Healthy Dad Approved School Lunch Ideas

Are you tired of the same old school lunch options that leave your little one feeling sluggish and uninspired? Look no further! I've compiled a list of amazing and healthy lunch ideas that are not only kid-friendly but also Healthy Dad approved . These lunches are packed with nutrition to keep your child in tip-top shape throughout the school day.

How to Prepare Healthy and Delicious School Lunches

Invest in a quality lunch box like the PlanetBox Rover (we have one for each child) to make packing meals a breeze. These eco-friendly lunch boxes come with various compartments, perfect for including a mix of fruits, veggies, nuts, and other snacks to keep your child energized throughout the day.

The Main Course

Ancient grains, especially freshly ground einkorn wheat, are the bedrock for most healthy lunch ideas that we use. These grains are packed with fiber and essential nutrients, making them a wholesome choice for your little one(s).

Some of our favorite lunch entrees:

Healthy Sides

Incorporate a colorful and refreshing fruit medley into your child's lunch box. Opt for seasonal fruits such as berries, mango, kiwi, and oranges to provide a dose of vitamins and natural sweetness. Remember, a variety of fruits ensures a range of nutrients for your little one.

Fresh Fruit Medley

Ditch the store-bought snacks loaded with preservatives and opt for homemade snacks instead. Fill small containers with soaked and dehydrated nuts, seeds, ancient grain sourdough crackers, and dried fruits for a balanced and satisfying mid-day munch.

Prepare DIY smoothie pouches by blending together fresh fruits, leafy greens, yogurt, and a hint of honey. Pour the mix into reusable pouches and freeze them, allowing your child to enjoy a nutritious and cooling treat at lunchtime.

Keeping Lunchtime Exciting and Nourishing

By incorporating these healthy lunch ideas into your child's daily routine, you can ensure that they receive the right blend of nutrients to fuel their body and mind. Remember, a well-balanced meal is key to improved concentration, energy levels, and overall well-being.

So, say goodbye to mundane lunches and hello to a world of exciting and nourishing meal options that will have both you and your little one cheering for more!
