With a little preplanning and experimentation, packing healthy school lunches doesnt have to be a chore. The key is to focus on the foods your children eat willingly.
With a little preplanning and experimentation, packing healthy school lunches doesn’t have to be a chore. The key is to focus on the foods your children eat willingly. Observe what goes down well at dinner and continue those ideas, as leftovers, for lunch.
Plan a soup night once a week and pack leftover soup later in the week, or have family-made pizza night and incorporate pizza slices for lunch.
Convenience items can be mixed with nutritious home-baked goodies such as fruit squares, crumbles, cookies, or the delicious Chocolate Energy Orbs featured here. Have your children help you make a batch on the weekends.
The recipes included this month are versatile enough to be adjusted to include each child’s favourite fruits and vegetables. As parents you know those preferences change from week to week, however, these simple but nourishing recipes will make keeping up with change as easy as pie, or Chocolate Strawberry Sandwiches.
