I love all of the cute and creative ideas for bento lunches, but I usually just throw together a quick lunch that is a combination of both convenience and healthiness. I’m all about quick, easy, and healthy. Remember when I posted 5 Fun and Easy Apple After School Snacks last year?
Mott’s®. Snack & Go applesauce pouches are delicious and nutritious; and they’re the perfect convenient snacks when you’re on-the-go. Get 30% daily value of vitamin C in a variety of flavors, conveniently packaged in on-the-go juice boxes with Mott’s® 100% Apple Juice. These are perfect for after school and lunchtime!
Here is a quick and easy non-sandwich lunchbox idea I put together for Colton recently that is different from the usual sandwich lunch and certainly fun and healthy!
Turkey Sausage: These are small turkey snacks that are low calorie and great protein.
Clementine: One of my son’s favorite fruits to eat, these clementines are a good source of Vitamin C.
Raspberry Tartlets: You can buy these in most stores or make them yourself. These are considered the dessert of the lunch, but still made real fruit.
Cauliflower: Broccoli and Cauliflower are a few of the vegetables Colton will eat. He only recently started eating cauliflower because before he assumed he wouldn’t like it. This veggie is filled with vitamins and low in cholesterol and saturated fats.
Mott’s®. Snack & Go applesauce pouches: These convenient pouches are made with real fruit. Try the strawberry and natural flavors!
Sweet Potato Tortilla Chips: I only recently found these and my family likes them just as much as original tortilla chips. They don’t need to know they are made with sweet potatoes, quinoa and chia! You can find these in your local health food sections at the grocery store.
Salsa: I buy organic salsa in bulk. This is a low calorie dip that my family loves. 2 Tbls is only 10 calories!
Mott’s® 100% Apple Juice: These juice boxes are an excellent source of vitamin C and there are 1-½ servings of fruit in each box!*
I would totally eat this as my own lunch! As busy moms, it’s important to find a balance of convenience and healthy. Those two words are not conflicting; there are so many quick, easy, and healthful lunch options!
