Week 4 Healthy Lunchbox Meal Plan

A week of delicious, easy, and healthy lunchbox meal plans that are perfect for your preschooler or elementary school child with options to modify for a toddler-friendly lunch.

I’m heading out of town for work this week and will be gone Tuesday afternoon through Thursday night so I’m planning and prepping lunchbox components ahead of time to make it easier for my husband to wash the Bentgo Kids trays and refill.

It’s only week 4 and my brain feels a little mushy today from the planning from (image what week 34 is going to feel like!) so I’ve been perusing my Pinterest Healthy and Fast Lunchbox Ideas for Kids board for inspiration. If you have a school lunch board or a favorite board that you follow, please share it in the comments so I can check it out!
