Back To School Lunch Ideas

Back to School is here and with that is the pressure for parents to provide healthy, nutritious lunches that meet today's Pinterest standards.  Seems impossible right?  It's not! As a dietitian I recommend including just 3 food groups in your kids lunch, so a lean protein sandwich on whole grain bread with a side of fruit would totally get you there.  Add cheese and we have another food group...winning! 

If you need a dose of inspiration then I have the online resource for you.  The folks at Annie's, Applegate, Honest Kids and Rudi's Organic Bakery created Rock the Lunch Box.

Rock the Lunch Box is an online resource where parents can sign up to receive coupons from the brands they trust and search for rocking lunch ideas and inspiration to make packing a better lunch box easier.

Last week I visited NBC Miami with creative yet simple lunch box ideas.  Keyword - SIMPLE!

Love and cartoon lunch boxes,
