You know your child best, so you know which of these options will fly, and which will come home uneaten in the lunch box. The point is to mix things up and find creative ways to make your child’s lunch healthier. Whipping up a few batches of a homemade version of a store bought favorite is also a great idea. You eliminate the unhealthy ingredients found in processed foods, but your child assumes they are enjoying the same delicious fare as always.
Another great option is to involve your child in choosing food for his or her lunch. You can offer several options and let him or her make the final choice. A child might be reluctant to eat a healthy, unfamiliar selection if it just shows up in the lunch box, but if he picked it for himself, the experience might be considered an exciting adventure.
Introducing your child to healthy food can be a challenge, but it is something she will appreciate for the rest of her life.
