We have compiled some helpful tips for packing healthy lunches for kid’s lunches as they go back to school.
-First, have your children help pack their lunch.
-For younger children, give them a couple of options, and have them choose what they want in their lunches.
-For older children, you might be able to let them pack their own lunches.
-Give them a guide of what food groups should be included in their lunch.
