There’s a wealth of info out there about healthy lunch options. In fact healthy eating has never been more popular. We all need a varied diet with lots of fresh, whole foods.
We know all this, right?
One school Term down, hands up who else is finding the quest for healthy, varied, yummy lunch options for their kids tricky and ground-hog-dayish??
Time to take the lunch box power back my friends! Let’s start Term 2 feeling inspired.
Grab yourself one of our fab lunch bags (personalise for free!!) and throw in some or all of the following:
Fresh grainy bread with quinoa, seeds and grains
GF pita pocket
Rice paper rolls
Add some delicious lean protein – sliced chicken, ham, cheese, boiled egg
Crunchy iceberg lettuce, alfafa sprouts, avocado
Chopped veg – carrot, cucumber, capsicum or celery sticks with hummus for dipping
Chopped fruit – strawberries, apple, nectarines, peaches, blueberries or crunchy grapes
Wholemeal rice crackers with cheese
Bite sized mozzarella balls, cherry tomatoes
Yoghurt – lots of delicious varieties available, go for natural and add your own swirl of pure honey or delicious berries
Vegie chips – replace potato chips with roasted sweet potato, beetroot or kale chips
Keep hydrated with icy cold filtered water
Flavour your own popcorn
Pop a few oranges in the freezer, first slicing open a bit of peel for easy access later on as it’s defrosting. Then into the lunch box for a delicious cool treat at lunch.
Replace store bought cookies with this delicious recipe from nutritionist Lucinda Zammit – and get the kids to help you!
