Kids’ Lunch Board

Ideas

With kids home all summer, it means more meals and sometimes even more complaining. We’ve all heard kids say, “This again?” even when we work hard to prepare fun, new meals. This summer, we can work less to create delicious meals with a Kids’ Lunch Board.  
 
Kids’ Lunch Boards combine all the things that kids love and that you have around the house. The board gives kids options on what they want to eat and how much of it they eat. The best part is the board has an array of both super healthy options (like fruits and vegetables) and more filling options (like small sandwiches and salty snacks). You can mix in sweeter options like Nutella to pair with pretzels or chocolate chips with the salty snacks.  

Kids’ Board Ingredient Inspiration 

  • Small Sandwiches 
    • PB&J cut into shapes​ 
    • Meats (turkey, ham) and cheese  
  • Salty Snacks 
    • Goldfish 
    • Pretzels 
    • Popcorn 
    • Nuts 
  • Dips 
    • Peanut butter​ 
    • Nutella 
    • Hummus 
    • Ranch 
  • Fruits 
    • Banana coins​ 
    • Apple slices 
    • Oranges

    • Blueberries 
  • Bite-size Veggies 
    • Carrots 
    • Celery

Kids will love helping arrange the board as much as they will love eating it. Use Chinet® Cut Crystal® to separate ingredients with more moisture (like fruits and vegetables) from dry ingredients (like crackers and snacks). Let kids eat straight from the board or have them pile their meal onto Chinet® Classic White® dinner or compartment plates. 

Summer can be fun for kids and parents but sometimes it takes a little creativity to change things up a bit. Change up your kids’ lunch with this easy and delicious Kids’ Lunch Board.
