But for real. They are just smart. It’s why I created an entire list dedicated to over 100 healthy ideas for easy school lunchboxes (preferably packed in a bento box) and dedicated the month of September to easy slow cooker meals and healthy bento box lunches.

I love that they basically tell you what to pack. You have four or five spots/components that need to be filled!

The four components to packing a healthy school lunchbox are:

  • Main/Protein: sandwiches, quesadillas, tuna salad, meatballs, etc.
  • Vegetable: raw, roasted, sautéed – there are so many vegetables that you can easily pack, but don’t be afraid to include leftovers like roasted vegetables. Always keep it tasty and add dips like hummus, ranch, easy greek yogurt dill dip, or guacamole.
  • Fruit: keep this component simple with fresh fruits that are ready-to-eat (berries, apples, etc.) and always have a few applesauce pouches and raisins on hand for rushed mornings.
  • Fun/Starch: this can be bagel or pita chips, trail mix with chocolate, a small cookie, chips…anything! If you have a main/protein component like meatballs, I like to include a starch on the side, preferably a whole grain one.

What to Include in Your Healthy Cheese Quesadilla Bento Box

Here’s the thing about Healthy Cheese Quesadilla Bento Box, or any bento box lunch for that matter. They HAVE to be easy. Unless you have endless time to pack lunches (hi, please fill me in on your life), I like to include components that come together quick and easy! And if one component takes a bit more time, the rest really need to be grab-and-go.

The quesadillas are pretty quick to cook (especially if you microwave them), but so are the rest of the components:

  • grape or cherry tomatoes – SLICE IN HALF for kids
  • guacamole mini cups
  • clementine – cut off the top to start the peel
  • put a serving of trail mix into silicone mold or small container

That’s it!
