Healthy kids’ lunch ideas using PlanetBox lunch boxes.

A friend on Instagram reminded me that I haven’t posted lunchbox ideas in quite awhile. I do often post our lunches on Instagram as I’m dashing out the door to get to two schools on time. As the school year nears an end and many of us are in a lunch packing rut, I wanted to share some fun recent lunch boxes from our kitchen. I also know that most of us will be packing lunches for summer camps. Many of you have asked where I get the fabulous lunch boxes I use. They are from Planet Box. I have used many many lunch systems for my kids over the past few years and this is by far my favorite. A few of the reasons I love PlanetBox:


  • They are eco friendly
  • They make packing creative, colorful lunches easy and fun
  • They are easy to clean. Mine go right into the dishwasher after school.
  • They come with great little condiment containers that fit nicely into the main container
  • They are ideal for all ages. I pack these for park and beach days as well as grown-up work days.

My girls love star fruit, so sometimes I’ll add it to their lunches for a special treat. Tiny veggie cutters make cute shapes out of veggies, cheese, etc. I like sandwich cutters too.


Hummus Cucumber Wraps are a favorite with my kiddos. And the cherries right now? Glorious!

To make the wraps, I slather some hummus onto a piece of lavash bread or tortilla, and place strips of cucumber at one end. Then roll up and slice! Add any other veggies your kids like.


Rainbow carrot coins, tangerines and raspberries, cucumber and tomatoes, egg salad sammie.

PlanetBox recently released their new BottleRocket water bottle, which we also love. It fits perfectly in the PlanetBox pouch and is easy for little fingers to open and drink from.


Hummus and Dippers. The dippers: snap peas and bell pepper, carrots and broccoli, and pita chips.

Full Disclosure: All opinions are mine. I now get a 10% commission on PlanetBox sales because the company loved the lunches I was posting and wanted to see more. Thank you so much for helping to keep this blog going.
