Healthy Kid Lunches


I was scouring the net just now looking for some new ideas for my daughter's school lunches... it seems like I pack the same things for her day in and day out, and I want to add some new items.

Then it occurred to me that other Moms might be doing the same thing, so I thought I'd post my list in case it gives someone else some new ideas :-)

The following are some things I have packed for my daughter for school lunches:



  • Cheese sandwich on whole grain bread

  • Frozen juice box as an ice pack

  • Cheese string

  • Mini carrots

  • Banana

  • Granola bar

  • Apple sauce

  • Fish crackers

  • Cheerios

  • Fig Newtons

  • Green grapes

...see what I mean? It's all good stuff, but there's not a whole lot there. My daughter is pretty picky. I guess I'll just keep surfing and see what else I can come up with...

Kellogg's cereal bars, pre-packaged celery w/ peanut butter, PB&J sandwiches, Vege chips, rice cake chips.

April - awesome ideas... Hmmm, I wonder if my daughter would eat celery with pb on it... she wanted to try it one day and insisted that she liked it (she'd never had it) because the Wonder Pets eat it. Too cute. Once she tasted it, she said she's save it for them, lol.
