31 Plant Based Lunch Ideas

Anyone else not quite ready to be making a lunch again every day? I was SO excited when school took that off my plate in September.

To help myself keep my six and four year old fed this summer we’ll be having a sandwich calendar. We’ll rotate through these. Along side we’ll have a fruit or veg to munch and probably veggie straws or pretzels and water or Ripple Kids Plant Based Milk.

OK – let’s get to the list!
