Now that school is back in session, parents may find they are struggling to pack a healthy and tasty lunch for their children. Health Briefs offers a few ideas for making kids a great lunch they will like and will be good for them too.
Wraps are an easy way to get children to enjoy their lunch. The options are practically endless with variations in salad wraps, pizza wraps and sandwich wraps. Plus, they are fun to eat and easy to prepare in advance. Add something sweet and the best lunch will be gobbled up.
Cut up a variety of veggies like carrots, cucumbers, zucchini, and fresh beans and package them in snack size baggies. Make a sauce for dipping from Greek yogurt, honey and some spices or make one using sweet mustard. A yummy pizza wrap can be made with mozzarella, tomato, basil, romaine lettuce, spinach and flavored with any Italian dressing. Roll the wrap like a burrito then roll it in plastic wrap or tin foil. Other wrap varieties to try may include a salad wrap with wedges of cheddar cheese. Health Briefs TV suggests adding a cookie or a piece of chocolate to add some sweetness and dessert to the lunch. Kids will look forward to eating a tasty and fun meal, and parents will know their children are eating healthy.
