Summer came and went in what seemed like a matter of seconds. The air is slowly starting to get cool, the leaves are turning all different shades of red and orange, and your student is beginning yet another school year. Fear not! Here at Price Chopper and Market 32, we want to make your back-to-school season a smooth transition. We have put together some lunch box essentials as well as some easy lunch recipes that your child will love! Take a look below.
Protein: Protein is essential for growing bodies and minds! Examples include chicken, turkey, eggs, peanut butter, and beans.
Whole Grains: Choose whole grain options like whole wheat bread, crackers, and wraps.
Produce: Eat the rainbow! To make eating fruits and veggies more fun, try having your student pair an apple or banana with peanut butter or carrots with ranch.
Snacks: There are so many options for snacks. Your student may enjoy yogurt, cheese sticks, peanut butter or cheese crackers, nuts, seeds, or granola bars. Additionally, having treats in moderation will also make lunchtime more fun. The possibilities here are endless!
Drinks: Remember to include a bottle of water in your child’s lunchbox to keep them hydrated throughout the day.
A well-prepared lunch box sets the tone for a productive day of learning. By including a variety of nutrient-rich foods, you provide your child with the fuel they need to stay focused and engaged in their studies. Remember, variety is key—mix and match different food groups, flavors, and textures to keep lunchtime exciting and satisfying.
