5 Kid Friendly Lunch Meat and Cheese Ideas

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Food Lion. All opinions are 100% mine.

Did you know that 1 in 8 people struggle with hunger in the US? How about 1 in 6 children face hunger every day. 

The statistics are alarming, however, brands such as Food Lion, are aware of this and not only try to help bring awareness to these issues but also help change the statistics.

For example, Food Lion cares for our neighbors by working to end hunger through its Food Lion Feeds initiative.

Currently, they have a goal of providing 1 billion more meals by 2025.

You can assist with helping them reach this goal by spreading the word about food insecurity in communities in the form of participating in the #NoEmptyPlate challenge. By using the hashtag #NoEmptyPlate on social media and sharing a photo of yourself holding an empty plate Food Lion will donate one meal to a family.

Additionally, today, I’m sharing five kid-friendly lunch meat and cheese ideas that can be purchased with Online Shopping with pick up or delivery or in person at your local Food Lion that don’t cost a lot of money. Some items you can even find deeper discounts on by shopping Food Lion’s Weekly dealsRead Also: Quick Kids Breakfast Meals

    These all look tasty! I’ll be trying these out for sure. I know my kids will love these lunches.

  3. That’s all my kids take to school. This and PB&J I can’t ever get them to take anything else to school.

  4. I want to give the chicken bacon lettuce wraps a try. Yum. I don’t eat a ton of bread mostly because it goes bad so quickly. I make wraps all the time since flour tortillas last a bit longer. My son would love all of these lunch options.

    I love ham grilled cheese sandwiches too.
