Many children like the lunchables type meal – the problem is that store bought prepackaged lunches are packed with artificial colors, flavors and preservatives. Not to mention, the waste associated with the packaging. Instead, pack a yummy assortment of organic whole-wheat crackers, cheeses and spreads, and then pair with a fresh fruit and vegetable and you have a great lunch that any child will devour.
Wraps are great for kids because they are highly customizable and are perfect for kids of all ages. Whether it is a whole-wheat or vegetable based tortilla – adding loads of fresh vegetables and a yummy dip makes for a great lunch. Think of it as a salad rolled up into a sandwich – what could be better for you than that? Another option is a Mexican themed wrap, think beans, lettuce, tomatoes, cheese – a burrito of sorts.
Pita Pockets are perfect for school lunchboxes, they are compact and can be packed full of all kinds of yummy ingredients. And when I say Pita Pockets, I don’t mean the frozen, highly processed versions – I am talking organic whole wheat pitas stuffed with cheese, lettuce, tomato, avocado, and any of your favorite veggies. You can add whatever veggies your child enjoys for a lunch that is sure to please. You may place the filled pita into oven (180’c) for 5 mins to create a crispy exterior.
