Lunch Ideas for kids

As a parent with a school aged daughter, I find one of the hardest things to do is come up lunch ideas for her. Although I can not claim that her lunches are always the healthiest, I do try to make them colorful and fun.

I often get asked for tips from parents and my biggest suggestions are to get a few cookie cutters and try to buy a variety of brightly colored fruit/veggies etc.

Living in Manitoba, I find it hard to find a variety of good quality fresh & colorful fruits in the winter, but I just to the best I can with the options that are available.

It’s time to show you what was in my daughter’s lunch box again today.

  • raspberry & grape kabobs

  • yogurt covered raisins

This Fun lunch was packed in a Planet Box.
