5 Park-Friendly Kid Lunches

 It’s that time of year when we go to the park 2-3 times a week.  My poor kids get so sick of the usual “Peanut Butter Sandwich” lunch we take with us to the park!  I thought I’d gather a few ideas to help mix it up and keep it easy.  Here are 5 park-friendly kid lunches:
I really like the idea of bringing sandwich kebobs because my younger daughter doesn’t love to eat meat and cheese sandwiches.  I think that if I present it like this, it will make it more fun for her and she will eat it all gone.  Plus, I love the side of yogurt.

These banana roll-ups are a very simple idea.  You can use peanut butter, nutella, or almond butter, like used here.  I especially love how these are bite-sized.

Making your own lunchables and using cupcake liners to divide all of the food is genius.  My girls love making their own cracker sandwiches, so they will have fun with these!

I am loving the idea of pizza lunchables!  I love pita bread and think that it’s a unique and different thing for kids to eat at the park.  I would add some turkey pepporonis to this lunchable and my girls will love to make their own!
We have made these apple sandwiches before, my girls call them “apple donuts”!  We just spread peanut butter over the top.  I am anxious to try the wheat donuts (that aren’t deep-fried by the way)!  The recipe is kind of like a wheat pancake recipe.  Check it out.


Funbites is a mechanism that makes cutting shapes super-easy!  You can cut almost any food to make it fun for your kids!  Order yours at and type in SWEETCHARLI to get 20% off your order.

Hopefully that gives you a few ideas on how to make your lunches for park day a little more interesting.  I am counting on my girls NOT being sick of peanut butter sandwiches by the time Summer is over this year!  Can’t wait to try these park-friendly lunches!
