Easy Lunch Ideas for Tots and Preschoolers

As homeschoolers, it’s not often that we need to pack a lunch. Sometimes we take a field trip that requires us to pack one, but most days we eat lunch at home.

However, I have found that make-ahead lunches are still a great idea for our homeschool! Preparing meals ahead of time can head off the ‘hangry’ experience. You know, hungry + angry (due to the hunger)= hangry. Been there? Me, too.

So, perhaps in the upcoming weeks, you could prepare a few of these easy lunch ideas ahead of time. Pull them out and lunch is served. A quick and easy way to curb the hunger quickly at lunch time.

It’s also helpful for getting you through the middle-of-the-day lunch break and back to the books or on to something more fun.

I’ve gathered recipes, fun ideas, and planning tools in this list, in hopes that they will help you get started with your own make-ahead lunches for your homeschool preschool.
