Spring means field trips and lots of special school functions, which also means special lunches. I love that our kids get to head out and experience hands-on field trips and enjoy a different learning perspective, but I’ll admit it also means I have to remember all the “field trip lunch rules.” This year I’m prepared with a Healthy Field Trip Lunch ideas that I know my kids will love.
Part of the field trip lunch rule is that everything must be disposable, it has to be in a paper sack and the kids name has to be on it. Because of allergies we can’t take peanut butter, which is easy for packing a disposable lunch and anything that needs to be kept cold is a pain because it has to be in a paper sack and well, those just get soggy when the ice pack melts in the Texas heat. So this year I decided to make it easy and delicious.
Kabobs are one of my kids favorite lunches. And I’ve found they are much more likely to eat it if it “looks” fun. I made mini sandwich skewers and added our favorite veggies. I made mini fruit skewers and froze them overnight. That way they will help keep the rest of the lunch cold without getting anything soggy. I bought disposable containers from the Dollar Tree to keep everything from getting squished in the paper sack. And to keep the kiddos nice and cool I threw in a Fruit Shoot juice. This fun hydration drink is perfect for field trips, it features an innovative no-spill cap making it easy for kids to be independent and on the go. And with no fructose corn syrup and no added sugar it’s a much better option than other flavored drinks.
I threw in a lunch box note to make our Field Trip Lunch extra special. Don’t forget the label, I used a chalkboard and wrote the kids name on it. And when lunch is all done, all he has to do is throw it all in the trash…yep every last bit of it.
