- Fresh Produce
- Whole Grain
- Ziploc Brand Divided Lunch Containers
- Pack lunch containers night before or first thing in the morning.
- 1. Include fruits and/or vegetables. I don't always pack a vegetable, but almost always include a fruit or two. My kids eat most vegetables cooked (other than carrots) so we just save them for when they are at home.
- Examples of what we use: carrots, tomatoes, cucumbers, sometimes bell peppers, berries, apples, pears, oranges (Cuties), melon, raisins.
- 2. I always include a protein. This gives them 'staying-power' to last them until they get home.
- Examples of what we use: peanut butter sandwiches, peanut butter balls, peanut butter and fruit, deli turkey, cheese, yogurt, frozen smoothie pops, beans, nuts and seeds.
- 3. Whole Grains. Again, containing more fiber than non-whole grains, keeps them fuller and satisfied longer.
- Examples of what we use: whole wheat bread, oatmeal, muffin, whole grain crackers, cereal like granola, oatmeal bars, popcorn, rice.
- 4. Ice Cold Water. Packed in their Thermos brand water bottles. Keeps water cold ALL DAY!
- 5. On occasion: Juice box, dried fruit strip, piece of dark chocolate (for my older one.)
