Reintroduce your kids to fruits and vegetables.

Shop for produce that’s in season and you’ll find the healthy fare on sale. Because kids love finger foods, baby carrots in individual bags are a great choice year-round. If fruits and vegetables are kids’ only choice for snacks and dessert at home, they get used to eating and liking produce.

Don’t pack unfamiliar eats.

Never pack foods that your kids have not tried at home. This is a surefire way that children will dump good food in the trash.

Go half and half.

If your kids are not used to eating whole-grain breads, then don’t pack their lunches with only whole-wheat bread. They will hate it. Introduce these breads slowly. A little peanut butter and jelly help. Alternate one lunch with white bread and the other with wheat. You don’t have to make the switch immediately; slow and steady wins the race.

Plan several lunches at one time on the weekends when you are not stressed.

Prepping in advance and practicing making nutritious lunches allow you to maintain the well-being of your clan and limit morning chaos.

Get involved and find out what school lunches are like.

Many schools are working to improve the nutritional quality of lunches. Ask for things like a salad bar with fresh fruits and vegetables. Several schools have installed them at the request of parents and students. Know what your kids are eating and ensure that you agree with it.
