This past Saturday, the Sound Dietitians team had a blast talking about planning healthy lunches and doing some hands-on prep with kids and families at Verdant Community Wellness Center. This was an excellent way to conclude Kids Eat Right Month and prepare for the start of school. Some of our participants will be starting classes again in just a week or two! Here are a few highlights and a favorite recipe from our class.
Three Steps to Healthy Lunches
1. Planning: Get kids involved in the planning process
2. Preparation: Practice food prep skills and food safety with your children
3. Packing: Put it all together for a nutritious and safe lunch
Nutrition: (for example combination – ½ C quinoa; ½ C mixed edamame/cherry tomatoes/orange bell pepper; sugar snap peas; 1 Tablespoon sunflower seeds, 2 teaspoons Balsamic vinaigrette dressing)
Happy planning, prepping, and packing ~ Wishing you all an excellent start to a new school year!
