Children across the country have traded in their bathing suits and beach towels for book bags and notebooks—the summer is over and a new school year has begun. With it comes new classes, new teachers, new lessons to be learned, and new lunchboxes to be ﬁlled with nutritious meals and snacks for your child to enjoy throughout the school day.
Making sure that your child is well-fed during the school day is extremely important to their academic success. If they’re eating regular, healthy meals then they are more likely to be well-rested, more attentive, and will likely retain more information from their classes each day. Packing a good lunch, or helping your child pack his or her own, is one of the very best ways that you can help them be successful in school.
Instead of relying on your child to make health-conscious decisions in the lunch line in the cafeteria each day at school, send a healthy, delicious, and nutritious meal with them in their lunchbox to refuel with in the middle of the day. We’ve pulled together two diﬀerent lunch ideas that we know your kids will love. Plus, you’ll love knowing that they’re getting the proper nutrition that they need to make it through the school day!
Four Food Groups Kid’s Lunch
For a lunch that packs in as many diﬀerent food groups as possible, check out our Four Food Groups Kid’s Lunch. Your child will devour this appetizing lunch that includes an avocado, kale, hard boiled eggs, red bell pepper, and a seedless tangerine. It’s a good variety of food that’s easy to eat in the lunchroom and is ﬁlling enough to keep your child from being hungry in the afternoon.
Superfood Collard Roll-Ups
Our Superfood Collard Roll-Ups are easy to make, easy to pack in a lunch, and easy for your child to grab and eat for lunch! They’re full of all kinds of superfoods to keep your child’s mind focused throughout the school day and they’re delicious enough that we know they’ll eat them up!
