How to Spice up Your Lunch Box and Make it More Fun

Packing a lunch box doesn't have to be a monotonous task.  Opening your lunch box can even deliver surprise and delight! With a little creativity and some fun ideas, you can transform your everyday lunch into an exciting and enjoyable experience. In this blog post, we will explore some interesting and creative ways to pack a lunch box that will make it more visually appealing, appetizing, and fun to eat.

Bento Boxes:

Bento boxes are a popular Japanese lunch box style known for their compartmentalized design. Use these boxes to create visually pleasing and well-balanced meals. Fill each compartment with a variety of colorful foods, such as sliced fruits, veggies, cheese cubes, and bite-sized sandwiches. You can even use cookie cutters to shape sandwiches or fruits into fun shapes like stars or animals.  Vitaminis make a fun vitamin-rich Bento Box compartment add!

Colorful Skewers:

Give your lunch a playful twist by assembling colorful skewers. Thread cherry tomatoes, chunks of grilled chicken, cheese cubes, and pineapple onto skewers. Not only does this make the lunch box more visually appealing, but it also adds a fun element of assembling and eating the skewers.

DIY Wraps:

Instead of packing a regular sandwich, offer a DIY wrap experience. Pack whole-grain tortillas or lettuce leaves along with a variety of fillings, such as deli meats, cheese, sliced veggies, and condiments. Let the recipient assemble their wrap at lunchtime, adding a personalized touch and making it interactive and exciting.

Salad in a Jar:

Make salads more appealing by packing them in a jar. Layer colorful ingredients, starting with dressing at the bottom, followed by protein (such as grilled chicken or beans), veggies, and greens on top. When it's time to eat, simply shake the jar to mix the dressing and enjoy a fresh and crisp salad.

Creative Snack Packs:

Add a variety of small, tasty snacks to the lunch box for added fun. Pack a trail mix with nuts, dried fruits, and chocolate chips. Include mini cheese crackers, yogurt-covered pretzels, or even homemade energy balls. These mini snacks offer variety and keep the lunch box interesting.  Top it off with a Vitaminis for a sweet shot of nutrition!

Lunch box packing doesn't have to be a mundane task, and opening your lunch box can feel like a fun surprise! Transform your lunchtime experience into something exciting and enjoyable. From bento boxes to themed lunches and surprise notes, there are endless possibilities to make your lunch box more interesting. So, let your creativity flow, experiment with different ideas, and elevate your lunchtime routine with these delightful and entertaining approaches!  And throw a Vitaminis in to top it off and make sure you’re getting the vitamins, fiber and probiotics to support healthy Immune Support and Gut Health!
