How to pack avocado toast for school lunch (so that it doesn't get messy and brown): My foolproof method | One Hungry Mama

I often pack avocado toast for my boys for school lunch and, whenever I share the pic on my Facebook page (where I share tons of school lunch ideas, by the way), I get the same question. . . over and over:

How can you pack avocado toast without it getting mushy and brown and plain yucky.

Well, here’s how.

Watch for my foolproof method. And when I say foolproof, I mean it. Avocado toast never comes home uneaten, and this from boys who won’t eat a banana with a brown spot.

I’m so thankful for this technique since my boys don’t believe in avocado in the mornings (unless blended into a smoothie). Now, I can pack this as a nutritious, meatless lunch whenever and know that they’ll come home with another veggie checked off the list, which relieves some dinner pressure. Phew!

    Hi- I’m curious how the toast fares in all this. My picky eater doesn’t like “mushy toast” or plain, untoasted bread.

    This worked great for my daughter’s lunch this morning & will be a new weekly staple. Thank you!

    Thanks for the video. Doesn’t the avocado stick to the Saran Wrap when you pull it off? Is the Press and Seal a better adoption than traditional Saran?

    So heartened to find this video!! Only to be let down. I appreciate the effort, but two major concerns come to mind: 1. Plastic waste. We are so drowning literally in plastic everything. I can’t reason using it to fight the good fight when it comes to avocado oxidizing only to then be contributing the the plastic problem. 2. Fat is so receptive/bioaccumulative to anything it comes into contact with, laying a film of plastic on fat negates any of the great nutritive value of the avo. I’m sorry. I’m not trying to be pedantic. Still looking for that holy grail myself. Trying to find healthy ways for my twinnies to east healthy fats daily in their lunch box. Any other work arounds? TQ.

  19. Thanks for these tips and ideas, thinking of tasty and interesting lunches that don’t take forever to make is the bit that I am finding the most difficult to achieve, so these are really helpful!
