lunchbox recipes

This is my first time posting lunchbox recipes and I know it will not be my last. I don’t know why I waited so long. Maybe perhaps because I didn’t have the right lunchbox!

I love this Yumbox lunchbox. What I love the most about these lunchboxes is that they are BPA-free, phthalates-free, leakproof and simple to pack. The tray is also removable for easy cleaning which is important to me. After a few times using this box you will appreciate that feature.

My 4 year old loves her Yumbox. All her food is packed neatly and easy to access.

For some of us, I know it is not school season just yet but my kids are currently attending summer camp and with that it involves packing lunch.

I always keep my lunchbox recipes simple, nutritious and somewhat colorful. This way it is more appealing to my kids when it is time to eat their lunch. Which kid doesn’t like peanut butter and jelly? My version was actually using whole wheat tortillas instead of regular bread. This way I was able to roll it up and fit it in the Yumbox much better.

I also made a nut trial mix, which my kids love. Nuts are healthy, high in protein, minerals and healthy fats.

Of course I added some fruit to their lunch. This time around was organic blueberries. They love any kind of berries so I make sure I always add some because I know they will get eaten.

Packing an assortment of veggie skewers is always a fun way for my kids to eat their lunch. Likely for me both my kids like cheese so I tend to make cheese and tomato skewers quite often, only this time I added some cucumbers.

The sky is the limit when it comes to preparing lunch for the little ones but this Yumbox is the perfect vessel to pack their goodies.

For the whole wheat tortillas just spread the peanut butter followed by the jelly and roll it up tightly. Cut into small pieces and place it in the Yumbox. A word of advice is to spread the peanut butter and jelly at least 2 inches away from the edge. I didn’t and my mixture come out while I was rolling the tortillas. No biggie but I created a bit of a mess!

  1. I love any combination of tomato and cheese! Thanks for a great recipe :)

    • If you like some spice, I add a slice of pepper jack cheese, then proveloni, Monterey Jack, Muenster, Swiss, whatever cheese you like.  In summer, when my tomatoes are growing, I eat these by the dozen!!!  Hope this helps!  Blessings!!!

  2. Trying this out right now for lunch :)

  3. I’ve been eating this my whole life (I’m 55). I use extra sharp cheddar simply because it’s my favourite cheese and I always keep frozen bread dough on hand so I can make fresh bread every few days. I use my own home grown heirloom tomatoes whenever possible because of their incredible flavor. This is so simple yet so fabulous.

  4. Baking them also is an option…get toasted bottom!!! Been making these for as long as I can remember…always a big hit in our home!!!

  5. I’ve been making these for years but like Candy I use sharp cheddar. I do add one more ingredient – I put mayo on the bread, then tomato and cheese on top.

  6. I’ve also been making these for a long time, and think they’re a delicious snack. The only difference is that I toast my bread first, butter it very lightly and then add the cheese and tomato, topped with salt and pepper. It only needs to go under the broiler for a couple of minutes.
