Whether your kids are in day camp or mommy/daddy camp, lunchtime is primetime. It’s a fun daily bonding opportunity and a chance to practice making conversation, table manners, patience, independence, and other skills.


To get them to the table (and keep them there!), the food has to be good. If you’re still making last month’s cream cheese sandwiches day in and day out, your kids (and you!) are probably ready for a change.


That’s where we come in. The simple and delicious lunch recipes in this roundup are eye-catching, kid-tested, and super simple to prepare on a hectic weekday morning. Enjoy!
