Delicious Lunch Ideas For School
Did you know your kids were into day trading? Well... school lunch trading, that is. To keep your children from saying “I’ll trade my pudding and sandwich for your fruit snacks” check out these great lunch tips and school lunch ideas that your kids will love.
Simple school lunch ideas
By nature we all eat first with our eyes and the same is true for your child. Purchase bright colored re-usable containers, stickers and bags to stay away from the boring brown bag. Colorful straws can even make the most mundane (and healthy) beverages more enticing.
Garnish Your Lunch Sandwich
Get creative with garnish and make that sandwich stand out with a pretty flower made of radish slices for petals, a carrot slice as the main body of the flower and a chive for the stem. You can also use pickles the same way to create a smiley face, shining sun, or your own designs.
Also try cookie cutters on your bread for an extra-artistic touch your kids will love!
