13 December 2023

Blog / Back to School: Feeding Fussy Eaters

With back-to-school in full swing, parents face the challenge of preparing tasty and nutritious school lunches that even the pickiest eaters will enjoy. To help you ace the lunchbox test, we’ve put together a list of kid-friendly foods that are perfect for school lunches. From classics like cheese pizza to creative options like cornflake nuggets, these dishes are sure to please even the fussiest kiddos.

Back to School: Feeding Fussy Eaters

1. Classic Cheese Pizza

Cheese pizza is a timeless kid-favorite. It’s simple, it’s yummy, and it’s perfect for school lunches. For an extra tasty twist, give Oggi’s Quattro Formaggi pizza a try. It’s gluten-free crust is loaded with four delicious cheeses that are bound to satisfy your little one’s taste buds.

2. Easy-Prep Turkey Cheese Pinwheels

Turkey cheese pinwheels are not just delicious; they’re also super convenient. Whip up a batch ahead of time for a stress-free morning. Roll turkey slices and cheese into a tortilla or flatbread, then slice them into bite-sized pinwheels.

3. Hearty Tortellini Soup

Tortellini soup is so comforting, and it’s a breeze to pack in a thermos for school lunch. For a quick recipe, pair your broth with Oggi’s Quattro Formaggi Tortellini – not only is it gluten-free, but it also has no artificial preservatives and is made with non-GMO ingredients.

4. Veggie-Packed Pasta Salad

Pasta salad is a sneaky way to get those veggies in. You can toss in colorful bell peppers, cherry tomatoes, and cucumber slices for added nutrition. Choose your kid’s favorite dressing to make sure they devour those greens.

5. Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich

The classic peanut butter and banana sandwich is a staple for many kids. If allergies are a concern, swap the peanut butter for seed butter. It’s an easy and nutritious option that keeps your child fueled throughout the school day.

6. Cornflake Chicken Nuggets

Cornflake-crusted chicken nuggets are a healthier twist on the classic. The crispy cornflake coating adds a ton of crunch (without any frying) making these nuggets a hit at lunchtime. Serve them with a dipping sauce for added fun.

7. Cream Cheese and Cucumber Bagels

A simple yet satisfying option for both breakfast and lunch is a bagel with cream cheese and sliced cucumbers. Creamy meets crunchy in this delicious combo that’s perfect for busy mornings.

8. Cauliflower Mac and Cheese

Mac and cheese is a kid-friendly classic that can be made healthier with a simple twist. Swap out traditional macaroni with cauliflower for a nutritious, veggie-packed version. Kids still enjoy all the cheesy-goodness, while getting a more balanced meal.

As you gear up for the school year, remember that feeding fussy eaters can be an adventure in itself. These kid-friendly meal ideas are just the beginning! Don’t hesitate to get creative and use these ideas as a starting point. With a little experimentation and a lot of love, you’ll find the perfect balance between tasty and nutritious meals that will keep your little one smiling through lunchtime.
