I will admit that I am very happy to be very close to the new school year and I am sure that many mothers are happy being back to the routine after a long summer vacation and the return of early sleep schedules. But I always like to be prepared so I’ve been working on getting new and real ideas for the children’s school lunch boxes. I say real in the sense of delicious meals loved by children and easy to prepare and healthy at the same time. Having these three elements together is not easy, and let’s make it fun and ask any teenager in the house to help or prepare their own meals under your supervision and help them with new ideas. I read in a blog that to make any easy, fast and good meal for kids, you need to:
- look for food that kids like and love to eat
- look for food needs short time to be prepared
- most of the successful meal must have Protein, Carbs, Fruits and Vegetable
- A good idea to do with the picky ones, is to give some food choices earlier to choose from, so he’ll be emotionally ready when it’s time to eat
- Investing in a good lunch box is not a bad idea at all, choose the once that has separations to make it easy to organize the food
