Oh No!!! Almost time for those school lunch-boxes. Never fear, a quick look here and there and we have 5 really nutritious Lunches.
Thanks once more to Kaboose.com

The Mid-day Lunch-box

As you pack up your child’s lunchbox, take the opportunity to pack in nutrients as well. Two important goals for ensuring your child eats a healthful lunch:
    • Include as many food groups as you can as whole, unprocessed foods. • Make it as appealing as possible, both visually and tastefully (an uneaten lunch isn’t doing anyone any good).

Here are eight healthy lunch ideas for your kids that we can (almost) guarantee will be devoured happily. Each meal has 400 to 500 calories and provides at least a third of a day’s fiber and protein needs. If you have a very active preteen, you may want to add an extra snack or increase the portions since their energy needs are higher.

Lunchbox 1

    • Whole wheat English muffin with tomato, a fresh mozzarella cheese slice, and basil • Hard boiled egg • 100% Fruit leather • Fruit/vegetable juice blend

Healthy highlight: Did you know that eating an egg a day, if your cholesterol levels are normal, is perfectly okay? In fact, eggs are an excellent source of protein. They are considered the gold standard because they contain all of the essential amino acids (building blocks) necessary for the body when making its own proteins for various functions. The yolk is also a rich source of lutein and choline, two compounds that have been found to benefit eye health. It is also one of the few natural sources of vitamin D, an important nutrient in proper bone development.

Helpful tip: If you can’t find a 100% vegetable and fruit juice blend, you can make your own by combining a half cup of low-sodium tomato or carrot juice with a half cup of orange, apple, or pineapple juice.
