Real Food Lunch Box (Pre planning)

My Bobbiesue (1st grader) is doing great on her no sugar diet. Her behavior problems have went away for the most part. However school is starting in a week and a half and she will need to bring a lunch box every day.

Luckily I have came up with some awesome ideas for her. They consist of real food, and a low sugar. The best part is that they are frugal.  Real food can be affordable if you put your mind to it.

So this is her meal plan for the first week of school.


  • Peanut butter and jelly roll ups
  • Strawberries
  • Celery
  • Apples
  • Flavored Water


  • Turkey and cheese roll ups
  • Grapes
  • Carrots
  • Pretzels
  • Apple Juice


  • Cheese and crackers
  • Turkey
  • Carrots
  • Pretzels
  • Homemade peanut butter granola bar
  • Applejuice


  • Peanut butter and jelly roll ups
  • Grapes
  • Trail Mix
  • Celery


  • Pasta Salad (noodles with parmesan cheese)
  • Rolled up Ham
  • Strawberries
  • Carrots
  • Garlic Bread Chips

I hope this helps you think of some real food ideas for your child’s lunch box. It can be super frugal too you just need to think creatively.

    Great post! My daughter is super picky plus lactose intolerant so her lunch meals look the same because she doesn’t like anything the school offers and wants to control what she eats which is veggies and fruits most of the time.
