The Awesome Lunch Box
- Chocolate Pudding: This pudding doesn’t come in a disposable cup with a peel-off top; no – this recipe is much better in so many ways! This recipe tastes awesome; just follow instructions in the video above and you'll have a delicious, healthy pudding in no time.
- Rocks: For some reason, children like to name their foods after things they’re not supposed to eat. So, help them out and make them some Rocks. For this one, you will want to get some chunks of fruit, such as pineapple, strawberries, pears, apples, grapes, or cherries. Dip the cold fruit in melted dark chocolate, then place them on a sheet pan lined with parchment. Remember to add something to their lunch box to keep it cool, so that the chocolate doesn’t melt.
- Hummus: Hummus is a wonderful dip; not only for you, but for your children too. Send slices of red bell peppers, carrots, cucumbers, and whole wheat crackers for dipping.
- Good Chips: Kale chips are a great alternative to regular potato and tortilla chips. Rinse and dry the kale. Remove the leaves from the stems. Cut the leaves into chip-size shapes, and spread them on a lined cookie sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 10 minutes. When they come out, they’re crispy – just like chips! Package them in a cute, sturdy box, so they don’t get crunched.
Hopefully these recipes will make for an awesome lunch box. Awesome for the children because they taste good, and awesome for you because you know you’ve snuck healthy food into their bellies.
