Fruit & Veggies – More Matters

Not only is school starting up again, but it is “Fruit & Veggies – More Matters” month. That means it’s perfect timing to start packing those school lunches with more of those sweet fruits and crunchy veggies.

Here are some easy ways to pack more of these healthy foods:

  • Pack a salad in a mason jar. It’s the perfect way to pack your kids off to school with some extra veggies
  • Use veggies as the wrapper! Lettuce or kale can be used as wraps. Fill them with your kids favorite sandwich ingredients.
  • Pack chips. No, not potato chips, veggie chips. Kale cihps, green bean crisps, zucchini chips and apple chips are all delicious. Thinly sliced and made crispy, the kids won’t even know the difference!
  • Those mason jars…are just too wonderful. Pack it full with layered yogurt, fresh fruit, and granola for your fruit fill.
  • Make a homemade trail mix. Let your child go to the grocery store with you and have them pick out dried fruits and nuts. Combine whole grain cereal for an easy trail mix.
  • Shish kabobs aren’t just for the grill. Use a kabob stick to alternate between fresh strawberries and cheddar cheese cubes.

And these lunches aren’t just for the kids, try them for yourself when you’re on the go!
