AvocaDoables: Avocado Lunches Built by Kids

Avocado Lunch Ideas for Kids

Over the past few years, children’s self-assembly lunches have achieved great popularity — and for good reason. Kids love to build their own lunch. To them, “some assembly required” is a selling point. But when prepare these lunches at home, Mom and Dad can rest assured that nutritious foods are packed inside — like avocados!

We call the following four recipes “AvocaDoables,” since they are easy, fun, and doable avocado lunches for kids to put together by themselves. They all add something yummy and green to their plate at lunchtime!

Kids’ Avocado Taco

What to pack:

  • Avocado slices
  • Miniature flour tortillas
  • Pico de gallo
  • Shredded Mexican cheese
  • Cooked chicken slices or ground beef

 

Kids’ Avocado Pizza

What to pack:

For the base:

  • Shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Marinara sauce
  • Bread thins or mini bagel slices

For the toppings (pick and choose):

  • Diced avocado
  • Pineapple chunks
  • Green bell pepper slices
  • Sliced black olives
  • Mini pepperoni slices

 

Kids’ Avocado Lunch Wrap

What to pack:

  • Thin avocado slices
  • Slice of preferred cheese
  • Slices of preferred deli meat (chicken, turkey, or ham)
  • Tomato slices
  • Spinach leaves or chopped romaine lettuce
  • Medium flour tortilla

 

Kids’ Avocado & Cracker Stacks

What to pack:

  • Avocado slices or cubes
  • Cheddar cheese slices
  • Rolled, thin-cut slices of ham or turkey
  • Cucumber slices
  • Whole wheat crackers

 

Pro Tip: Keep the avocado slices fresh in transit by spritzing them with a little lemon juice, lime juice, or olive oil spray. This prevents the air from reaching the surface, which oxidizes avocados and turns them brown.

If you find yourself with leftover slices after you pack your kids’ avocado lunches, don’t let it go to waste! Leftover avocado can be used as a kids’ side salad with tomato and feta cheese or in a fresh fruit salad with strawberries and pineapple. And if their lunchbox is full, go ahead and blend the avocado into a breakfast smoothie for yourself.
