Tip: Teach kids about nutrition by including them in all aspects of meal prep, from planning to eating!
Pinwheels | Spread a flour tortilla with Dijon mustard. Arrange sliced turkey and shredded cheese in center. Top with grated carrots and chopped cucumber. Roll up and cut into pinwheels.
Soup to Go | Fill a thermos with a favorite veggie soup from the deli section of your grocery store. Pack with Kashi’s Heart to Heart Whole Grain Crackers spread with peanut butter.
Mediterranean Melody | Kids love anything they can dip! Forgo the typical sandwich for hummus with pita wedges and raw veggies. Buy all three prepackaged, if you like.
Fruit Sandy | Here’s a sweet treat you can really get behind: Mix a little apricot jam into low-fat mayonnaise and spread on whole-wheat bread. Layer with turkey, slices of apple, and lettuce.
