Healthy school lunch ideas the kids will actually love
The littles are back in school and you're stuck with the daunting task of packing them lunch. Of course, not just any foods will do—their lunches have to be healthy and hearty, all while being comprised of what the kids will actually eat. So, to make your job a little bit easier, we’ve rounded up healthy school lunch ideas not only the kids will love, but you will, too. So much, in fact, you'll be wanting to pack yourself the same lunch for yourself.
Baked Apple Chips
Apples are a lunchtime staple but try something different with baked apple chips. They’re super healthy but can easily fool the kids into thinking they’re traditional potato chips! All you need are apples, fresh lemon juice, a pinch of cinnamon, and five minutes to whip them up.
Bacon and Pea Pasta
Pasta is a filling option for lunch, and this recipe packs a healthy punch with peas and arugula, and kicks up the taste factor with bacon. Of course, you can always omit the bacon and swap in a variety of other vegetables to up the health quotient.
Get your hands on some vegan bacon and make a healthier version of a traditional BLT sandwich. Don't forget to include a pickle on the side!
