Get inspired with these dietitian approved healthy lunch ideas for back to school!
It's back to school time, which for a lot of families, can be a transition that takes some practice and planning. Inspired Health Group Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, Nicole Moretta, shares some simple healthy lunch tips to nourish your child and make back to school easier for you too!
Doing a little bit of planning can make it possible to consistently send your child off to school with healthy meals. Make your lunch menu for the week and shop ahead for those ingredients.
In addition to food ingredients, you may need to get some items to pack lunches in. Do you have reusable containers at home? What about small containers for dips and salad dressings? Does your child need utensils as well? Have your child practice opening each container prior to the start of school!
Are there foods on your lunch menu you can prep on the weekend or evening before the first day of school? Prepping items ahead of time can make mornings smoother for sending off your child!
We all like a little variety! Pack smaller portions of 3-5 items rather than larger portions of 2-3 things. Try to get variety of colors within one lunch.
If you receive SNAP, all of your children who attend school automatically qualify for free school meals such as breakfast and lunch. Learn more here!
