It’s crazy to think summer comes to an end for so many kids next week! So if your kids are going back to school next week, you may be thinking about how you are going to fill their lunch boxes! Today on Food Live with Holly & Chris, we shared 5 Back to School Lunch Ideas for Picky Eaters!

Holly and I are also so honored to be invited to the Texas Pinners Conference & Expo on September 9th & 10th. We are going to be doing one of our Family Food Live with Holly & Chris shows live at the conference on Friday, September 9th at 12 noon. Please join us at the Arlington Convention Center!

If you want to learn more about it or pick up some tickets, go here now. Please use the code: FAMILYFOOD so we know you’ll be coming. You can also use the code: FREESHOPPING to get free access to the trade show floor.

Here’s a look at 5 lunches we are putting together for picky eaters! We will assemble these lunches live!

5 Back to School Lunch Ideas for Picky Eaters

Tomato Feta Salad

Here’s another side to add to any meal. And if you already purchased a cooked roast chicken for the fried rice, you can serve the rest with this Tomato Feta Salad. It’s super easy.

Find out what you need to make this salad here.

For each of the lunches, we used these BPA free lunch containers .

Sorta like home-made Lunchables! I'm playing Mr. Mom this week so this article was already helpful :-)

My daughter would love these!

@Runnergirl12 PBJ is a safe bet when your kids will eat peanut butter, or Jelly, or Bread. I have a picky eater who will eat none of those things!

How do you make the piZza rolls?
