Dear Home-Ec 101,
I have been trying to figure out how to be more creative and cook from scratch since I know processed or over-processed foods can’t be good for us. My kids started eating school lunches again and as I watch them put on more weight, I am realizing I need a creative, fun way to offer them a healthier take from home school lunch some how…. any suggestions?
Flummoxed by Lunch
This is the type of question I like to open up to the greater Home Ec 101 community.
Jenn Fowler (happy birthday, my friend) often does a lunchbox report on her site FrugalUpstate. Maybe she’ll share a link to that series in the comments below.
Bento Boxes (if you have serious time on your hands)
Yogurt & Fruit
Just be aware sometimes schools pay attention to what you pack and have different ideas of what constitutes healthy and balance. It’s just a good idea to remember this, after all, they count a packet of ketchup as a serving of vegetables. (Let that sink in)
If you are a blogger and share what you pack for your kids, feel free to link to yourself in the comments below.
Otherwise, chime in with your suggestions for healthy lunch box ideas.
