School Lunch

Are you always looking for ways to change up your kids lunches? It's easy to get in the habit of doing the same thing everyday but your kids might be begging you for something new. PBS Parents has put together a great list of quick and easy ideas!

1. Tuna, chicken or egg salad with whole grain crackers

2. Leftovers like pasta, tortellini with tomato sauce, pizza, chicken, turkey sausage or steak (kids don’t seem to mind eating them cold).  Save little condiment packages from takeout food to use as dip

3. Black beans and rice or other rice salads

4. Healthy soup or chili in a thermos 

5. Trail mix made with raisins, peanuts, sunflower seeds, and chocolate chips (or your kids’ favorite items

6. Healthy dried cereals (milk is optional)

7. Baby carrots, celery, sliced cucumbers, red bell peppers and pita chips with hummus or other dip

8. Popcorn (a kid-friendly whole grain), alone or mixed with raisins and nuts

9. Proteins like cheese sticks or cubes, hard-boiled eggs, nuts, chickpeas, edamame, or other legumes
