Ideas for Healthy Child Lunches

I am trying to think of ideas of what to make for lunches.  Healthy ideas are really the best.  The thing is however, there are so many ideas out there, but the question is…
“Will my child eat it?”  Is your child fussy or will he/she eat anything?
If your child eats anything then you are lucky, however if your child chooses not to eat much of anything…then you might have some problems…:-)  So, here are some healthy ideas that may make your problems as far as what to make for lunch, not so worrisome.  I mean we really do worry.
Are they eating enough?  Are they getting enough nutrients?   So here are some ideas that may help…
Sandwiches…
1.  Make them fun:
Try cutting sandwiches into triangles or use cookie cutters to make different shapes.  This may get your child more interested in eating and help to ensure he/she eats lunch.
2.  Make them different:
Change the kind of bread.  Your child may think he/she only likes white bread, but if you try  different grains this will make it more interesting and healthier.  Change the type of bread as well.
Change the type of bread, try using bread, tortillas, pitas or bagels for example.  *Be careful of the bagels, however, as they can be a choking hazard, so cut them into smaller pieces, even slice them thinly.
Use different meats and cheeses.  Make sure it is a healthier meat not too much salt.   Even try shredding the cheese for something different and put shredded carrots in the lunch with them.
Be sure to include fruits and vegetables in the mix too.
Children like dips too.  So they can dip the veggies in yummy dips.  This will help the children to eat more veggies.   Blog with yummy dips to follow!!

Jill

Healthy Sources of Protein

Some healthy protein sources that you may not have thought about.

Of course there is meat…

But beans are an excellent source of protein and so is quinoa.

Also, a handful of almond is an excellent source.

*Even just a small amount is enough.

For me the energy source is important.

Now what I like to do is to make healthy protein shakes.

There are over 100 different recipes and you can try whatever you like!
