It can be hard to break from the formula of sandwich, fruit, juice box, treat that seems to be king of the bagged lunch. Keep things fun and interesting with these healthy kid-pleasing lunches
1) Healthy Lunchables
Create your own cheese-meat-cracker lunches. Pair slices of garlic sausage with cheddar cheese and ritz crackers. For a vegetarian option, swap the garlic sausage for thinly sliced apple.
2) Hummus and Veggies
It is easy to sneak in veggies when the are paired with a delicious dip. Pack fresh, raw veggies such as carrot sticks, celery sticks, cherry tomatoes, broccoli or cauliflower with hummus.
3) Chicken and Veggie Pita-wich
Give your tired old sandwich some wow factor! Slice open a piece of pita bread to create two “pockets” and spread hummus inside. Stuff with fresh spinach, shredded roast chicken and some grated cheddar cheese.
4) Mozzarella and Veggie Sandwich
A delicious meatless option, this sandwich is made with pesto, green peppers, avocado and (you guessed it) mozzarella cheese. Toast before you pack to melt the cheese, but make sure you let it cool before you pack it to avoid making the bread soggy
5) Hearty Lunchtime Salad
Spinach is a healthy and hearty base for any salad. Mix fresh strawberries or dried cranberries with some goat cheese, almonds and spinach for an easy and delicious salad. Need some extra protein? Top it off with some shredded roast chicken. Mix a simple dressing by adding olive oil to balsamic vinegar. Be sure to pack the dressing separately so the spinach doesn’t get soggy, and always use a leak proof container!
