I know I am not alone as a parent in my quest to put healthy, yet appetizing, meals into my kids school lunchboxes everyday. Yes, there are those days during the crazy morning rush when think it would be SO convenient to just let them eat at the cafeteria every day, but one look at the school’s daily lunch menu (breaded and smothered chicken surprise anyone?) quickly cures me of that momentary urge.
Enter the FOODNETWORK.COM’s family-friendly Back-to-School recipes! When The Food Network contacted me about sharing some easy-to-prepare, kid’s school lunch ideas for alternatives to turkey sandwiches and other usual suspects, I was happy to oblige.
One of my daughters is quite picky when it comes to trying new things to eat, so no amount of creativity gets her excited about lunch – so far. As far as she’s concerned, if it’s new it must be suspect, therefore, bad.
My 9-year old, on the other hand, is willing to try anything once and she LOVES tacos, so giving the Food Network’s Taco Bar Lunch Box a try was a no-brainer, as well as a big hit (let’s see if it remains so when I start making it Every. Single. Week. Hey, It works for the bologna!):
For more kids school lunch ideas, The Food Network has a whole section dedicated to putting the fun back (or for the first time?) into morning lunch prep. Check it out: http://bit.ly/15KidApprovedLunches. Enjoy!
