Back to school season is rapidly approaching and it's time to change up the menu this year with healthy, quick, and tasty lunch ideas kids will love.
Tuck some lettuce, carrots, cucumbers, peppers, or whatever veggies your child is a fan of, with hummus on a tortilla wrap. This meal has very little prep time, and can easily be transported to school.
Vegetable Pasta Salad
This is a great lunch for yourself, and the kids! One box of whole wheat pasta is around $1 and contains protein, fiber, and vitamins. Add some toppings such as olives, tomatoes, peppers, zucchini or whatever left over veggies you have at home for a well balanced meal.
Veggies + Dip
Layer the bottom of your jar with hummus and add an array of veggies such as carrots, celery, peppers, etc, for an easy clean up snack. You also could try putting peanut butter on the bottom with some sliced apples or celery to satisfy that sweet tooth.
Nuts + Fruit
Nuts and fruit are nutritious staple in a child's diet. They have essential vitamins and healthy fats. Adding mixed fruit, and mixed nuts is a tasty and filling snack. It is a great alternative to packing unhealthy snacks such as chips and cookies.
Cold Pressed Juice
Add one of Marvé's Juice's for a sweet and satiating healthy treat! Pressed juice is vegan, kosher certified, dairy free, gluten free and have no added sweeteners.
