Involve the Kids
Involving them in growing, picking, planning, & cooking gives them a vested interest. They created that artwork and are more inclined to try the new foods.
When you plan ahead for school lunches and trips, you are more likely to balance foods your kid likes with foods that are more of a challenge.
Bright & Colorful
The elements of a good meal includes a mess, lots of color, and eating with your hands.
School Lunches are very high in Carbohydrates & Processed Foods
While the School System's Child Nutrition Program ensures that children have a nutritious meal, it often does not provide sufficient options to assure that the child has healthy, non-breaded,
non-processed, lower carb options.
Protein, Vegetables & Carbohydrates...but these aren't perfect. They are real mom meals that your kids would eat.
