Healthy Kids Lunch Ideas for School

It’s easy to get in a rut with packed lunches. Below you’ll find a list of different components that can go together to make a healthy, satisfying packed meal. Whole grains, produce, and protein should always be part of the equation. I include examples in some of the categories, but there are so many other options. There’s no need to pack the same boring lunch day after day.
