No matter what form of child care you have enrolled your pre-schooler in, you will no doubt be struggling to think of things to put into their lunch boxes. While there are many packaged treats and snacks at the supermarket, many don’t meet the mark for nutritional value. Instead, they are often high in fat, sugar, additives, preservatives, and salt. For a growing child, it’s important to select more natural ingredients.
However, knowing some supermarket options are not suitable doesn’t solve your predicament. You need to fill your children’s lunchboxes with something, so what will it be? When the time comes to enroll your children in child care, the following lunch box ideas may help.
Yoghurt is a firm favourite in many households for many reasons. The kids never tire of it because it comes in so many flavours, too. You can opt for the natural fruit variety with real fruit and tangy natural yoghurt. Or, you can ensure your children get all the calcium they need with vanilla, chocolate, banana, and similar options. Alternatively, you can swap the individual pottles for home-made yoghurt you pack and prepare yourself.
When you send your children off to child care with yoghurt, be sure to include a plastic spoon as well as a zip-lock bag to put the pottle in. By doing so, you can save a lot of mess to clean out of the lunch box.
