Lunchbox Tips

Yes, children are back in school and it’s time to think about ways to insure our children – and ourselves – are making wise choices for lunch.
Bite-size Lunch Idea
Perfect Lunch Idea! Bite-size oranges with Brain Balls (packed with protein!)
Consider these tips:
  • Eat breakfast.
  • Include a protein and carb  — vegetable or fruit or grain.
  • Unhealthy choices lead to getting hungry during class and the inability to concentrate and focus.
  • Pack a lunch that contains a mixture of protein, carbs and fats.  This will satisfy any immediate urge for food and keep hunger at bay longer.
  • Ask your child what other students are eating. Then, ask the parent for a recipe or where they purchased the food.
  • Visit the grocery store for healthy snack and lunch ideas.  Stay around the perimeter of the store. That’s where the ‘good stuff’ is.
  • Drink 1/2 your weight in ounces of water each day.
  • Have snacks in your car/purse/backpack.
  • Be grateful and practice mindfulness.
