If your kids are tired of eating the same lunch every day, then today’s Chicago kid’s health blog is for you!
Instead of the old standby PB and J, put a couple of tablespoons of peanut butter in a plastic container. Then give your child healthy things to dip into it, like whole wheat crackers, celery, or apple slices.
Bento boxes are a fun way to to pack a creative and eye-catching lunch. Originating in Japan, bento boxes have small compartments to separate elements of a meal and can be found at many Illinois and Midwest area stores. They’re great for child-sized portions of food, and for kids who hate the idea of one food touching another food.
Finger foods are a fun lunch for children, and it’s easy to keep them nutritious.
Low-fat cheese cubes, fruit slices, and veggie sticks can add up to a filling meal for kids with all the vitamins and minerals they need. Sandwiches are a lunch time staple for kids, but you can try mixing up the starch. Instead of bread, try a whole-grain wrap or a whole-wheat pita.
I hope this blog post will help you add variety to your kids’ healthy lunches.
