It will soon be time for parents to start packing school lunches again.

However, it’s important kids are eating a balanced diet.

A healthy lunch should include a good protein, whole grains, fruits and veggies.

Parents can make a simple deli sandwich or wrap. Another option is putting together a snack box, which includes deli meat, cheese, crackers, a crunchy veggie, and a snack your child can choose.

As far as drinks go, try to avoid anything sugary and give your child water or white milk instead.

You’re also going to want to give kids something they will obviously eat, and will also give them fuel through the day.
