Pack the book bags and pack the lunch! It’s time to head back to school! Help get your child to eat the lunch you packed with these tips:
- Have them help choose foods at the store they like. They can also help pack their lunch.
- If lunch time is short, pack bite sized foods. Cut sandwiches in fourths to grab easier. Pack grapes, string cheese, and whole wheat crackers.
- Use easy open lunch bags and insulated bags with ice packs to keep cold foods cold.
- Pack smaller portions so they don’t waste food. Keep nutrition in mind to give them good fuel on the go!
