2020 has been a weird year, to say the least. And, while starting back to school should be something fun, exciting, and certain in a child’s life it’s been anything but those things. One thing that should not be compromised is the health of our children. And, these 25 vegan lunch ideas for kids compromise nothing.
Vegan Lunch Ideas For Kids
Packing a healthy vegan lunch for your kids might seem like a daunting task. But, it’s actually pretty simple. It’s also much more cost-effective than you might realize. Recipes like pasta, soups, and even the occasional PB & J are great examples. And, you can serve them with delicious raw fruits and veggies on the side.
Remember to try and keep it as whole-foods as possible and stay away from the “vegan junk food.” Products like fake meats, chips, cookies, etc. can be expensive and are not really healthier than their non-vegan counterparts. The occasional vegan treat is fine but let that be the exception and not the rule.
One final thought: GET YOUR KIDS INVOLVED! We always let our kids help make lunch. It’s a great way for them to learn life skills, self-sufficiency, but also gives you some great 1-on-1 time before they head out the door.
