You may pride yourself on being a creative cook, but just because your food looks Pinterest-worthy聽(and you鈥檝e got an Insta feed to prove it) doesn鈥檛 always mean it鈥檚 perfect for packing in your preschooler鈥檚 lunch. Yeah, those locally foraged morels seared with an accompaniment of organic couscous and whipped lemon zest foam are pretty rad when you have your pretentious聽boss over for dinner, but they鈥檙e not for your kiddo. Not to worry 鈥 there are plenty of ways to prep your little鈥檚 meals without resorting聽to PB & Js again. Pack a kid-friendly culinary punch with these pint-sized lunch ideas.

1. Vegetarian Wrap With Provolone and Roasted Red Pepper Hummus:聽Sandwiches are sooo 2007. Your preschooler isn鈥檛 feeling聽the flat stack; she wants something more. So we say, roll it up! Grab a flatbread, tortilla, or pita and put whatever your kid craves inside of it. Follow this healthy/yummy recipe, or come up with your own completely creative concoction. (via Rachel Cooks)

2. Crackers and Cream Cheese Bento Box: Your preschooler kind of freaks when one food touches another. Hey, that鈥檚 okay. A bento box is the perfect solution to the separation issue. Fit the crackers into one side and cream cheese into yet another. Amazing! Nothing touches. You did it. You solved the lunch touch quandary and just became the mama of the year. (via Twin Dragonfly Designs)

3. Pac-Man Bento Box: Cucumbers suck. At least, that鈥檚 what your preschooler thinks. She鈥檇 rather eat dirt on her salad than add on more green things. Magically transform her regular ol鈥 food into a Pac-Man-themed lunch. She鈥檒l love these adorable eats. (via Happiness is Homemade)

4. Lunch Box Kabobs:聽Cool kabobs are a super-fun meal-time treat! Try these easy lunch box fillers for your little one鈥檚 next meal. That little stick that spears your preschooler鈥檚 foods makes her whole lunch just that much cooler. Keep in mind, safety is absolutely essential here. Use blunt-tipped skewers and make sure your child understands how to eat food from a stick. Add on anything your child wants. This can include sliced fruits (add in a yogurt dip), veggies, cheese cubes, or chilled grilled chicken. (via It Is a Keeper)

5. Marbled聽Rainbow Toast: Your very visual preschooler is all about her colors. Create a rainbow in her lunchbox with all kinds of hues. Group red cherry tomatoes and red peppers, yellow peppers and squash bites, green beans and peas, blueberries, purple grape slices, and pink watermelon to create a rainbow-rific meal. Organize the munchies in a ROYGBIV (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet) pattern. Or you could get super-creative and make rainbow toast that you add fruit and nut butter to! (via A Beautiful Mess)

6. Emoji Oranges:聽These DIY silly faces are sure to grab your kiddo鈥檚 attention. Turn oranges into awesome emojis and be a kids鈥 kitchen star. (via Desert Chica)

7. Tomato and Fried Provolone Sandwich: Hmm. Packing your preschooler a pizza for lunch isn鈥檛 the healthiest of options. Instead of going with the grease, make your own upgraded version. This open-faced tomato sandwich is kind of like pizza,聽but possibly even better. (via Smitten Kitchen)

8. Pumpkin Flax Granola: Switch things up and serve a batch of breakfast for lunch! Instead of a sandwich,聽pack up a thermos filled with yogurt and homemade granola. Add sides of sliced fruit, raisins, or mini muffins. (via Natasha鈥檚 Kitchen)
