10 Easy Camp Lunch Ideas

These easy kids lunches require minimal prep time, involve little (to no) cooking, and are easy to store safely in a lunch bag.

Pack a simple, yet fun, lunch including Uncrustables, drinkable yogurt, Amara Smoothie Melts, strawberries, and cucumbers.


Pasta salad is an easy make-ahead lunch that can be eaten cold or at room temperature. Add white beans, tomatoes, cheese, chicken, and/or any other mix-in your kids like.


Reach for whole grain crackers (or the ones your kids like best), cheese, and easy sides such as sliced or freeze-dried fruit. This is an easy snack lunch to pack that’s usually a hit with the kids.


Making a lunch around a muffin is such an easy option. I often top yogurt or cottage cheese with a few sprinkles to make the meal a little more fun.


Make a smoothie and freeze it, then add to a lunch box in place of an ice pack and it will be thawed by lunchtime. Pair with dry cereal, turkey, and some sliced peppers.


Pack food in an airtight container with a tight fitting lid to prevent spills and keep food fresh. Pack in an insulated lunch bag with an ice pack or two.
