Lunch Box Recipes


Getting my son to eat a nutritious lunch at school is a huge concern of mine. Who am I kidding....just getting him TO eat there is a huge concern. So... I have spent hours searching the web for nutritious lunch box recipes. Throughout my journey I've found a few great sites with recipes on how to make lunch box food fun and nutritious along with tips on how to make sure they eat it. In this post, I will be sharing links to some fabulous lunch box recipes. I'll share the tips in a later post!

I've always packed my husband's lunch... but he has access to a fridge and a microwave. This was going to be a dilemma for Xr's lunches, but... some really creative moms have solved this problem for me! In some of these recipes they will share how they've overcome keeping their kid's lunches cold or hot. With these tips, lunch box recipes are as endless as your imagination!

Every parents would want their kids to be healthy and eat healthy food. But if kids find food boring, they wont eat it. To make tham eat, one should add variety in their lunch box like one can include fruits cup cakes and muffins with low calorie, try sandwich of different shapes of brown bread, brown rice with vegetable, dry fruits like apricots, raisins etc. Trying these all healthy and interesting foods, kids would love.
