Many parents are wondering what healthy lunches their kids can pack for themselves in preparation for the new school year.

Here are 5 of the best healthy lunches for back-to-school:

1. A salad with grilled chicken or shrimp is a great way to ensure a balanced meal and plenty of vitamins and minerals.

2. A grain-based sandwich, like a wrap or burrito bowl, is another easy and healthful option. This sandwich contains whole grains, essential for good digestion and satiety.

3. A fruit smoothie is yet another easy and healthy option. This delicious drink provides a great source of vitamins, minerals, and fibre.

4. A grilled chicken or turkey sandwich on whole-grain bread with a side of fresh fruit is an excellent lunch for kids in the back-to-school season.

5. A veggie wrap is an excellent option for those looking for something hearty and filling but also low in calories. Hummus is a perfect ingredient to add extra flavour and nutrients to this sandwich.

Grilled Chicken/Shrimp Salad: 

Salads are a great way to get your daily dose of vegetables, and this Grilled Chicken Shrimp Salad is no exception! The shrimp are grilled until they are slightly charred, and the salad is topped with a delicious honey vinaigrette. This salad is perfect for a summer meal!

Burrito Bowl: 

I’m unsure if anything is more comforting than a big, warm burrito. But, what do you do when you’re trying to be healthy and watch your calorie intake? You make a burrito bowl! A burrito bowl is just like it sounds – a bowl filled with all of the delicious toppings you would put on your average burrito, minus the tortilla. This way, you can customize your perfect meal without worrying about exceeding your daily calorie limit.
