1 Month of Lunchbox Ideas for Tweens and Teens
The teenage years have hit our home and let me tell you as the mother of two teenage boys they can literally ‘eat you out of house and home!’ I completely understand that phrase now. They eat and I barely get the kitchen cleaned when they’re hungry again. I’m trying to fill them with healthy and nutritious foods not junk. School lunches are a particular concern. I try to remember when packing their lunches that meals high in fiber and protein will keep them full longer.
They both run cross country and need fuel for that running. In addition, the mere fact that they’re growing ‘leaps and bounds’ and growing out of their jeans every two months leaves me struggling for healthy, fun, portable foods for them. If you’re in the same, or similar, situation check out the list I put together for 1 Month of Lunchbox Ideas for Tweens and Teens.
