Both of my kids are vegan. They are in preschool and 2nd grade and are both picky eaters which in one way, makes it kind of easy because they don't care for a lot of new foods or variety. We have a quick list of simple, palatable foods that they like as mains above. Then I fill the lunchbox with fruit, snacks, and a little something sweet every day. Here are 30 of our Vegan Kids Lunches:

What kind of lunchbox is it?


Just in case anyone was wondering what the lunchbox is, we use the Planetbox Lunchbox and I put a small washcloth so any of the moisture from fruit doesn't leak out the back when it is being carried, and they have something to wipe their hands on for lunch. Fruit can be put into the little container that comes with the Planetbox and it fits into the front pouch but I think this is easier for my smaller kids right now. The ice brick I got from Target.



This is how I wrap my Planetbox. The towel is good to catch any fruit juice or moisture. It's also good for a napkin at lunchtime.
