Lunch Box Ideas for the kids with printable Lunch box jokes! The kids will love these simple and tasty lunches using Marzetti Veggie Dips!

We’re slowly getting back into our regular routine now that the holidays are over. That means the kids are back to school and I’m back on lunch box duty. I usually prepare them the night before to make the morning a little less chaotic. The kids love it too because they’re able to help out. We put these four lunch boxes together in a matter of minutes. They’re packed full of fresh, vibrant food that they’ll actually eat.

One of their favorite ways to eat vegetables for lunch is dipping them in Marzetti® Ranch Dip Snack Packs. You can find them in the refrigerator aisle right next to the produce. They fit perfectly in all of our tupperware containers. And since they’re a generous amount, the kids can dip other items in them, like pizza, pita chips, pretzel thins, and sandwiches.

Kid Lunch Ideas

If you’re on the hunt for more lunch ideas, give these a try! You can easily customize them if you have picky eaters. Fill them with your kid’s favorite veggies. They can help grab items from the fridge, wash them and cut them (if they’re old enough). You can have them arrange them in the lunch boxes and store them in the fridge for the morning. When they’re not looking you can sneak a cute little note in there for them. Whether it’s a handwritten one or a cute little joke (SCROLL TO THE BOTTOM FOR SOME FREE PRINTABLE JOKES), I guarantee it will make their day!

  1. I use the blue cheese to dip my pizza. These lunches are inspiring me to be a little more creative (and healthy) with my own. I have not seen the little dip packs in my area : (

  2. I haven’t ever tried them, but I’m always needing ideas for lunch that isn’t a sandwich so I am going to buy some of these for my boys. Thank you!

  3. Our whole family loves the dip for our veggies! Especially in long car rides and travel situations. Great way to sneak in some veggies!

  4. These lunches look amazing! Just what I needed to see because I ha e been a lunch rut with my kids lunches! I love the dips with veggies any day! Thanks!

  5. The dips are just perfect sized, portable and convienent for dipping our veggies when we go on spontaneous picnics to the park!

  6. I love dipping my cauliflower in the Marzetti’s ranch dip!! I love fresh cauliflower for a snack or side dish. I love the lunchbox ideas!!

  7. I love taking them on picnics. I love dipping rolled up turkey, provolone, and a pickle in the ranch. They also make a caramel too I believe. Yum!

  8. So kid friendly! My daughter will literally eat Anything if it’s dipped in ranch. So easy to grab these along with some veggies for snacks on the go

  9. My daughter enjoys a healthy snack and so do I with her so we enjoy carrots and Ranch and she also enjoys mini pizzas and so do I.

  10. I’m wondering as a Canadian mom! We’re not allowed peanut products or buts of any kind at school? And no but butter substitute? So my ideas run thin! Could you give me some inspiration?
    Thanks

    1. You could do lots of fruits & veggies, ham & cheese sandwiches/rolls, cheese sticks. Hopefully, those help. It can get tricky, trying to come up with different things, but I just rotate different things.

    2. My kids like honey and cream cheese or strawberry cream cheese in their banana roll ups. We also use Flatout bread and granola in with the bananas.
