It’s Back To School time once again. Are you going to send the same old sandwich in your child’s lunch box? You can make sure your child’s lunch is both healthy and something they enjoy eating. Here are a few unique ideas and recipes for kid’s lunch boxes.
Weelicious: Fresh is best, a motto you should think about when packing your child’s lunch. The fabulous and beautiful Catherine from Weelicious has thousands of recipes made just for your little ones (but you might find yourself addicted to the carrot snack sticks)! With a daily photo of what lunch combination she sends her son to school with, you can certainly get some ideas on how to reinvent your child’s typical, boring, and maybe not-so-healthy lunchbox.
Revolution Foods: has started a revolution. What kind of revolution you ask? A lunchbox revolution. They are starting to invade your children’s lunch boxes with healthy snacks disguised as “cool” food, food other children will be ready to trade their beloved candy bars and junk food for. With items like Organic Mashups, squeezable fruit that comes in kid-friendly flavors like grape, berry and tropical or Strawberry and Peanut Butter Jammy Sammys, a snack size twist on a lunch favorite.
Kid’s Lunch Box Cards: We all remember those cute little “I love you,” notes from mom tucked in our lunch boxes, except as a kid you probably tried to embarrassingly hide them from your friends. You can show your child you love them without the embarrassing love notes, instead pack these cards that contain jokes, riddles, wacky facts and scratch off answers. Your child won’t want to hide these- they will become lunchtime entertainment!
GoPicnic Meals: These ready-to-eat lunches are something I would like to eat for lunch every day. No need for ice packs or cooler lunch boxes, these meals require no refrigeration or microwaving and even meet school nutrition standards. SafariMunch, is a meal that consists of organic chips and salsa, sunflower seed crunch, natural strawberry applesauce, zesty snack mix, and snicker doodle cookies. Your child will come home and thank you for this meal!
