Lunch Ideas for Kids

Do you ever struggle with what to make your kids for lunch? I know I do. You want to make food that is nutritious and delicious, yet something that your kid can eat quickly. Most kids today that go to school away from home have less than 30 minutes to eat their lunch.

I have been researching new ideas for kid lunches. This is just a short list of kid-friendly lunch ideas. If you have any ideas you would like to share please do so. I know myself and other readers of this blog would be delighted to have new kid-friendly lunch ideas.
