If you have a celiac child, packing lunches can feel extra challenging.
We’ve put together 15 fun and tasty lunchbox ideas to help get nutritious lunches packed with ease – because if you’re like me, it’s just nice for someone to take over on the idea front so I don’t have to think about it – for at least a little while.
What is Power Your Lunchbox
The mission is to empower families with recipes, tips, and more to help you eat a more nutritious and delicious lunch – at school, home, or the office! This year, the Healthy Family Project is proud to support United Fresh Start Foundation to support children’s accessibility to fresh fruits and vegetables.
This year you’re also able to nominate a favorite teacher for the chance to win 1 of 5 $250 Amazon gift cards by uploading three words that describe your teacher, their name and grade they teach, and your name and grade.
EVERY teacher nominated will receive promo codes for discounts on trending items on the popular website Etsy.

I’m planning grocery ideas now to keep my pantry and fridge stocked with appropriate foods to easily send in a lunchbox – hopefully taking away the stress of the early morning rush to pack a lunch.
I’d love to hear what you keep stocked at your house!
