Its that time of year again when the kids go back to school! Packing healthy lunches can be challenging and can get pretty boring and monotonous. This goes for adult lunch packing as well. It’s so easy to drive thru or grab lunch with coworkers, but this can get expensive and unhealthy fast. Luckily, we have rounded up 8 dietitian created and approved recipes that would be a great addition to any lunchbox (There are even a couple recipes that would be great for breakfast on the go too)!

#MomTip

“My favorite mom tip would be to invest in fun small containers to present healthy foods in a fun way. My favorites are little squeeze bottles to squeeze dressing onto veggies and the silicone muffin liners to separate finger foods or make your own lunchable style lunch with whole grain crackers, cheese chunks, and lean meat. This helps me get my pickier daughter eating a better variety.”- Jodi Vandenheuvel Danen of TheAverageRD.com

“Get your kids involved in deciding what to pack for lunch. Let them help make a grocery list or choose things while shopping. Getting buy-in will improve your chances of them eating it!”- Bridget Swinney of HealthyFoodZone.com
