A Healthy Lunch CAN Be FUN Too!

It is NOT impossible to pack a healthy, kid friendly lunch for your kids, WITHOUT spending a bundle! My kids, like many, LOVED those horrendous little Lunchables available in the supermarket.



I refuse to buy them as they are nothing short of a box full of prepackaged nitrates and empty calories, plus the portions are pretty tiny for a growing, active kid. Instead I spent 10 bucks on a Bento Box on Amazon.com and I let my son choose what he wants to put in the compartments. Image

. Here is an example of what he has packed in his box to take for lunch and snack:

  • Pita pocket filled with Homemade hummus and olives and cucumber slices
  • Broccoli florets and Cherry tomatoes
  • grapes
  • Graham crackers
  • Banana
  • Juice Box
  • Bottled water

All of this took minutes to toss together, and packed easily into the box and gave him a healthy snack, and lunch to fuel him for the day. I find that by letting the kids choose what to put in the brightly colored compartments, they have fun making healthy choices.

Take a shot and try this out for your kids, and even try it for yourself!
