Healthy Back to School Lunch Ideasfeatured, to eat — By Trish on August 7, 2012 at 8:08 am
It’s that time again! Time for us to agonize over packing healthy, perfect lunches! To avoid sending little Junior to school with a Slim Jim and a fruit roll-up (not that there’s anything wrong with that, we all get busy….)
Read on for a few ideas!
Fruits of course, but here are a few twists on plain ole fruits:
- Frozen Grapes or a frozen banana
- Apple with organic peanut butter
- Berry salad- strawberries and blueberries
Cottage cheese- with a fruit to top
Bite size is key! Pieces of apples, cubes of cheese, baby carrots, and cherry tomatoes are all small and easy.
DIY Trail Mix-sunflower seeds, peanuts, almonds, cheerios, raisins, and a few m&m’s…
Roll-ups: turkey and Laughing Cow Swiss cheese or cucumber and Laughing Cow cheese
Almonds and shelled pistachios
We also love mixing up our lunches with these fun ideas for “Kids Sushi.” What are some staples in your lunches?
