Healthy Packing Tips
"Tie your shoes, pack a good lunch and remember that we're all in this together."
When packing lunches for the kids, try to keep the MyPlate method in mind.
Start with the main focus of the lunch, typically a sandwich or something protein-focused, and incorporate the grains category. After that, the only thing is packing some fruit, vegetables, and a dairy element, and your child has a nice balanced lunch!
