Non-Sandwich Lunch Ideas

This question stumps us all from time to time: What can I have for lunch besides sandwiches?

Through the school year we always tend to over do it on the sandwich. It’s a standard for a reason, but that gets boring and too repetitive.

Over the summer months I don’t even think one sandwich was made in this house, and already the kids are groaning at the thought of going back.

The trick is, mix it up more. Sandwiches are good, but let’s aim for 2-3 a week instead of 5. Yet what do you send for school lunches besides sandwiches? Bookmark this as your school year saviour!

Here is a collection of non-sandwich school lunch ideas that are interesting variations that keep everyone’s appetites healthy and happy, and best of all – reduce the complaining!
