School lunch Tips
It can be hard to pack lunches for kids
that they actually WANT to eat.
Create categories like proteins, fruits, veggies, drinks, carbs, and sweets and let your kids know how many they can have in each category. This gives kids the power to choose their lunch within the guidelines you set. Letting kids choose what they want to pack saves parents time and kids are more likely to eat what they pack.
