Check Out My Lunch Box (with recipes)

Taste is very important to children. Lunch is a perfect time to combine good food and good nutrition. The traditional sandwich and fruit lunch is always popular. Introducing some variety and fun foods into a lunch at home or school will encourage children to try new foods.

Since whole grains are an important addition to a childĺs diet, you can prepare something a little different and fun for lunch. These lunches can be prepared at night and wrapped in plastic bags. A quick 30-second zap in the microwave should keep them warm enough for lunchtime.
