What is a mom to do? Well, pack your child's lunch. It really doesn't have to be hard.
Check out these ideas for how to get started with a healthy easy lunch for your child or yourself!
There are many mornings, I do not want to go through the hassle of making my son's lunch. But, then I remember that it really only takes me about 3 or 4 minutes to make, and it will give him all the healthy nutrition he needs to have a great school day. Totally worth it.
Start off with making sure your child gets lots of good protein, vegetables and food that will give them energy and keep them sustained.
Here are some ideas to get your started:
- hard boiled eggs
- raw or cooked veggies like carrots, peas, broccoli and cauliflower
- a piece of fruit or handful of dried fruit
- fish - my son likes sardines or skipjack tuna
- leftovers from dinner last night
- celery, sunflower seed butter, and raisins
One of our favorites is the Organic Supreme Fruit and Nut Mix. It has a variety of all of your favorites, so you get even more nutrition packed in a handful of flavor.
