Foods You Should Consider Adding to Your Kid's Lunch bag

For most children, eating is literally a chore! They'd be up and running but as soon as food is served, they switch off. Exception would be their favourite meal. As a parent, you'd agree that you can't keep serving them only their favourites, their diet must be balanced.

Eating at school is another story entirely, partly because you're not there and teachers/day care attendants may not have the time and patience to wait for the kid who stalls in eating the way a parent would. There’s a class full of kids to attend to. You can however pack foods they’d jump at, either by introducing new meals or tweaking daily staples.

There are proven ways to get children to eat more. Incorporating colours, using colourful dishes and unique food plating styles. Try out these meals for your children's lunch packs.

Waffles

The mere of Waffles can be intriguing to kids. They are also very versatile, you can add any topping of your choice. All you need is a waffle maker, get a good recipe online and voila!

Natural Fruits Juices

It's convenient and timesaving to pack off-the-shelf drinks for kids but try making fresh juices. One batch can last all week if well-refrigerated. You can even purchase organic juices.

Pasta with Style

God bless the inventors of pasta! Mommas' helping hand since 1700! You can up your pasta game so it doesn't be me monotonous. Add colourful veggies.

Colour-coded Fruits

When you pack a combination of fruits, try arranging them according to colours, it will appeal to your child more.

Sandwiches with a Twist

Throw in some colourful vegetables when you make sandwiches. You can use a different type of bread or tweak the dressing. Just make it extraordinary once in a while.
