Meal Planning: Low Carb School Lunch Ideas

Most school lunches are full of processed high carb foods. My daughter has taken a low carb lunch for the past two years. Here are some of her favorites and how we manage to keep her on plan.

  • Why would you what full fat yogurt?

  • Great ideas!!! Thank you!!!

  • Why can't you have quest bars?

  • Great info! How old is your daughter? We're probably around the same age range 🙂 I'm 19

  • your daughter is very beautiful

  • Grace is SO beautiful and smart too boot!! Lock the door mama, the boys'll be lining up at the door in a couple years if they're not already. Thank you for the ideas — lookin' for ideas for my boy who's about Grace's age.

  • p.s.– as a diabetic, the Quest Bars spike my blood sugar higher than a regular candy bar. On amazon you can buy NUGO SLIM — chocolate raspberry are better than the others even though I normally do not like chocolate and raspberry. Those are the only ones I can eat as a diabetic, though I try to stay away altogether because they take me out of ketosis. The Nugo slim use REAL chocolate, 2 grams of real sugar (not artificial which also have delayed glucose spiking). Yes, they are boring, but not much different than the Quest bars — I have tried all those too really thinking they were low carb, but they are absolutely not. Quest will not take responsibility for their false advertising of low carb. I do love the Quest Bars taste though — one of the best-tasting out there for sure.

  • ty…sure helpful ideas…keep them coming please luv from canada

  • wow ty for this demo

  • Such a helpful video! I love the idea of the little cup containers. We homeschool but I think it would be great to prep little snacks in those cups for the kids to help themselves too or to take on the go. Thanks for sharing!

  • Thank you for this video, my daughter is ready to go low carb and was asking about what she will bring for lunch!

  • Grace has the sweetest personality. If I was in school, I would love to be her friend. Wow, what valuable information to learn from her smart mama. Kristie, you're just a pro. As usual, thanks so much for sharing. I'm using these ideas to pack MY lunch. Many blessings to your family!

  • you did not mention the brand of wrap you use. I would be interested in knowing that as I don't make my own

  • LOL–I reuse containers to. I food prep, for the week, and I keep the containers when my wife and Daughter go to places like Jersey Mikes and Olive Garden. Nice Video!

  • I did get some ideas. Thank you.

  • Love the video!

  • Wonderful choices! This helps to give me ideas for things to eat for lunch. The parmesan crisps you can get a big bag of them at Costco. They are called Whisps. I love the seaweed too Grace and you can get that at Costco as well. TFS

  • I eat those wraps alot! I like putting them in the taco bowl mold too and baking it and putting my taco in there. So good! Loved the video 🙂

  • This video very helpful to me for quick lunches. I am "3 weeks in" now on Keto plan and feeling so much better already. Give my thanks to your beautiful daughter for posting ideas with you.

  • Great job, you've inspired me to do more keto with my kids ❤

  • What's the brand of the full fat yoghurt?

  • So sad my mom use to restrict me like this and I've had such a bad relationship with food being an adult.

  • Great job Grace

  • I have been following you for awhile and I loved this video. Ideas for the kids but also for me!

  • Not crazy about the cleavage. I appreciate your vids minus that.

  • If you can't find crème fraise, you can make your own, by adding 3 Tbsp of butter milk into 2 cups of heavy cream. Mix it and leave it on your counter for 24 hours, cover the top with a coffee filter. I also make my own yogurt from kefir.

  • Finally real recipes that I can make😊 your recipes are easy and things I already make but can change to low carb thank you!

  • Bread and cheese isn't exactly low-carbs?

  • Thanks Mom, but seems Grace has this.

  • Thanks! great information.

  • Gracie, you're so fortunate to have a Mom who teaches you all about proper healthy eating. I'm so encouraged and have made many of your recipes.

  • Thank you for sharing!! Do you have any printable shopping lists or meal plans?

  • thank you so much for this video!! I don't want my seven-year-old daughter eating bread anymore! It's such the American way and I don't want her to feel like she's deprived yet I want her to live a very healthy strong happy life. These ideas are fantastic! I've already cut out most of her sugar if not 95% and I really really want to get the bread out too. So these ideas for school lunches come at the perfect time! Thank you so much for your help and your willingness to share! Love and joy from Reno

  • I like Bup bars (like quest bars), for morning tea and sometimes breakfast 🙂 Really need more ideas that I don't need to refrigerate/prepare at work/school and some sweet ideas.

  • have you done a video on the homemade gelatin? I have an idea of some using a Crystal light type drink mix to flavor it (I get the ones with stevia), but have no clue how to figure it out. T.I.A.
