Checklist for packing school lunches
When packing a school lunch, it's essential to create a well-rounded meal that includes various food groups. Focus on incorporating protein, fruits or vegetables, a healthy snack, and a dairy or dairy alternative. Opt for whole grain options and prepare a suitable drink. Don't forget to pack necessary utensils and napkins in an insulated lunch bag with an ice pack to maintain freshness. Label the bag with your child's name and be mindful of any allergen restrictions at their school.
