10 Best Lunches to Feed Your Children


Feeding your children a healthy lunch is an important step to keeping them eating healthy all day. Lunch tends to be the time where we snack and eat junk food. If your kids are in school, they are especially focused on lunch time. With the reduction of recess times, lunch may be the only time in their school day where they get a break.

Kids can be very picky when it comes to what they eat for lunch. At school, children trade pieces of their packed lunches for their favorite treats. While you may pack healthy food, if they don’t like it then the won’t eat it. The trick is to pack healthy food while making it delicious. You also have to consider the nutrients your children need for their growing bodies. Toddlers need different amounts of protein than teenagers.
