It turns out my kids don't eat too much lunch at school. Why? The faster they eat, the sooner they can get out to play at recess.
I have worked hard to make lunches that will be so enticing that they will eat some of it (even a sunflower seed butter and chocolate chip sandwich when I was really desperate!).
My main nutrition strategy, though, is to give them breakfasts that have lots of good stuff, so even if they just eat a bit of lunch, they won't be too worse for wear.
On The Balanced Platter today, I highlight some of my favorite ideas for breakfast (and have my recipe for fruit-sweetened granola). Please stop by and add some ideas of your own.
