Packing Healthy School Lunches

Below are some tips for making the preparation of healthy school lunches easier.

Tip #1: Let the Kids Help

One of the most important things is the importance of letting the kids help with the preparation and how this translates into them being excited to actually eat the foods they’ve made.

Tip #2: Use Reusable Lunchbox Containers

If possible, try to avoid disposable plastics. Make sure the container(s) is large enough to to hold foods for older kids, are dishwasher safe, and easy to clean.

Tip #3: Always Include Veggies and Fruit

Vegetables are excellent sources of many nutrients and eating a wide variety of colorful vegetables and fruits not only helps make sure children are getting enough micronutrients, but also helps develop their taste for these foods.

Tip #4: Use a Meal Planning Tool

If you want to simplify the process of lunch meal planning even more and integrate with your shopping list, consider using a meal planning tool. You can seamlessly plan your meals for the week (breakfast, lunch dinner, or any combination) and it creates a shopping list that can be adjusted based on what you have in the house.

For more information on healthy eating, please contact the Health Department at (630)553-9100.
