Now that school is in full swing you are probably getting the new routine down- including school lunches. While we will be the first to admit there are tried and true lunchbox classics, we challenge you to spice up your lunchbox game this week (and get resounding  “A+” from you kids) with a few of these star lunch recipes.

SUNSET® Zima® Wraps

We love the simplicity of the good-old PB&J, but it can also be an uninspiring lunchbox addition. Full of brain boosting veggies, like our sunny Zima® tomatoes, these wraps are full of flavor and nutrients. By cutting the veggies ahead of time, even your younger kids can assemble them for themselves - making it easy for everyone to wrap and roll out of the house.  #Momhack use these wraps as a grab-and-go snacking option perfect for car rides and after-school activities!

Perfect as a side dish for packed lunches, this salad sure to keep your kids feeling full till the last bell.  If you want to completely switch up your lunch game, ditch the traditional sandwich main and make this salad the star of the show! #Protip make a large batch at the start of the week and you’ll have lunch taken care of for the whole week.

One Sweet® Cuban Sandwich

Teenagers can be hard to impress, but this loaded sandwich will earn you a gold star. All the ingredients can easily be prepped on Sunday for quick assembly throughout the week- but be sure to hide some for yourself because they will disappear fast!
