There’s nothing that makes lunchtime better for kids than opening their lunchbox to see one of their favorite treats inside. Especially after multiple classes and lessons, kids want to be able to enjoy their lunch when it comes time to eat. Keep your children happy and healthy with these delicious lunchbox treats for them:
Granola bars are both healthy and delicious for kids. These treats are small enough to easily fit two of them in the lunchbox for your child. Next time you go grocery shopping, bring your kid with you so they could pick out their favorite flavor!
Veggies and Dip
Kids typically don’t enjoy eating vegetables, but they may like them a lot better if you make a couple adjustments to this snack. Try cutting veggies up into smaller portions and adding a healthy dipping sauce for them to enjoy, like French onion dip.
Fruit salad is a great way to provide your child with a delicious lunchbox snack that will also be extremely healthy. Grab a small Tupperware container and throw in some grapes, sliced bananas, blueberries, and various melons. The fruit container is a sweet treat for kids.
Yogurt and Granola
The combination of yogurt and granola provides two healthy snacks in one for kids. Kids will love how easy it is to put together, and especially how tasty it turns out. Make this snack even healthier by grabbing a Greek yogurt of choice and making your own homemade granola to throw in the yogurt.
Hummus is a dip that can make tons of different snacks taste better during lunch. Putting a small amount of hummus into a container for their lunchbox is an easy way to make various snacks even tastier. Pack their hummus with snacks like pretzels, veggies, or healthy chips.
Trail mix comes in so many different flavors and combinations that your child is bound to find a favorite for lunch. These mixes typically have a healthy serving a nuts, fruits, and granola for your child to enjoy and have a nutritious snack in their lunchbox. This is another snack that can be made at home with all the proper ingredients.
Beef jerky is another convenient, easy lunchbox snack for your child. As long as you can find the all-natural, healthy beef jerky, this is a great idea for a healthy treat. Also, you can substitute beef for turkey or bison for an even healthier alternative.
Written by Stephanie Parker from Sleepingbaby.com, inventor of the Zipadee-Zip
The motto for Sleeping Baby, makers of the Zipadee-Zip, is: “Inspiring Dreams One Night at A time,” and that, in a nutshell, is how it all started…with one little dream that has since become the Parker family’s reality. When Brett and Stephanie Parker’s daughter, Charlotte, was born, the feeling that welled up inside of them was indescribable; they never realized until first looking into those baby blues of hers that they were even capable of that kind of love.
When it was time to transition baby from swaddling, the Parkers tried every sleep sack on the market and every swaddle weaning trick they could find for nearly two weeks and nothing worked to get baby Charlotte to fall and stay asleep.
Stephanie became determined to restore sleep and sanity to their household and set out to find a solution that would soothe Charlotte’s startle reflex and provide her the cozy womb-like environment she loved so much but still give her the freedom to roll over and wiggle around in her crib safely. Out of sheer desperation and exhaustion, the Zipadee-Zip was born. The first Zipadee-Zip(R) Stephanie put together on her little sewing machine worked like magic!
To date tens of thousands of Zipadee-Zips have been sold and all from word-of-mouth marketing. It is so rewarding for the Parkers to see other parents and babies getting the sleep they both need and deserve!
