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.
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.
Radishes are one of the hardiest vegetables known to man. They grow quickly, suffer from relatively few pests or diseases, can be harvested easily and almost the entire plant is edible. Did you know that radishes are excellent both raw and cooked?!?
RECIPE #7: VEGETABLE FRITTATA
What's great for breakfast, lunch or dinner; makes good use of the contents of your organic vegetable box and allows you to be creative? Why a vegetable frittata of course!!
It's the perfect answer to what's for dinner when everyone has gotten home late. Special enough for guests for brunch. While you're at it make two because leftovers are egg-cellent! Wonderful thrown in a pita for a brown bag lunch. Or eaten on the fly for breakfast when you're heading out the door in the morning.
Once you've got a few basic principles down, throw on your chef's hat, open the fridge to pull out whatever you've got on hand and get cooking!
Thanksgiving is almost here and we're dreaming about all the wholesome dishes we can make with this season's produce. In anticipation of the big day, we've collected all the Thanksgiving dishes from the Boston Organics recipe database and posted them on the blog.
