If your child regularly brings their lunch to school, you’ve faced the “what to pack” dilemma. You want to pack something nutritious, but you also need to be sure your kids will eat it. A thrown-out lunch does nothing for your child’s health or your wallet; it’s basically cash in the trash.
In addition to providing roughly a third of the nutrients your child’s body needs to grow and be healthy, a well-balanced lunch also provides brain and body energy to remain alert and focused for the rest of the school day. So, making sure your child eats it is crucial. Finding that balance of nutritious and delicious can sometimes be a challenge, but it’s far from impossible. In fact, we have some ideas for you on our sister site, Living on the Cheap. Check them out.
