Healthy Lunch ideas for Kids



Looking for some new, and healthy, lunch ideas for kids? I’ve been following Fit Yummy Mummy on facebook, and she’s doing a 21 day healthy lunch challenge with her family! She’s been sharing some great lunch ideas, and while I’m not following them exactly, I thought I’d share a few of our ideas with you all as well!

Menu for today:

  • Mini-Pitas with cream cheese, turkey, lettuce, and tomato
  • Fresh Strawberries and orange slices
  • Fresh sugar-snap peas (and ranch dip if you would like!)

I found these cute little wheat mini-pitas in the deli section of our grocery store this week and I thought they were so cute I had to try them! They are also whole wheat, and taste absolutely yummy! I’ve also found that if you make your lunches ‘look’ cute, the kids tend to be more willing to eat them!

Have some fun healthy lunch ideas to share? Leave a comment below!

    Love that plate- very cute. My dd will love that.

    Because we eat a mostly-protein breakfast, we usually eat salads for lunch- taco salad (heavy on the greens and olives, light on the meat/beans and cheese), grilled chicken salad, baked fish with a side salad, sometimes a stir fyr… I also try to introduce new ingredients for salads, like baby peas, spinach, kale, radicchio, and other flavorful greens.

    We are having a deep-fried everything binge this week for some reason, and I can tell its getting to us by the lack of energy and focus. Going to hide the deep fryer!
