Mason Jar Lunches: Homemade Lunchables

Lunchables are one of my kids' all-time favorite snacks. I seriously don't get it. It's just crackers, meat and cheese. Since they have peanut allergies, they can't even eat the treat that's in most of them since they are usually peanut products.

One week I grabbed some crackers on sale and picked up the pre-sliced cheese to snack on (since my hubby is doing keto, and I'm doing a lazy version of it, LOL). Since I didn't buy any Lunchables, our youngest son decided to make his own lunchables by slicing up the ham we already had in the fridge. He's so resourceful like that!

These homemade lunchables are nice since you can prepare in advance, slicing and sorting everything together, and package them in small mason jars. They will stay fresh for a few days, and are perfect if you are in a bind and need to get the kids something to eat before a long evening of practices (for all the Sports Moms out there)!

Mason Jar Lunches Homemade Lunchables Directions

  1. Clean out a fruit cup container with a little soap and water.
  2. Place about 7 crackers in your empty fruit cup container.
  3. Slice your cheese and lunch meat and place into the mason jar.
  4. Place the lid ring over the bottom of the fruit cup container, the flat lid onto the jar and carefully screw the cracker container on top.

These will be perfect for school lunches too. Send a fruit cup in their lunch, and make sure they bring back the empty container so you can reuse for their homemade lunchables! However, it may be easier to empty the fruit cup at home yourself since somehow those types of things never seem to make it back home! I use these reusable containers to avoid the headaches of never getting those old fruit cup containers back!
