When it comes to packing a healthy school lunch, do you often find yourself in a rut, relying on the same ho-hum foods every day?
I certainly do.
Call me boring, but in an effort to make things easy for myself and my husband, I cook a large batch of lentil stew on Sunday that lasts most of the week.
We definitely switch things up a bit and use leftover chicken or salmon, make egg salad or crack open a can of sardines, but the key for us is that school lunch is healthy, quick and easy.
The funny thing is that my kids actually don’t seem to mind eating the same school lunches over and over again.
Still, I know that exposing them to a wide variety of foods is important if I want to raise kids who are healthy, adventurous foodies.
So on a quest for creative, easy and healthy school lunches, I found some great options.
All of these ideas were developed from nutritionists, so they have a guaranteed health stamp of approval, and they’re super quick to boot.
