Monday Meanderings - Lunchtime

In Fayette County, the public schools are back in session this week so I am doing another post on healthy lunches.

This first link is Obento Baby. Most of the meals are for smaller children. My favorite thing about bento lunches is that there is a variety of items in the boxes so the kids (or adults) are getting a good variety of colors and tastes. I mean, seriously anyone can eat one carrot. Right?

Next up is Maisie Eats Bento. This is a great blog for ideas for lunch and snack bentos. There are fresh takes on old classics that kids love.

Healthy Lunch Idea epitomizes exactly what I am going for. A healthy alternative to the processed foods that schools serve. This is not just geared towards kids though, adults need to eat healthy also.

I hope you will take the time to explore these links and to talk to your child about making healthy choices. When you get the school menu, sit down and go over it with the kids and talk about the healthy choices on there. It is fine to eat an occasional treat but kids need vitamins and minerals to make it through a long day at school.
