Creative School Lunches to End the School Year with a Bang! - #HormelFamily

As our minds are already on summer, it’s easy to put school on the backburner. With almost a full month left of school, it’s still important to find ways to keep your children’s lunches fresh, exciting and healthy. Don’t let your creativity and the importance of keeping your children’s meals fun and different disappear!

Here are a few recipes from Hormel Foods Test Kitchen Director Joan Hanson that will be sure to keep the kids happy and may even help you switch-up your own lunchtime routine! Joan has recommended these recipes herself as fun ways to spice up end of the school year lunches.

Crisscross Ham and Cheese Sandwich

Three-Cheese Chili Pup Cups

Barbeque Chicken Tortilla Pizzas

If you’re in a time crunch, another great option is Hormel® Compleats® microwave meals! Available in over 30 varieties, pop them in the microwave and they are ready in less than 90 seconds!
