It’s Back to School Time!

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:

  1. Have them help choose foods at the store they like. They can also help pack their lunch.
  2. If lunch time is short, pack bite sized foods. Cut sandwiches in fourths to grab easier. Pack grapes, string cheese, and whole wheat crackers.
  3. Use easy open lunch bags and insulated bags with ice packs to keep cold foods cold.
  4. Pack smaller portions so they don’t waste food. Keep nutrition in mind to give them good fuel on the go!
