Easy, healthy lunch recipes that kids will love.

Packing a healthy lunch is hard enough when you’re trying to get out of the house in the morning. And as more food products with peanuts and peanut butter are recalled, making lunch can be even more difficult.

Luckily there are many other healthy lunch recipes to choose from. We’ve put together five easy lunch recipes that will satisfy the most picky eater and keep you away from questionable nut products as well.

Quick Healthy Lunch Recipes:

  1. Strawberry & Cream Cheese Sandwich: Sliced strawberries and reduced-fat cream cheese come together in a sandwich for this quick and healthy lunchbox treat.
  2. Buffalo Chicken Wrap: Moms and Dads like wraps because they're neat and compact--so beware: ours is messy and spicy. This fiery combination of buffalo chicken in a modern wrap is guaranteed to drip. Get out the big napkins and have a ball!
  3. Mini Greek Pizza Muffins: Nearly everyone loves pizza and these mini muffins are totally portable too. All the flavors of a Greek pizza make these savory muffins bite-size treats for adults and kids alike.
  4. Pizza Roll-Up Bento Lunch: This easy pizza-inspired roll-up is a kid-pleaser and costs less than $3 per serving. Make crunchy vegetables more appealing by selecting colorful varieties like orange and purple cauliflower—and don’t forget the dip! Keep ’em smiling with watermelon cut into fun shapes with cookie cutters.
  5. Turkey & Pepper Roll-Up: Crunchy bell pepper strips rolled in deli turkey (you can use ham too) makes a simple and satisfying protein-packed pick-me-up.
