Healthy and Simple Kids’ Lunches
Here are some ideas for you! This is what I do for my little boy, Logan, and please feel free to ask me for more ideas, my mind never stops generating them!
You can also follow me on Facebook where I post weekly videos of my son's lunches.
Cut-up chicken with different spices (My son likes olives, salt and pepper with olive oil or butter.)
Instructions: cook any kind of chicken, bone less, ether on a pan or in the oven is easier, before cooking it put the spices your kids like. Then cut it up and distribute equally between the different lunch packets, add in olives and butter or olive oil.)
Homemade meat balls (Well, my son loves olives, so I usually make these balls with an olive hidden inside to surprise my baby!)
1 lb ground beef
3 Tablespoon ground parmigiana cheese
Splash of Olive oil
Splash of soy sauce (or liquid aminos, coconut aminos, or you can skip this)
Splash of red wine (the alcohol will cook off, so only flavor remains)
Salt and pepper
Mix all together and make little balls with an olive in the middle.
Sugar free sausage (Sugar is bad, most sausage contain sugar as a preservative. I get the Italian Organic sausages from Publix because they do not contain sugar)
Instructions: the Publix once are cooked already so you just need to cut them up and put them in your kids’ lunches.
Carrots and Broccoli
Peas and Carrots
Mushrooms and Onions
Cherry tomatoes and olives
Instructions: ether cook them or not whatever your child likes.
And add to lunch bag.
Fruit pouches (or fruit and veggie pouches.)
Instructions: obviously the above need to be with no added sugars.
Add to lunch bag.
Sweet potato chips
Sweet potato mush
Instructions: Just bake the potato at 400 till it is soft in the middle (1 hour or so)
Then mush it all up in a bowl with some salt and butter.
Add to lunch bag.
Also, anything with brown rice is okey in small amounts, rice cakes, rice salad, etc.
You can make an easy rice salad: just mix some cold brown rice with diced cheese, diced ham, olives, some Mayo and salt. DONE! Delish!
Plain whole yogurt
I know a lot of mothers like to give pickles to their kids. My son loves them too, but you need to be very careful because most contain sugars. Do your research.
Here is a list of materials you will need, and you can find my favorite tools here.
Stable data when feeding a child … or any human being really.
NO SUGAR, WHEAT and GRAINS.
You start giving the above to a child they will become addicted, you will have a hard time having them eat right, veggies and protein. You will find yourself with a child with extra tantrums and all they are going to want to eat is pizza, pasta, chips, candy, ice-cream, etc. If you have a child that has problems eating it is because he has been consuming sugars and/or wheat and grains. Take them off his diet and after a few days you will see him eat veggies and protein no problem, and you will have a much calmer child. Try it out if you don't believe me. Please feel free to ask me for help if you need.
