Fresh Ideas for Brown Bagging: National School Lunch Week

National School Lunch Week has arrived, and new inspiration has come to help you make lunches for your kids.

Healthy Lunches - aol.caSchool lunches for the children of our country are a very important aspect of feeding our young healthy & nutritious foods to keep them alert, strong & willing to learn.

It is a good idea to provide each lunch with a few raw vegetables, which can be paired with a dip that is appealing to children. This can also serve as their recess snack. Fresh fruit is easy to pack.

If sandwiches are being prepared, it is possible to make grain breads more appealing to children if the bread is cut using large cookie cutters. What little one wouldn’t be impressed with a star-shaped or butterfly-shaped sandwich? Also, be sure to include 1 or 2 slices of cheese to accompany the sandwich.

Small yogurt containers are a perfect dessert of sorts, as well as little fruit salads that can be served in small, plastic, sealed containers.

Insulated milk containers or juice containers are readily available to provide healthy & nutritious drinks with lunches.

brown paper bagTrail mixes without peanuts, of course, raisins, dried apples & other fruits will keep your child smiling when they open their lunch container.

Use your imagination when preparing & planning lunches. Your child will thank you in many ways.

National School Lunch Week is a great time to get online & grab a few quick pointers and maybe some new ideas for your child’s lunch box.
