Need school lunch ideas for kids? Pack breakfast cereal for lunch, they will love this twist on their meal at school!
We’re getting close to the end of the school year. When it comes to packing lunch, my kids are getting harder and harder to please. They get tired of the same ol’ turkey, cheese and fruit, and I don’t have time to make those cute little bento boxes that I always see the super-moms making. So what’s a parent to do? We need more school lunch ideas for kids!
Pack breakfast cereal for lunch!
I have been partnering with Kellogg’s to share and I loved the idea that Kellogg’s shared, so I had to try it out myself. My kids go batty for breakfast, so why not send some to school with them? With Kellogg’s single serve cereals, I can throw one into a lunch box to-go! I like that these are portioned, so no over eating. Also, Kellogg’s cereals are made with whole grains and other essential vitamins, so with fruit and low fat milk, this is a pretty balanced meal. This was one of those OMG-why-didn’t-I-think-of-that moments!
So here’s what you need:
- 1 Kellogg’s single-serve cereal bowls
- 1 small bag diced strawberries, blueberries, or other fruits
- 1 portable low fat milk, soy, or almond milk
- 1 disposable spoon
- 1 napkin
Some kids have bigger appetites, so pack an extra bag of fruit that they love, or add an extra snack item. I am happy that my kids loved their lunches this week!
Would your kids love to eat breakfast for lunch?

What a great idea! My son would be surprised to open his lunch and see cereal. 🙂
Great idea, don’t forget to toss in some veggies too. I know that if I eat cereal by itself sometimes I end up sugar crashing in a few hours. The veggies will help reduce the chances of this happening to your child plus it adds another food group to promote healthy eating.
Thanks for the idea! I think a bag of carrots or celery sticks would be a perfect side!
Holy Moly…in all my years of packing lunch, honest to goodness, I never thought to do this.
You totally rock! Thanks for giving me an idea.
