5 Healthy Packed Lunch Ideas For Back To School – Give the classic brown-bag lunch a makeover with these delicious (and nutritious!) ideas for packed lunches. Your kids will love eating something new, and you’ll love the health benefits – it’s a win-win! Here are 5 healthy packed lunch ideas for back to school:
1. PB&J Apple Roll-ups
This take on your average PB&J is much healthier than the old fashioned way – and way more fun to eat! To make, fill a whole wheat tortilla with peanut butter, jelly and a sliced apple, and roll up into a little wrap.
2. Banana Oatmeal “Cookies”
Your child will be stoked when he/she opens his/her lunch box to find cookies. You’ll be even more stoked knowing what’s in them (banana, oatmeal, vanilla, applesauce and cinnamon).
3. Tuna Salad Rolls
Make your tuna salad at home and send your child to school with a small container of it and a roll of your choice. Voila – a tuna salad roll that beats any school lunch.
4. Apples & Peanut Butter
This quick and easy snack is the perfect side to any home-packed lunch.
5. Cinnamon Apple Chips
Slice some apples, sprinkle them with cinnamon and let them cook a bit in the oven. These homemade apple chips will be frequently requested soon after that.
