Healthy Back to School Lunch Ideas

It’s that time again! Time for us to agonize over packing healthy, perfect lunches! To avoid sending little Junior to school with a Slim Jim and a fruit roll-up (not that there’s anything wrong with that, we all get busy….)

Read on for a few ideas!

Fruits of course, but here are a few twists on plain ole fruits:

  • Frozen Grapes or a frozen banana
  • Apple with organic peanut butter
  • Berry salad- strawberries and blueberries

Low-fat Yogurt
String Cheese
Cottage cheese- with a fruit to top

Bite size is key! Pieces of apples, cubes of cheese, baby carrots, and cherry tomatoes are all small and easy.
DIY Trail Mix-sunflower seeds, peanuts, almonds, cheerios, raisins, and a few m&m’s… 😉

Roll-ups: turkey and Laughing Cow Swiss cheese or cucumber and Laughing Cow cheese

Almonds and shelled pistachios
Sunflower seeds
Air-Popped Popcorn
Rice Cakes
