Kids are spending a lot more time at home and so are parents. The difference is, many parents are being asked to work remotely. That means, parents just don’t have time to make lunch for kids who are stuck at home. Luckily, there are plenty of easy lunches for kids to make all on their own. These lunches are not only easy but that means clean up is a breeze as well. Kids can make their own lunches while parents are working remotely and they can even clean up after themselves.
Making easy lunches for kids is never an issue but finding lunches kids can make on their own is an entirely different story.

Kids are like adults in that skill levels will vary. However, these easy lunches for kids come with few ingredients. There may be a few recipes that require sharp tools and it is up to parents to decide if their kids can handle the responsibility. Still, these recipes are all very easy and kids love to eat them.

There is something else that makes these recipes even better. Kids love the sense of accomplishment they get when they make their own meals. Especially if they haven’t made their own meals before. This is a great opportunity to teach kids the importance of knowing what to eat, when to eat it, and how to make it on their own.
