Pack a Healthy Lunchbox

Nutritious lunch ideas for kids Back to school means back to the cafeteria at lunchtime! To ensure your child eats a well-balanced meal, Health Advocate’s Wellness Coaches recommend that you pack foods from at least three groups—whole grains, lean proteins, and fruits and vegetables.

Try packing one of these Coach-approved lunchtime suggestions!

  • Spinach wrap or tortilla with shredded low-fat cheddar cheese, chopped grilled chicken with a side of cut up carrots, celery and cucumbers

  • Egg salad on whole-wheat bread with tomato and lettuce and a side of fruit salad or applesauce.

  • A ½ cup of low-fat cottage cheese mixed with strawberries, blueberries and pineapple with wholegrain crackers and hummus

  • A whole-wheat pita pocket stuffed with feta cheese, grilled chicken, cherry tomatoes, olives and lettuce with a side of yogurt
