Summertime lunches have to be quick and easy, especially if your kids are busy with swimming lessons, camp, and other summer activities. Keep fresh salads, vegetable sticks, and fruit in the fridge along with deli meats for sandwiches. And keep choices varied and interesting to keep the kids from becoming bored with hum-drum lunches. Instead of loaf bread, consider making wraps or sliders. A cold noodle salad is an excellent choice for active kids, and it can be made a day in advance.

Here are several recipes for snacks and lunches that are quick and easy to make or can be made ahead of time, and they're sure to please even the pickiest kids.
