Need fun lunch box ideas for back-to-school? Here’s a fun Bento Box Fondue idea!
Back to school is a great time to think about packing healthier lunch boxes for our kids (and ourselves). And, by healthy, I don’t mean boring. Healthy can be fun!
I remember when I was in school (many, many moons ago) I had the same thing for lunch every day. I’m not complaining. I loved the lunch that my parents packed. It’s was your basic sandwich, something sweet and a piece of fruit or some veggies. Pretty standard stuff all packed neatly into a brown paper bag.
Today, though, there are so many fun options. I’m in love with Bento Boxes. With all of the little compartments there are so many ways you can get creative. Which makes me wonder…do kids even bring brown paper bags any more?!?
I have learned that my son will eat more veggies and whole grains if I present them in a fun way. Plus, he loves to be the envy of the lunch room when he opens his lunch and finds something fun and unique (and healthy) tucked inside.
These are the tools I used for this recipe:
- ¼ cup lowfat Greek yogurt
- 2 tsp . sunflower seed butter
- 2 tsp . agave nectar
- ¼ tsp . cinnamon
- 5 slices apple
- ½ GROW banana sliced
- 4 strawberries
- 2 Tbsp . salsa Ranch dressing
- 2 in Pero Family Farms® mini sweet peppers cut half
- 4 broccoli florets
- 2 slices low sodium turkey rolled
- 1 slice lowfat Cheddar cheese
- Mix yogurt, sunflower seed butter, agave and cinnamon in small bowl.
- Assemble remaining ingredients into bento box.
