Let’s face it, kids are picky. This fact alone makes packing five lunches a week a tough task! And if your little one has food allergies, you’ve got it a little harder. But don’t fret. With a little planning, you can whip up a great bagged lunch in no time.
Relying on the school to provide an allergy-free lunch for your child can often be stressful. Many food allergy parents feel better packing their child’s lunch. It’s an easy way to remain worry-free about what your child is eating at school as well as to ensure that he is getting the proper nutrients.
Here are a few tips on how to pack an allergy-free, nutritionally complete lunch for your school-age kids:
- Plan ahead! It is much easier to make a lunch menu and take a trip to the grocery store when you aren’t on a time crunch.
- Add variety to your little ones lunch so they aren’t tempted to eat off someone else’s plate.
