Set Nutrition In Your Kid’s Lunch Boxes

Submitted by on September 28, 2009 – 9:00 amNo Comment



What to pack? What not to? Are some common questions that rise in every mom’s head when it comes to packing lunch boxes. What is healthy for a mom is not a healthy preference for the kids. Kids demand for yummy and moms are worried for making them eat something healthy. Also Kerry Neville, RD, spokeswoman for American Diet Association says “Packing nutritious foods that they’ll actually eat is an ongoing challenge.” So, how can it be possible for fulfilling both their needs at a same time, don’t worry. I have some simple and nutritious treat that will delight you as well your kid too. The solution to your ever-rising problem is simple swaps; take into consideration few wise substitutes for a nourishing lunch time retreat.

Swap a Side of Chips for Veggies and Dip
Neville prefers the single-serving carrot sticks that sops over boxes embossed with cartoon characters; kids like them this way and smilingly finish the nourishing food items. Over this idea she shares that “Individual snack packs aren’t the best environmentally, but if your child will eat a healthier food with a cartoon brand, that’s better than single-serving chips.”

Swap a Bologna Sandwich for a Turkey Rollup
Instead of serving bologna sandwiches that consists of an enormous amount of 8 grams of fat in single slice, put slices of low fat turkey over cheese. This is enough to attract the kids and also provides them with sufficient nourishment. Also, for more nourishment keep wholegrain nuts inside the lunchbox which will help in adding carbohydrates to his diet. This indulgence is enough to boost your kid with high-spirits.

Swap 5-Days-a-Week Sandwiches for Soup
This is the smartest choice to make your child eat healthy vegetables, as you can creep in loads of vegetables. During the winter times, soup is the most preferred; just add oyster crackers on the brim. This will make your kid get over the soup and also serve his request of not adding the same repetitive things in his lunch box. Make sure that you send it in a thermos so that it stays warm until the lunch time, this will help if your kid’s school doesn’t allow warming up food.

Swap White Bread for Wholegrain

Replace wheat breads with healthy whole grains as some wheat breads constitute of white flour with brown added coloring. Make it a habit that you are sure about what food are inculcated in your kid’s diet. Therefore, whole grains are the foremost choice as they are enriched with fibers, vitamin B, irons and much more. Also, be in the lookout for whole grains or whole foods into his lunch box.

Swap Juice Boxes for Milk
The American Academy of Pediatrics suggests that school going kids must not drink more than 12 oz per day; however kids are more into juices. Therefore, make him drink milk, and it will be good if your kid buys it at school itself because there it will be cool. Neville recommends “Even chocolate milk is better than soda or drinks that aren’t 100% juice.”
