Stress Free
At Home Lunches 

Juggling working from home, as well as parenting full time is the obstacle all parents are facing right now. Although I’m not a parent, I am an aunt to a wonderful 7 year old, whose passion and fervor for activities rivals anyone I’ve ever met. And while I’m enjoying the extra FaceTime calls with him, I know my brother and sister-in-law are looking for anything to keep him occupied! Lunch time on the weekends has now become lunchtime all of the time and I’m here to help. I’ve rounded up 5 (mostly) healthy recipes that are delicious and easy for kids to help out with (hello distractions!), giving you that twenty minutes to devote to that conference call.

 
Black Bean and Corn Patties
By @cookingforpeanuts
These savory fritters are a great way to add in veggies and protein to keep your kid happy and healthy! This recipe is also the perfect way for both of you to get involved in the kitchen together, they shape the patties and you sear them off!

One Pot Cauliflower Pasta with Crispy Bacon
By @daenskitchen

This easy, weeknight dinner turns into great leftovers for lunch the next day! And while the cheese and the bacon may entice your little one, you know you’re sneaking in a little veg with the cauliflower.

Summer Chickpea Smash Sandwich
by @rachelgurjar

Another great recipe to get the kids involved in the kitchen! Have them mash up the chickpeas while you do the slicing. And it’s the perfect kitchen sink sandwich. Don’t have cucumber? Throw in celery or red pepper.

French Bread Pizzas with Pepperoni
by @meatballssmama

Who doesn’t love french bread pizza? If this person exists, I have yet to meet them and I’m not sure we’d be good friends. This throwback to the 90’s microwaveable treat gets a home makeover, using a baguette, shredded cheese and tiny pepperoni cups to have your kid (and yourself) smacking your lips at lunch!

Tuna and Vegetable Onigirazu
by @saltnpepperhere

My nephew has had a serious obsession with nori (seaweed sheets) since he was a little babe! I love the idea of tucking tuna inside of here, along with fresh veggies, into one neat little package. Feel free to leave the kimchi out of the kids version (but highly recommended in the adult’s lunch!).
