National School Lunch Week

National School Lunch Week

In 1962, President John F. Kennedy founded the National School Lunch Week! This was a project to promote and encourage the importance of healthy school lunches in a child’s life. In these hectic times, we need to continue to support all the possibilities of providing healthy lunches to students whether they are in school or at home for their education.


As a way to encourage continued healthy lunches, we’ve put together a mix-and-match  (and easy) school lunches for your children! There's 24 different combinations. Then just add some fresh Hamama microgreens grown right from your kitchen!

Need a starter kit, get one now!


Use the helpful guide above to incorporate them into these delicious meals:

  • Salads
  • Wraps
  • Lunchables
  • Pasta Salads
  • Sandwiches

In addition to cooking and preparing healthy meals, here are some fun ways to spruce up a kiddo’s meal.

  • Add a note to show your kids you’re thinking of them
  • Use cookie cutters (on the sandwich, or fruits, or cheese slices)
  • Include a joke or quick sudoku puzzle or coloring sheet with a couple crayons
  • Create silly face containers (would highly recommend reusable containers!!)
