  • 2. Healthy and Delicious School Lunches <ul><li>We all know the importance of sending our children off to school with a healthy and nourishing breakfast. </li></ul><ul><li>But making sure that they have a filling and nutritious lunch will refuel them for the rest of the school day. </li></ul>Brought to you by http://www.oldfashionedhomemaking.com
  • 3. Healthy and Delicious School Lunches <ul><li>But here is where the problem may come in. </li></ul><ul><li>We want to pack a healthy lunch, but will our kids eat it? </li></ul><ul><li>Or will they trade some items for their friend's chocolate cupcake? </li></ul>Brought to you by http://www.oldfashionedhomemaking.com
  • 4. Here are Some Suggestions Brought to you by http://www.oldfashionedhomemaking.com
  • 5. Give it Eye Appeal <ul><li>When they open up their lunch, you want it to be attractively packed, and not something they want to trade off with a classmate. </li></ul><ul><li>This doesn't mean it has to be a gourmet cuisine. </li></ul><ul><li>But it should at least look appetizing. </li></ul>Brought to you by http://www.oldfashionedhomemaking.com
  • 6. Make it Tasty <ul><li>Lunch can be boring. </li></ul><ul><li>There are ways to make it tasty and delicious. </li></ul><ul><li>First of all, make sure you are packing items that your child likes. </li></ul><ul><li>Let them help pack the lunch. </li></ul><ul><li>They might just be more likely to eat what is in there. </li></ul>Brought to you by http://www.oldfashionedhomemaking.com
  • 7. Use Dinner Leftovers <ul><li>Leftovers make very good lunches and are often more filling. </li></ul><ul><li>If you had meatloaf for dinner the night before, maybe a meatloaf sandwich would be a good lunch for the next day. </li></ul>Brought to you by http://www.oldfashionedhomemaking.com
  • 8. Make it Healthy <ul><li>The USDA has come out with new guidelines called MyPlate. </li></ul><ul><li>It is a good idea to consult this when preparing food for you family. </li></ul>Brought to you by http://www.oldfashionedhomemaking.com
  • 9. Make it Healthy <ul><li>Try to incorporate whole-grain breads as much as possible. </li></ul><ul><li>Include fresh fruit and vegetables. </li></ul><ul><li>Have them cut up in bite-sized pieces so you child will be more likely to eat them. </li></ul><ul><li>There's nothing wrong with a bag of chips or cookies every so often, but trail mixes and granola bars with natural ingredients are also good dessert or snack choices. </li></ul>Brought to you by http://www.oldfashionedhomemaking.com
  • 10. Use Proper Containers <ul><li>There are lots of plastic sandwich containers that fit in a lunch box and keep the sandwich from getting flattened out in a paper bag. </li></ul><ul><li>If you are sending fresh fruit and veggie pieces, pack them in a ziploc baggie that won't leak. </li></ul>Brought to you by http://www.oldfashionedhomemaking.com
  • 11. Keep it Safe <ul><li>Get an ice pack specifically designed to fit in a lunch box, and freeze it the night before. </li></ul><ul><li>This will keep the food cold and safe to eat. </li></ul><ul><li>You don't want them eating lunchmeat that has gotten warm over the course of the morning. </li></ul><ul><li>The same goes for any other food item that must be kept cold. </li></ul>Brought to you by http://www.oldfashionedhomemaking.com
  • 12. What Not to Pack <ul><li>Excessive junk food </li></ul><ul><li>Sticky, gooey foods that make a mess and are hard to clean off clothes </li></ul><ul><li>Any food items that are difficult to eat in a school lunchroom situation </li></ul>Brought to you by http://www.oldfashionedhomemaking.com
  • 13. Conclusion <ul><li>We all want our children to eat healthy food. We also know that their school performance is improved when they have a nourishing breakfast and lunch. </li></ul><ul><li>By including a variety of nutritious foods that are tasty and visually appealing, we will stand a better chance of our children's bodies and brains being well-fed. </li></ul>Brought to you by http://www.oldfashionedhomemaking.com
