You’ve bought a couple of insulated lunch bags for your kiddos. What next? Over here at ParentsWorld, we are one step ahead of your every need! Listed below are 5 easy to fix, healthy lunch ideas that can be made within minutes by you or your kids. All smiles with filled up tummies once you’re done!
Akin to the Subway favourite, you can never go wrong with these easy to purchase cold meat trio. Spread mustard on one slice of bread and tomato sauce on another. Grab a slice of store-bought turkey ham, salami, bologna and slap them on either side of bread. Finely slice any kind of greens and hide it within the meat. I will also recommend an option of adding in a slice of your desired cheese between the layer of meat. Once you are done, finish it off with more sauces if you must or place the meatless slice of bread over.
As we know it… kids LOVE Pizza! What you can do here is buy readymade tortilla wraps and basically, fill it up with anything your kids’ love! First, heat up a pan and place the tortilla wrap on it and heat it up for a rough estimate of 2 minutes on each side. After, spread 1-1/2 tablespoon of spaghetti sauce on the tortilla. Once the sauce is spread, sprinkle on any kind of protein(hot/cold) and vegetables, top it off with grated parmesan or mozzarella and pop them in a microwave for 15 seconds. Once the cheese has melted over the ingredients, take it out to cool, wrap them up like a burrito or fold them over like a quesadilla and you’re good to go!
Another go-to snack will have to be a fruity variation of a chip and dip. In this case, we’re going with Apple chips and a Peanut Butter dip! That’s right! All you have to do is slice an Apple thinly and following Crazyforcrust’s 3-ingredient peanut butter dip(which can be viewed here). You can also substitute Apple chips with Carrots, Celeries or anything desired by the kids! Trust us, this chips and dip combo is a guaranteed knockout!
Like the header suggests, a variant of a good ol’ classic lunch will have to be a tuna sandwich. All you need are 2 slices of bread, mayonnaise, a tin of tuna, a mixture of vegetables and you’re done! Mix the tuna in with a spoonful of mayonnaise and chopped up vegetables in a bowl and spread in on the slices of bread after. Not only is it a practical lunch but, it is an effortless fix and a healthy meal too!
That’s right! If you’ve a plate of leftovers from the night before, boil up a fraction of your desired pasta noodles, heat up a pan, throw in your plate of leftovers mix it up with the boiled pasta and you’re done! You can even spruce it up by adding in any kind of spaghetti sauce you have laying around the kitchen or add in 2 tablespoons of olive oil to whip up your very own leftover aglio olio!
