7 Vegetarian School Lunch Box Ideas for Kids

Veggie Sushi

Vegetable sushi is available at most grocery stores now, but you can personalize it with your child’s favorite veggies at home (and it’s also a lot less expensive than store-bought versions). Making hand rolls is especially easy. Another fun option is inari, which is simply a soybean wrapper stuffed with rice. For those mornings when assembling and rolling sushi is not happening, have the makings of a deconstructed sushi bowl on hand. The night before: prepare some rice and toss with a minimal amount of sesame oil or brown rice vinegar to keep rice from sticking and clumping together. Cube some seasoned tofu, and thinly slice carrots, cucumbers, red peppers, and any other veggies your child will chomp on. Throw it all in a container and drizzle some teriyaki sauce on top along with strips of nori.

    I love these ideas for lunches but it always drives me nuts when dishes are displayed beautifully on plates, dishes etc. The reality is tupperwares, with all ingredients mixed together. And that makes a difference for how kids feel about the food they eat!!n Same dsih, different appearance = less interest from the kids.

    Not to worry — pack these lunches in little containers like the ones that come with Kids Konserve kits or Wean Cubes, a segmented box like Planet Box or a bento box style. See some ideas here: http://bit.ly/oAjcL3
