It’s time to gather school supplies, hunt down the water bottles and finally clean last year’s lunch box. It’s time for brushing up your school time breakfast and lunch making skills, Dear Readers. Make no mistakes and start the school year off right. Right? Right!
Okay, okay, stop laughing and let’s talk shop. School breakfasts and lunches can get boring pretty quickly so I thought I would share some ideas for keeping (or making) things fun.
Banana bread and peanut butter sandwiches.
Eggs with crispy pan toast cooked in olive oil.
Sweetened pan toast with ricotta cheese and a light drizzle of honey.
Nut of seed butter on whole grain bread with sliced fruit on top instead of jam.
Hummus with veggies
Cottage cheese and herb dip (whirl cottage cheese in the food processor a few seconds and it becomes creamy)
Drain plain yogurt and add what you like be that dried fruit or herbs and garlic and serve with whole grain flat bread.
Tip: pack multiple bags/containers of assorted crackers and cookies to save time and have fruits washed and ready
Pack a little note to let your child know they are loved.
Please share your ideas and tips in the comments section.
