It’s back to school time again and we are here to save the day with some lunch packing recipes and tips that will save you time and money this year! Pick up a cute sectioned bento box to pack a healthy lunch that fits right into your kids normal lunch box. A bento box gives you the freedom to mix and match healthy and fun options so that lunch time is never disappointing! Here are some ideas to get the creative lunch packing juices flowing:
Ham & cheese roll ups, sliced apples with sunflower butter (allergy friendly!), sliced veggies, bunny graham friends
Pita bread with veggies & hummus, orange slices, smash crisp
Cheese, pepperoni & crackers, apples & trail mix, yogurt & fruit
-Don’t forget to include a healthy protein & a healthy fat, growing brains need these nutrients to focus!
-Mix up protein sources, it could be ham & cheese one day, peanut butter & jelly, or a fun yogurt parfait! The options are endless.
-Wrap lunchmeat around a cheese stick for a quick & healthy lunch!
