Chicken Parmesan Fries
Why didn't anyone tell me that breadcrumbs can stick to meat just fine without the time-consuming flour/egg/breadcrumb three-step process? News flash! Raw skinless chicken is very sticky and holds this whole-grain breading quite well! No need for frying here; I used my “faux fry” method of high-heat baking, using a generous coating of good-quality cooking spray oil to give these fries a nice crisp finish. A good pair of kitchen scissors is your best friend here for cutting the chicken into fry-shaped sticks.Click here to see 10 Back-to-School Recipes to Make Your Kids Happy

These are a handy lunch box alternative to sandwiches and are loaded with hidden veggies! The Sneaky Chef mac and cheese formula is tried and true, and this turns it into a hand-held meal that can be popped into the kids’ lunch boxes. No fork is needed, as they are eaten just like a muffin. Kids don't mind them cold. Make ahead and freeze, take them out and put into the fridge the night before, and you are set to go.

BBQ Chicken Mac 'n' Cheese
Sammy never liked taking chicken to school for lunch, but when I put this macaroni and cheese in her thermos (albeit, a gluten-free version), she came home and told me I had given her two of her favorite foods in one! I don't know who was happier — Sammy or her mother, who had managed to sneak in some more brain-boosting protein into her daughter's mac and cheese lunch! Maybe that's why she aced the math test!

Because my kids are always asking for protein bars, I wanted to come up with a simpler, homemade, less processed version. I was so excited to come up with a delicious, easy-to-make, "mini-meal-replacement" bar. This one requires no baking, so it is a speedy staple for peanut-friendly houses or schools. These are great as an after-school or after-sports snack.

I used to walk right by the wonton wrappers in the produce section of my market, never having appreciated what a simple and versatile ingredient they are. But one day when all attempts to find the perfect, low-fat, pliable crust failed, I gave wonton wrappers a whirl, and boy, am I glad I did. They provide a ready-made pre-cut piece of dough with very few ingredients and no fat and work beautifully as a thin but sturdy crust for mini quiches and this savory lunchbox muffin.

Smoky Joe Slider
This is a smoky twist on a traditional “Sloppy Joe,” served up mini-style on slider buns. I especially love the subtle sweet flavor that blueberry adds to barbecue sauce — who knew? Because it isn't bound in a patty, you can also sneak much more nutritious purée into this dish.Click here to see 7 Quick Tips for Slimming Down Comfort Foods.

These are great for the lunch box, especially for kids who are tired and bored with sandwiches. They get three top-notch veggies, three whole grains, calcium, and protein all in a portable package of a muffin. Kids love anything called "pizza." They are also a great after-school snack.
