A healthy lunch that your child will actually eat – many parents struggle to find those nutritious and delicious items to pack in their kids’ lunch. Here are some common problems that parents face and some helpful ideas.
Use a crockpot to make a large batch and have for dinner too. Soup freezes very well in freezer-safe bags. Portion out appropriate sizes and freeze for easy lunch options during busy weeks.
Use bell peppers, mushrooms, spinach, broccoli, onions with reduced-fat cheese on a whole grain tortilla with salsa. Add black beans for a protein punch! Cook the night before and seal the edges.
Breaded and baked chicken chunks make for great modified chicken nuggets. You can do this for dinner the night before and use the leftovers. Serve with fun sauces.
Spread peanut butter on a whole grain tortilla. Top with thinly sliced bananas and a drizzle of honey. Roll up, and enjoy!
This is fun for little fingers to pick up and eat!
Use cookie cutters to shape sandwiches, fruit, lunch meat, etc.
Put a note, joke, or funny drawing in with their lunch (can write on a napkin).
If your child doesn’t already have a lunch box/thermos, allow them to pick one out and use it for all of their lunches.
