Summer always seems to go by in a flash –– before you know it; it’s time to trade in your beach gear and laid back summer schedule for school lunches and busier work days. These ideas for packable lunches and easy weeknight dinners will help keep you and the whole family eating right when time is tight.
This kid-friendly wrap is a tasty alternative to your typical turkey or ham sandwich. Serving salmon is a great way to increase the amount of omega-3 EPA and DHA in kids’ (and adults’) diets. Pack in an insulated lunch bag with an ice pack, and include a side of baby carrots and cup of yogurt for a complete lunch.
Trade in your traditional tuna sandwich for a fresher take that offers up a variety of crunchy veggies in a spinach tortilla. You can pre-cut the veggies over the weekend to decrease prep time. Serve with baby grape tomatoes, whole grain corn chips, and hummus.
This is a travel friendly lunch, perfect for older school-age kids and parents alike. Serve with whole wheat pita triangles and a piece of fruit for a balanced lunch. For a fun twist, use a star shaped cookie cutter to cut the pita into stars.
