Are you hungry for healthy back to school ideas?
Lifestyle Expert Evette Rios was kind enough to talk with me recently about healthy lunchbox ideas. Here is the video from our interview.
A recent survey says, most moms believe back to school is the real new year, and 61% of moms resolve to get their families eating healthier this back to school year. Busy parents can face a huge challenge packing lunches for their kids, trying to balance convenience, cost and healthy choices. Nearly 50% of the moms surveyed say the cost of fresh produce and healthy foods is an obstacle. Parents also want to make sure their kids lunches will keep them away from any temptations in the vending machine or lunch table swaps.
Healthy Lunchbox Ideas
- Fresh can be best – Try reinventing some veggie ideas with crumbled feta cheese or whole wheat pita chips
- Include Cool Foods – New healthy snack items that your kids haven’t tried yet
- Yogurt Sundaes – Fun yogurt flavors topped with fruit and nuts are just as tasty as the higher calorie counterpart
- Look for store and package labels that indicate healthier options and a good value
