8 Yummy Ways To Reinvent Your School Lunch

Is your lunch getting boring? Check out this article for the best tips & tricks to reinvent your school lunch. Your friends will be super jealous!

It’s the second half of the school year, which means your school lunch is probably getting a little boring. I mean, I think we can all appreciate a sandwich just not every day. Don’t worry, we’re here to save the day! Check out these eight ways to reinvent your school lunch.

Yummy Ways To Reinvent Your School Lunch

1) Hummus

Hummus is my absolute favourite! It’s protein packed and works as a fantastic substitute for mayo or mustard on sandwiches and wraps! It’s also super delicious to dip your veggies, and you can even find hummus in different flavors. Ranch dip you’re out! Hummus you’re in!

2) Fruit Parfait

Yogurt no longer has to be boring, glam it up! Make your very own fruit and yogurt parfait. You can add nuts, granola, fruit and a touch of honey for sweetness. I love to make fruit parfaits with Greek yoghurt because it’s a great source of healthy protein, which means it will keep you fuller longer.

3) Grapefruit


Sweet, sour and tangy! Half of a grapefruit is a great addition to your school lunch. It’s almost like dessert! Avoiding coating it in sugar and opt for a drizzle of all natural honey instead! YUM!

4) Eggs


Hard-boiled eggs are lifesavers! I try and always have a few ready to go in my fridge. They are the perfect grab and go addition to your lunch.

5) Spinach


The best green food! I’m a huge fan of spinach, yum! It’s a sneaky way to pack in some extra nutrition. Toss some in your smoothies, sandwiches, and wraps or make a salad, just make sure you always rinse your leaves well first.

6) Guacamole

Guacamole is delicious! Guac is perfect for dipping your carrot and celery sticks or for dipping some nacho chips. Try it spread on a turkey sandwich, yum!

7) Pizza

Make your favourite kind of pizza on naan bread instead of homemade pizza crust! It’s so easy and tasty! My favourite kind is BBQ chicken. Pizza can be enjoyed at lunchtime whether it’s cold or warm.

8) Flavoured Water

Watch out juice boxes, this is the new healthy trend! It’s super important to get meet your daily water requirements, but it doesn’t have to be boring! Grab an ice cube tray and fill it with some of your favourite fruit. Lemons, limes, oranges, raspberries and strawberries work wonderfully! I also love adding some mint leaves. Freeze your ice cubes and then you’re ready to go. Fill your water bottle and pop a few ice cubes in and there you go – homemade flavoured water with lots of yummy flavors!

Who said school lunches couldn’t be fun? They’re wrong! Enjoy your school lunch with these awesome, healthy tips! Bon Appétit!

  1. We are homeschoolers so we don’t make lunches for school per say but I love all the ideas you shared here and will use some of them at home for sure.

  2. My kids are too young for school, but these gave me some ideas for lunch at home. I feel like I make mac and cheese much too often. Thank you!

  3. You’ve got some creative ideas that would really make school lunch a lot more fun! I love guacamole and my kiddos are slowly growing their tastebuds to like it to…pretty soon we could probably try it in our school lunches!

  4. boring for sure. My kids are asking me for something different every day and I have run out of ideas. You offer some great suggestions. Not sure if I can get them to eat a grapefruit but hey, I can try!

  5. Wonderful ideas. The only ones to get a school lunch in my house is my kiddos, so I try to do different and fun things everyday but it gets a bit redundant !

  6. The picture of the fruits in the water was beautiful. My son is grown now, but I try to take a healthy lunch to work myself instead of eating out. This gave me some fun ideas.
