Most parents desire for their children to always have the best things in their life, and this goes for everything from emotional stability to creature comforts to good health, but because most parents want their children to also be happy, they often fail in the department of good health. Making those tough decisions that will enable your children to be healthy, even when it goes against what your child wants at the time, can be quite difficult as a parent at times; when you send your children to school with a lunch, you cannot guarantee that they will actually eat the lunch (rather than trading it with others, or getting something different at school) but if you pack them a healthy lunch, you will at least be putting them on the right path.The foundation of a healthy lunch is that they have sustenance that will keep them full and energized for the rest of the day; for sustenance, the best thing to do is pack your child a sandwich. Even though they may not actually eat it, it is also good to pack them fruit; as important as fruit is for adults, it is even more important for children, so make an effort to find a fruit that they like – or, to find a dried fruit that they like – and make sure they have this in their lunch when they go to school. Another way to keep your children healthy is by making sure they have snacks to munch on throughout the day; a couple great ideas in this department are Cheerios and granola, which you can pack in a plastic baggie for them to pull out whenever they need a couple handfuls of snack. And since most of the other children at your child’s school probably do not have healthy lunches, you may also want to give your child some form of desert, so keep your eyes out for “healthy” desserts, and you will be able to keep your child feeling like they are not missing out!
