5 Easy Packed Lunch Ideas!

Now that the kids are back in school it is time to get them back on track with a healthy packed lunch. Most of the prepared lunches at schools are usually not made in the healthiest of ways and we want you to give your children a healthy meal while they are at school. Packed lunches shouldn’t just be a boring ole sandwich and chips, we want to think outside of the box here and create lunches that will make the other kids at school want the same meal as your children. Here are 5 easy and healthy packed lunches for your children:

 Finger Food Lunch

Blogger, Moneywise Moms, offers a great packed lunch that she calls “Finger Food Lunch”. This lunch insists of celery and tomatoes for dipping in hummus, cubed cheese and multigrain crackers, a hardboiled egg, and some peas that may have been leftover from the previous night’s dinner. By using cupcake cups to separate the food, they are much easier to wash and store and they also replace the usage of plastic bags.
