A Mason Jar Lunchable is a smart and creative on the go snacking idea. Heading to the park? Pack a masonable! Bringing leftovers to work? Consider packing the food this way. A masonable isn’t recommended for school lunches because of the glass, but it is a GREAT idea for teachers to use!

Using any mason jar with a standard size lid and an empty fruit cup or applesauce cup, you can create a homemade lunchable! Did you know that these empty plastic cups fit a mason jar lid perfectly? Mason jar lids have two pieces, making it magically simple to insert the plastic cup!
Mason Jar Lunchable
It all started by using meat, cheese, and Ritz crackers… just like a pre-made lunchable! Except, it’s SO much more delicious and fresh! You can make them ahead of time and keep them fresh in the refrigerator. These are especially great for pre-made meals, working from home, or distance learning.
Then we tried it with snack size cereal bowls. Cold milk, fresh cereal, YUM! I love that we can re-use the mason jars and fruit cups to create snack size portions of anything we like:) Isn’t that fun? We made a traditional Lunchable with meat, cheese, and crackers. We’ve also made it with cereal and milk for a morning snack. My favorite is the chips and dip and the yogurt with strawberries. You know what was super tasty? The chicken salad with Triscuits!
I’ve seen people make them with tuna and crackers, carrots and ranch, hummus and veggies, and even pasta with sauce. Just imagine all of the possibilities!
