- Try “breakfast for lunch,” just to shake things up a bit. Make a scrambled egg burrito loaded with cheese and veggies and wrap it in a whole wheat tortilla. Or make a variation on a fast food egg sandwich by placing a poached egg and a slice of ham and cheese on an English muffin. Not into eggs? How about French toast sliced into strips, packed alongside some applesauce for dipping. A muffin, fruit, yogurt, and granola also makes a healthy “breakfast as lunch” choice.
- Do a “soup and salad” week. Pack a thermos with a different nutritious soup each day, such as lentil, tomato, chicken, or chili. Match the soup with a salad in a bag (or a take-away plastic container) with your child’s favorite dressing. Throw in some breadsticks to round out the meal.
- Pick a theme and use leftovers to accomplish it. One week, take your son to Italy with a meatball sandwich, cold tortellini salad, or pasta with pesto. The next week, take him to Mexico by making a burrito with beans and leftover rice, or pitas stuffed with shredded beef and cheese. Using leftovers isn’t just thrifty – it’s also a great way to help save time in the morning.
