Sometimes it can be hard to constantly come up with a nutritious lunch for my kids (and myself) day after day. But, if you really break it down, it doesn’t have to be difficult! I’m super excited to be partnering with Sargento over the next several months, and today I’m thrilled to provide some ideas and tips for nutritious and fun lunches as well as snack ideas! I hope you enjoy the video! It was a lot of fun to come up with creative ways to fill the lunchbox!
It isn’t always easy and convenient to feed and provide our families with the best options. But, at the end of the day, it is up to us to make those decisions, and help guide our kids to a robust lifestyle and good relationship with food. Even as adults, it is hard to make good choices when our schedules are so busy, and we just plain don’t have a lot of time! But, I have some tips to help make putting together lunches and snacks easier on you!
10 Tips to make a Nutritious Lunch for Kids (and Adults!):
- Use high quality, fresh ingredients: When it comes to our food choices, we have to consider and make good choices on what we are feeding our families. I always try to serve my family the best quality ingredients, and make good choices on the products we eat. My kids and I love eating Sargento Cheese in our lunches as well as for snacks! The kids especially love when I get creative and use cookie cutters, or present their lunches and snacks in a fun way.
2. Pack a balanced meal: When I make lunches, I always try include: a fresh fruit and vegetable, dairy like Sargento Sliced Cheese or Cheese Snacks, some kind of meat or sandwich or salad, some kind of a snack, and usually a little treat. (Read on to see the rest of the tips!)
