Now that you have a full arsenal of new breakfast recipes (no need to thank us), we think you’re ready to kick the lunch menu up a notch. For a little more variety in your life (and theirs), we hope you enjoy these Lunchtime Recipes for Success.

Try yummy Apple and Cheddar Quesadillas made with a twist of cinnamon to bring home that apple pie flavour. It’s a pie…it’s a sandwich…it’s a quesadilla? They’re easy to make, they pack well and you can eat them hot or cold. We love that the cheese holds them together so they’re not messy.

This Sweet Potato and Split Pea Soup is so hearty and filling all you need is a few crackers to accompany it for a balanced meal. Kids who like a warm lunch will love to bring this to school when the weather starts to turn (yes, it will happen).

In the age of nut-free lunches, cream cheese and bagels are the new PB and J for moms these days. Add some cucumber (for that veggie quotient) and make this stand-by sandwich taste better too.

Whip up a stash of these easy to make Focaccia Pizza Bites and watch how fast they get devoured. We recommend hiding them if you want them to stick around the kitchen long enough to make it into the lunch bags the next day.

That’s only four lunch ideas. We’ve got Lunchtime Recipes for Success. And we also have a handy printable school-lunch checklist.

    5 Back to School Lunches Your Children Won't Eat

    September means several things; the changing of the leaves, the cooling of the air, the migration of the geese and being bombarded with posts about "Healthy and Delicious Back to School Lunch Ideas!" While nice that I don't have to watch them reject their food for a while, I do equally hate unpacking it again at the end of the day after it has been sitting in a hot classroom for six hours.

    Back to School... School Lunch Ideas

    My "go to" lunch is French Toast, unsweetened apple sauce, and milk. I figure we have a whole grain, a protein, a fruit, and some dairy.
