A sandwich is a lunchbox staple! How do you get the kids to actually eat it though? Add some extra flavour by making a delicious sandwich spread with Rick’s Rub! Add your favourite Rick’s Rub seasoning flavour into the mayonnaise, spread on the sandwich bread, and enjoy!
Some of our favourites: Heat, Lamb, Seafood, Moroccan, and Tuscan.
Veggies and yogurt dip
Kids love dips! So do adults! An easy way to get veggies into growing bodies is by sending cut vegetables (carrot sticks, cucumber slices, cherry tomatoes, and bell pepper slices) with plain yogurt mixed with Rick’s Rub Lamb seasoning.
Hummus and pita chips
Whip up some homemade hummus with Rick’s Rub Moroccan seasoning and send to school with premade or homemade pita chips! Packed with protein and complex carbs, this snack will give the kids the energy they need to learn all day long!
Bonus: spread hummus in a wrap with veggies for a kid-friendly meal!
Grilled chicken salad
Use up some leftovers or meal prep for this school lunch idea. Chop up some seasonal vegetables for a salad and top with cold sliced grilled chicken rubbed with Rick’s Rub Original from the night before. Healthy and economical!
Meal prep for the win! Pan fry cold, leftover rice with diced vegetables, diced chicken/pork/shrimp/tofu, and lightly scrambled egg. Add soy sauce and Rick’s Rub Asian seasoning for flavour and lunch is ready!
When the cold weather comes, send the kids to school with a warm lunch to keep them toasty all day. Mix in Rick’s Rub Tuscan seasoning to your favourite tomato soup recipe and fill a thermos for some mid-day comfort. For an extra special touch, pack shredded cheese and oyster crackers on the side for the kids to add on top of their soup!
Taco Tuesday bowl
Send the kids to school with a fun Taco Tuesday-themed lunch! In a reusable lunch container, add cooked ground beef or chicken seasoned with Rick’s Rub Moroccan seasoning, then top with fresh chopped lettuce, tomato, cheese, beans, rice, corn, or any other favourite taco toppings! Pack a portion of tortilla chips to eat on the side with salsa, sour cream, or guac.
