Friendly School Lunch box Ideas that includes blogger Keeley McGuire and Registered Dietitian, Debra Indorato addressing ways to make lunches creative and nutritious.  

Need Neocate in your lunchbox?  We have you covered! Our Neocate Cookbooks are a great resource. For example you can find delicious recipes such as Cream of Broccoli Soup, Hamburger Harvest Soup, Vegetable/Cracker Dip, Neocate Shakes, Dairy-free Mac and Cheese.

Last but not least, lunch-box planning doesn’t have to be something that you take on by yourself. Get your kids involved. Give them opportunity to learn how to prepare their meals and pack their own lunches. Additionally, this will also provide them with a sense of empowerment by making recommendations. Empower your kids- let them have a say about their lunch box content

Do you have any other nifty ideas for allergy kids school lunch boxes?  Please share.
