LUNCH IDEA FOR KIDSPosted by NWEKE ADA

food, kids, lunch

Preparing your kids' lunch can seem like a lot of work especially if you are health conscious but, the stress can be limited if parents/guardians know ahead of time, what to pack for their kids.

 

Lunchtime should be a source of comfort, so having a list of easy, yummy, and nutritious meals that the kids will love to eat can go a long way towards making the lunch packing (and eating) efforts much easier on everyone.

 

 

 

Time seems to run too fast in the morning and thinking about what to pack early can cause delays, confusion, unnecessary stress, and lateness to school 

 

Below are easy to make and kids friendly lunch ideas

 

MONDAY: Typical food for Monday might be leftover from Sunday's food.  Fried rice and chicken, rice and stew, a fruit, snack, juice, and water

 

TUESDAY: Jollof spaghetti with hotdog(it is really easy to make in the morning),  a fruit, snack,  juice, and water.

 

WEDNESDAY: Noodles and boiled egg, a fruit, snack, juice, and water

 

THURSDAY: spaghetti with tomato stew, fruit, snack, juice, and water

 

FRIDAY: Beans and plantain, fruit, snack, juice, and water

    Fried potato with ketchup and scrambled eggs 

 

    Sweet potato porridge with fish

 

    Spaghetti with tomato stew and egg

 

Snacks don’t necessarily have to be biscuit always. You can add puff-puff, sausage, meat pie, small chops, or even a club sandwich.

 

The same goes for fruits to take- apple, shredded carrot, sliced watermelon, peeled orange in small bits, sliced cucumber, grape, banana.

 

Some meals can be prepared the night below and can be heated again in the morning. You can also repeat food during the cause of the week. 

 

These ideas are just a guide to reduce stress and to avoid delays in the morning.

 

Enjoy using it and have fun packing snacks and food for your kids!
