The Aloo Poha when packed along with Cheese & Walnuts is a quick and simple snack box that kids are able to eat in a  jiffy. I typically make the poha which has a sweet and sour flavor, that not only adds to the taste, but also gives them the added energy for the day. Keeping small portions, helps the children to focus on their food and complete them without wasting it.

The Rava Dhokla when packed along with Cheese & Almonds is a quick and simple snack box that kids are able to eat in a  jiffy. First reason is that it's easy to eat. They can simply hold it in one hand and gobble it up. You can even keep some jam or chutney by the side for them to dip the dhokla and give it an additional taste.

The Kuthiraivali Upma Kozhukattai Recipe is a twist to the traditional Kozhukattai recipe and is a healthy lunch box that you can put together with a little planning. You could make the upma the previous night and steam in the morning to give it that added freshness and softness. Pack the Kuthiraivali Upma Kozhukattai along with either a chutney or Idli Milagai Podi and along with curd rice or a bowl of yogurt.

Kids School Lunchbox Ideas - Healthy Penne Pasta with Creamy Pumpkin sauce makes great saucy and creamy lunch box for children and even adults. I have used a Durum Wheat Pasta and the addition of the creamy pumpkin sauce adds to the nutrition for their lunches. The addition of stir fried broccoli in the pasta, gives them the added nutrients and fiber needed for their growth and development. 

The Dal Makhani & Paratha combo is a favorite with the kids and they simply love to dip the parathas into the creamy dal. I most often also pack the box with some plain yogurt or curd rice to make the meal complete and making their lunch box filling and nutritious. I most often make the dal the previous evening and the dough for the paratha is also kept ready. In the morning, I just pack in the dal and make the paratha fresh to pack into the lunch box.

School Lunch Box Ideas and Recipes: The Pav Bhaji is one a great dosh when cooked right, has all the goodness of vegetables and the pav buns add to the carbohydrates giving the required energy to sit through the classes and the day. I like to pack such dishes along with some comfort food like curd rice as this helps them to digest the pav bhaji and gives them the yogurt protein as well. 

Note: When making the Pav Bhaji for children, I make is less spicy, so that children are able to have it with ease at school. Pack small portions so children don't get overwhelmed with a lot of food.

Kids School Lunch Box Ideas: Conchiglie Al Forno with Carrots and Basil recipe is made from a shell type pasta that is smaller that its larger shell counterparts. This creamy sauce along with cheese is tossed along with carrots and basil giving it delicious taste and a creamy texture. This pasta stays perfect until lunch giving the children the carbs, proteins and vitamins through the pasta, cheese and vegetables.
