Ideas for quick and easy School Lunches:

The best school lunch ideas are the ones that can be ready quickly and easily. Here are a few I've found recently:

Healthy Peanut Butter No-Bakes These might be my favorite of all the easy school lunch ideas! These are so healthy I eat them for breakfast, and would have no problem sending them in my kid's lunches. No added sugar and full of protein! Can be formed into bars or balls and customized in a variety of ways.

Pizza Muffins These can also be made and frozen ahead of time.
