Healthy Lunch Ideas for Kids & Websites With More Ideas

One of our goals as a family this year is to become healthier by becoming more active, choosing healthier portions, and learning more about what we put into our bodies. My youngest is super fit and doesn’t need to lose weight. The rest of us are working on both weight loss and better eating.

Over the years, I’ve read everything I can get my hands on for the best way to ensure we are at optimal performance and this year, I’m slowly putting things into practice by packing my daughter healthier lunches that will increase energy and clear thinking while at school. Berries, salad, and soups have been great for her each day and she feels special that I took time to pack a lunch. It doesn’t have to be over the top.

We went out and purchased at the beginning of the year a lunchbox that included a bento box with ice pack between two levels of containers so it would keep cold foods cold. We purchased a Thermos to keep the hot foods hot so we could increase options for her lunch. Some days we use these products and other days she takes a sandwich and chips, as she is a child and enjoys the simple things sometimes.

Here are some websites where we get our ideas for lunches to send with her:

  1. I’m thinking about the lunches I had as a kid. It’s a wonder I’m still alive. lol Seriously…what a bunch of junk! I don’t eat breakfasts…lunch at 10:30, dinner at 5:00…it works for me, so there you go.

    1. I work third shift three days a week so you should see my eating schedule! It’s a wonder we lived through a lot of what we were raised with! No seat belts. Climbing trees. Actually playing outside!
