From day one, many parents decide to pack their kids’ lunches merely because they want to make sure their kids get nutritious food at school. Are you that kind of parent? Take some thought into these hot & healthy lunch ideas for school and let me know what you think. This post is sponsored by BabbleBoxx.com.
Now that school is in session, it’s now time to plan hot & healthy lunches for the cold days ahead. Leftovers from the night before are the best, I think.
Hot & Healthy Lunch Ideas for School
My son started 3rd grade a couple of weeks ago. I told him that third grade is a big deal and that he has to study hard and that he will probably have homework. With him having to focus on the Star Tests this year, he needs his brain working well, and good healthy food for lunch will help with that. So this year we bought a thermos, and I plan to send him off to school when it gets a little cooler with hot, nutritious meals that he can enjoy at lunchtime. We haven’t done this before, so he is excited.
From hot lunches to ordering online, letting someone else do the shopping for you, to allergy-free snacks, these are healthy school lunch ideas to help you plan for an excellent year of good nutritional lunches for your kids.
Hot Thermos School Lunch ideas
Lundberg: White Rice & Quinoa
Who wants rice? You’ll love how convenient this entrée is to make. Dinner is ready in about 20 minutes or less. My 8-year-old gobbled it up.
Make the White Rice & Quinoa a meal or as a side dish, either way, it’s perfect to serve for those busy evenings when the kids have all kinds of social activities going on. Lundberg is vegan, organic, non-GMO, and gluten-free verified.
Did you know you can buy grass fed beef online? You can at EAT PRE. From Top Sirloin Steak and New York Strip Steak to 95% lean ground beef, Pre Brands is an online meat delivery service that can conveniently delivery your meats to you. My spaghetti never tasted so good, my son told me. I’d say this is a perfect hot thermos lunch for the next day, wouldn’t you?
EAT PRE is offering my readers two different discounts:
- Here’s a unique discount code to receive 10% off your order now through October 31st: FOREVERGREEN
- To celebrate Back To School – use code BTS40 for 40% off 85% and 80% lean ground beef. Hurry expires 9/21.
From dinner to next day’s school lunch – I paired Lundberg Quinoa Blend and Eat Pre lean ground beef together for our meal. Another perfect hot, healthy lunch for the next day. Hot lunch ideas are endless when paired with ground beef. Lundberg has added a few new entrees to their product list, so there are more options for our hot lunches right there.
School Lunch Ideas for Picky Eaters
Now that you have some hot meal ideas for school lunches let’s talk about snacks. Every kid’s lunch needs to include a snack – a healthy snack at that!

Not only are these snacks gluten-free, non-GMO project verified, but they are also school safe – free from the eight common allergens. My son (and I) ate these up before I could even get one in his lunch. Find out more about MadeGood and see all the varieties they offer.
Grocery Delivery – Talk About Convenience
Have you heard of this grocery delivery service? It’s different from what you might have used in the past. Shipt does the shopping for you and deliveries your groceries to you the same day. How convenient is that? It’s all online. You’ll choose which store you want them to shop, you’ll select your products and pay online, they do the shopping, and you’ll have your groceries brought to you by your shopper when and where it’s convenient for you. So shop healthy and have it all conveniently delivered to you.
I did use their service and am glad to tell you that my first-time experience was excellent. No flaws, no gaps, she got everything right, and the store that I chose had everything in stock. The delivery person communicated with me via text while she was in the store shopping for me. The only thing as of right now, their service is not available in my area so I had her delivery to my husband’s work and I met her there. You can choose your home address, work address, or any other address that’s convenient for you.
A perfect way to shop if you ask me. To get more information and to sign up, use this shipt promo code link to get $49 annual membership. https://signup.shipt.com/?membership_code=true&gift_code=K6BB92C54A1
