My son is a senior in high school and I’ve found it challenging to come up with portable lunch options. It’s important to me that our family maintains a healthy lifestyle, so I want to make sure that his lunches are both nutritious and filling.
My son and I sat down and created a list of foods that he likes.
Then I went through the list and circled the ones that are portable.
The list is complete enough to keep a teen from complaining about a lack of good food.
Teen Lunch Ideas
Here are three recent lunches I have packed. Each lunch box holds 5 cups, which is quite a bit of food.
Lunch for Hungry Teens
Bagel Cream Cheese Lunch
This hearty lunch contains half of a whole wheat bagel stuffed with bacon ranch cream cheese spread.
It also has half of a peeled orange, edamame, Horizon™ Peanut Butter Sandwich Crackers, and a bottle of Horizon™ Organic Chocolate Protein Plus Milk. Find the cream cheese recipe here.
Hummus Dip Lunch
This fun lunch revolves around a cup of hummus dip. Pretzel twists, carrots, and celery go with hummus dips.
It has raspberries, chopped mango, Horizon™ Peanut Butter Sandwich Crackers, and a bottle of Horizon™ Organic Chocolate Protein Plus Milk.
Leftover Pizza Lunch
This lunch utilizes leftover pizza. Four pieces of white spinach & mushroom pizza will fill any teen.
There is also sliced apple, carrots & cucumber with ranch dip, Horizon™ Peanut Butter Sandwich Crackers, and a bottle of Horizon™ Organic Chocolate Protein Plus Milk.
When it comes to back to school snacks and drinks, I reach for Horizon products. Horizon™ Organic Chocolate Protein Plus Milk has 15 grams of protein per bottle.
That is something I can feel good about for my teen or any member of the family. These Horizon shelf-stable milk boxes are portable, so great on the go!
Horizon™ Sandwich Crackers contain real, organic ingredients. Not only do they help me pack lunch for hungry teens, but they are a great snack or for travel.
