Lunchbox snacks that your children will actually eat
Not even two more weeks and the children will go back to school. Definitely time to think about lunchboxes and good foods to put in their bags each morning.
We all dream about the ultimate, super healthy lunchbox full of wonders. But lets be realistic, super food probably means super returns. That is why we came up with some ideas for lunchbox snacks that your children will actually eat!
Snacks that are nutritious, delicious and enjoyed by children! Because next to the main meal snacks will bring your kiddo through the day. Keeping energy levels up and will make your children happy when opening their box.
A few things to keep in mind before you start packing:
+ Most schools are nut free these days, please consider this when making and baking snacks.
+ Try to stay away from store bought snacks, they often include ingredients that do the opposite of a nutritious snack and have wasteful packaging.
+ Buy some cute snack boxes!
+ Of course you can send a banana, raisins or apple to school as well. Easy and healthy! We just want to inspire you when you want to change things up a bit or your child declares that bananas are boring.
And here are our lunchbox snacks ideas:
+ Dried mango. Rich in vitamin A, B-complex vitamins, fiber, and antioxidants, dried mango is a wonderful healthy snack.
+ Blueberries. Kids love them and one cup of blueberries provides 24 percent of a person recommended daily allowance of vitamin C.
+ Make a big batch of fig bars (or any other healthy bar you like) and you are covered for a few days, depending on how many children you need to supply with snacks.
+ Same for healthy cookies.
+ Love oatmeal? Here is a great recipe for a portable oatmeal. Great snack when your child is not a big breakfast eater.
+ Carrots and hummus dip.
Add a few bits of frozen fruit into your child’s water bottle. This adds a little flavour and keeps it cool for longer.
