Breakfast is certainly an important meal for school-age children; it gets the day going and hopefully keeps them full and focused until lunchtime. Once that bell rings, it’s off to the cafeteria to eat lunch —to recharge and refuel for the remainder of the day.
School lunches get a notoriously bad rap. They are photographed, posted to social media, envied, and ridiculed. Homemade packed lunches do not escape this treatment, with Instagram photos of incredible bento boxes made by star parents, cookie cutter crust-less sandwiches, and other mouthwatering delights made by parents for their children’s school lunch.
If you are struggling for ideas and need some inspiration, do not fret. There are countless recipes to fall back on. Rather than relying on packaged, processed, highly refined foods (the kind that children tend to love), work a few of these easy and tasty meals into your weekly repertoire and know that you are sending your children to school with a lunch that will fuel them through their day.
