Homeschool Lunch Recipes for Kids

Homeschooling is a hard job and adds to the stress of parents. If you are facing it too and want to reduce the rising stress, you should try not to make lunchtime another hassle. Here are a few easy homeschool lunch recipes for kids that you can try to make things easier while ensuring that your kids have the nutrition they need.

Ø  Quesadillas or gourmet grilled cheese

You just need to add some fun toppings your kid will love. Please put it in the pan for some time, and it's done. It's super easy and quite delicious.

Ø  Baked beans

You can go for either canned or homemade baked beans. All you need to do is toast them.

Ø  Bagels and cream cheese and soup

Again, you can go for canned or homemade options.

Ø  Breakfast to Lunch

You can also serve some cool breakfast meals for lunch. It can be anything your kid loves, like scrambled eggs with chopped fruit, whole wheat pancakes, canned fruit salad, garlic toast, and even cooked meats like ham, sausages, bacon, etc.

Ø  Italian Meatballs

Another favorite option for most kids is making the meatballs interesting by adding different sauces to them. Serve with veggies and rice. You can also switch up meatballs and choose beef, chicken, turkey, and pork.

Ø  Mini Pizzas

If your little one loves pizza (most kids do!), you can use pita or naan bread to make a quick lunch. Add various toppings like mushrooms, corn, meats and combine them with different cheese and sauces.

Ø  Mac and Cheese

When you are short on time, you can depend on an all-time favorite of Mac and Cheese. Even adults would love it!
