Jeremiah starts school again in just one short week. I really meant to get all my back to school shopping done before baby's arrival...but baby Frank had other plans...and thats all good too... (:
It seems aside from all the shopping, and making sure the kids are prepared the next big challenge is making sure they eat a healthy meal at school...would you agree?
We are pretty lucky to have a great lunch program at Jeremiah's charter school but I'll be home from work for the rest of the year so I can give baby and kids lots of snuggles... and this means we will definitely be on a budget.
Walmart recently contacted me asking me if I could share some healthy lunchbox ideas with you. They sent me a gift card to shop their assortment of healthier food options in order to create healthy lunchbox options...here's what I came up with...
chicken salad: shredded chicken, a little mayo, seasoning and a can of veggies ( I have to thank grandma for this quick, easy and yummy recipe) served with Tostada pieces.
mashed sweet potatoes
and a sweet and salty trail mix
whole wheat tortilla rolls up's: cream cheese, avocado and deli meat of your choice rolled up in a whole wheat tortilla and cut up in rolls
berries, melon and grapes
Salmon burger: canned salmon mixed with a little mayo, lime juice, seasoning, leaf lettuce, all in a bun
All very easy to make.
To celebrate back to school, Walmart wants to send one of you a $25 gift card to help you make a healthier lunchbox for your kiddos.
Leave me a comment telling me your best tip for making a healthy lunchbox or tell me a challenge you face. I will randomly pick a winner on September 4th at 11:59pm. US only. Make sure you include your email address if not already on your profile.
