Back to School Lunches – Lancaster, PA Style!
Including free printable notes to stick inside.
Hey Lancaster locals – with the kids going back to school at the end of the month, it’s time to gear up for another year of learning. Once you’ve collected your school supplies, stock up on great lunch ideas to keep your kids full and focused.
If your goal for this school year is to break away from the PB & J, try packing some of these local items in your child’s lunch for an authentic, nutritious, and most importantly, kid-friendly Lancaster County mid-day meal.
1] Rolling up turkey or ham is a great alternative to PB & J, and easy for little ones to eat.

2] Cube cheese into bite-sized pieces for extra calcium and protein

3] To add a crunch to their day, pack an individual size bag of Herr’s chips.

4] Not a chip fan? Pretzels are another salty alternative. After all, they are practically their own food group in Lancaster County with so many varieties to choose from.

5] A piece of fresh, locally-grown fruit, or vegetables cut up and served with hummus make a healthy and colorful snack.

6] For a special day like a birthday or just a TGIF treat, add in a mini whoopie pie from Shady Maple, or some Wilbur Buds.
