This year I am going to let the kids have a bigger part in prepping their own lunches. I found this helpful chart at Whole Life Nutrition and tweaked it a bit. I added berries, red grapes and watermelon to the fruits; broccoli to the veggies; whole grain bread to the whole grain; edamame, peanut butter, almond butter and rotisserie or grilled chicken to the protein; and pumpkin muffins and banana bread to the treats. If you have any ideas to share, please add them to the comments. (Gina)
