Need ideas for what to pack for your kids' lunches this week? Look no further. Here are our favorite easy-to-make, healthy school lunches. We've updated this post since it was originally posted to add a few pro tips from the parents at Boston Organics.
Mention school lunches to a parent and you’re guaranteed to get an emotional response. We all remember the barely edible “food” that our own school cafeterias served, and while some schools are doing a better job of providing their students with tasty and nutritious lunch options, packing a lunch is still the best way to make sure our kids stay energized and ready to learn all day long.
Making healthy lunches for your children also teaches them positive eating habits for the future. But when it comes to school lunches, there’s nothing worse than having your kid throw out a meal that you spent money, time and energy putting together.
With junk food more accessible than ever, we want to make sure our kids are eating right when we’re not there. Below are five tips for packing a healthy school lunch that your kids will actually eat.
Whether your chilcren are heading to school for the first time or returning after a fun-filled summer or even if it's your second semester of an MBA program, feeding yourself and your kids during the school day can be the difference between feeling energized and ready-to-learn or dull and dragging.
While many people associate the catchall term 'squash' with the chilly winter months, summer squash varieties are a staple of the sunny season. As pleasant and colorful as our beautiful summers these seasonal beauties come in glorious shades of yellow and green and can add body and flavor to everything from quick breads and muffins to soups, stews, tacos, salad and more! Think of summer squash as a term for any of the soft-rind squashes of the warm season.
Summer squashes are among our favorite summer vegetables. They are versatile, easy to cook, low in calories and lend themselves to numerous summer dishes from summery salads, to soups, stews, tacos and more! Whether roasted, grilled, bakes, fried, sauteed or served raw local, in-season summer squashes are sure to please! Fresh summer squashes will generally last numerous days in the refrigerator - store unwashed in a plastic bag until you're ready to use them.
It's late summer which means the days are getting a little bit shorter and the nights are getting a little bit cooler. What this also means is that a plethora of pepper varieties are reaching their full maturity, turning into their ultimate color destiny and finding themselves in many Boston Organics' produce boxes! To celebrate peak pepper season we created The Boston Organics Pepper Guide. Check it out!
Blueberries are blue, sweet potatoes are sweet (though not actually potatoes), peaches are peachy but eggplants?!? Where did they ever get that moniker? While it's possible to make a delicious eggplant omelet, a hen's contritbution is required!
Summer starts a little later in New England than in other parts of the country, but when it finally gets here we're treated to a delicious bounty of stone fruit, greens, and other delicious treats. For new Boston Organics customers, there might occasionally be items in your box that you're not familiar with. We've put together our Summer Produce Guide to provide you with a snapshot of what's to come this season.
