    Tips to Preparing Kids’ School Lunches + Save $5 at Organize.com

    Parents have many concerns as a new school year approaches. From school sports to school supplies, it all seems equally important. However, one of the most crucial things parents should worry about is their children’s nutrition.  School lunches may not be as nutritious as you may have hoped, that is why many parents have chosen to send their children to school with home cooked (or packed) lunches. With the increase in childhood obesity, high blood pressure and cholesterol, this is a wonderful idea!

    Some things to remember when packing your child’s lunch:

    • Whole grain carbs are much healthier than white flours/pastas or other refined carbohydrates. Refined carbohydrates turn to sugar which then turns to fat aiding in the obesity epidemic.
    • Skip the chips and the cupcakes. Processed foods wreak havoc on little bodies causing children to ‘crash’ after lunch.
    • Also avoid sugar laden treats and high fructose corn syrup which is damaging to growing bodies and minds.
    • Fruit is a healthy and delicious dessert with good-for-you sugars.
    • The fiber found in many vegetables keeps children fuller longer.
    • Bento style lunch boxes make preparing lunch a snap which can be easily found at Organize.com which is currently offering $5 off your purchase when you spend $40 with coupon code SR540.
    • There is more power in numbers. Get a group of parents together to trade lunch ideas. Your kids are more likely to eat something healthy if all of their friends are eating it as well.
    • Lastly, do your research. Google your little hearts out. There are plenty of books, blogs, articles, and websites to help you prepare the best food for your children. (Some great blogs to check out: Oh She Glows, GF Vegan Mom, The Wellness Junkie, Healthy Happy Life). Don’t forget Pinterest which has a wealth of information and pictures!

    Here are some health child-approved lunch ideas:

    • Whole grain pasta with vegetables
    • Club sandwiches (some deli meat and lots of veggies) on whole grain bread
    • Veggie burgers
    • Turkey and cheese rollups (in whole grain tortillas)
    • Rice and beans
    • Cucumber sandwich
    • Grilled veggie sandwich
    • Almond butter and jelly sandwich (on whole grain bread)
    • Meat, cheese, and veggie skewers
    • Chili
    • Homemade pizza on a whole grain tortilla (just pop it in the toaster oven)
    • Tuna and crackers

    And dessert and snack ideas can include many fruits, vegetables with dipping sauces (such as hummus, almond butter, etc.), homemade trail mix, or granola bars.
