Are you kids tired of the same old ham and cheese sandwich day after day at lunch? It is time to think outside of the lunchbox! Here are some healthy ideas for school lunch…
*Try different themes*
~Mini Waffles with a small amount of syrup or jam, a sliced hard boiled egg, and your child’s favorite fruit.
~Your child’s favorite cereal. Put some in a sandwich bag. Send in a mini bowl (like the small plastic kind in the baby aisle) Pack a single serve carton of milk or have you child buy a milk at school. Be sure to pack fruit to help fill them up!
~Bacon and eggs?!?! Sure! Pack a few slices of turkey bacon and hard boiled eggs. My children love Melba Toast so I will use that instead of regular toast (it might get stale or soggy.) Add yogurt as a side.
~Waffle with peanut butter and honey sandwich.
~English muffin with peanut butter.
~If your child likes tuna….make tuna salad. Cut the bread in the shape of a fish! Serve with goldfish cracker. Also if you have a fish cookie cutter cut out cantaloupe or honeydew!
~Chicken salad wrap. Add baked potato chips and some fruit.
~BBQ chicken pasta. Sounds weird, right? But it is fabulous and my children love it!
~Crackers with peanut butter
~Celery sticks (well, any veggie) with peanut butter
I will add more ASAP!
