Do you have kids in school who bring their own lunch to school? Are you looking for new ideas for their school lunches?
This is my first year of creating school lunches for my daughter, Katie, who is in Kindergarten. I’ve learned a lot this year in preparing her school lunches and I’m always looking for new ideas for lunch for her.
Today on the blog I’m going to share with you three school lunch ideas with peanut butter. Sometimes I’ll make a simple sandwich with peanut butter and jelly or honey. But other times I like to switch things up make lunch fun with peanut butter.
3 School Lunch Ideas with Peanut Butter
1. Peanut Butter and Jelly Pancake Sandwich
If you have any leftover pancakes, use two larger pancakes or several small pancakes to make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. I added blueberry yogurt with blueberries and granola, grapes, and Bark Thins chocolate with pretzel pieces with the peanut butter and jelly pancake sandwich for the school lunch. Katie loves to have breakfast for lunch sometimes and this is a perfect way to use leftovers.
2. Peanut Butter Chocolate Ritz Cracker Sandwiches
All you need is Ritz crackers, peanut butter, and chocolate. I added a thin layer of peanut butter on each side of the crackers. I place pieces of chocolate on half of the crackers and then added the other crackers on top to create sandwiches. I added strawberries and blueberries, couple round pieces of cheese, and Pringles. This is definitely a really fun lunch. Peanut butter and chocolate takes great together in these peanut butter and chocolate Ritz cracker sandwiches.
3. Peanut Butter and Jelly Sushi
I used flatbread to create these peanut butter and jelly sushi. I spread peanut butter and jelly on half of each flatbread piece. I then rolled them up and cut each flatbread into four pieces. You can also add halves of raspberries and/or blackberries on top of each sushi piece. Katie likes to eat these sushi pieces with a fork, so she won’t get her fingers sticky. I added sugar snap peas, Doritos, and Oreos with the school lunch.
