  1. Fresh Produce
  2. Protein
  3. Whole Grain
  4. Water
  5. Ziploc Brand Divided Lunch Containers
Instructions
  1. Pack lunch containers night before or first thing in the morning.
  2. 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.
  3. Examples of what we use: carrots, tomatoes, cucumbers, sometimes bell peppers, berries, apples, pears, oranges (Cuties), melon, raisins.
  4. 2. I always include a protein. This gives them 'staying-power' to last them until they get home.
  5. 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.
  6. 3. Whole Grains. Again, containing more fiber than non-whole grains, keeps them fuller and satisfied longer.
  7. Examples of what we use: whole wheat bread, oatmeal, muffin, whole grain crackers, cereal like granola, oatmeal bars, popcorn, rice.
  8. 4. Ice Cold Water. Packed in their Thermos brand water bottles. Keeps water cold ALL DAY!
  9. 5. On occasion: Juice box, dried fruit strip, piece of dark chocolate (for my older one.)
