How to Spice up a Child's School Lunch?
Back-to-school means packing school lunches, which is one of our least favourite jobs. However time-consuming it may be, we believe it is critical to send our school-aged children out with a balanced, nutritious lunch to feed their minds and bodies while they smash their reading, writing, and mathematics.
The time and energy it takes to pack a balanced lunch day after day after day may be tiring. So in an attempt to make your life simpler and spice the school lunch up, we''ve provided you with simple tweaks on traditional lunchtime cuisine, as well as sides and snacks you may not have considered.
1. Plan your meals for school lunch for the entire week, or at least one day, if feasible. If you plan ahead of time what you''re going to prepare, you''ll be halfway there.
2. Soak the grains and legumes as directed. If you want to soak beans for the entire week, soak them on the weekend and put them in the refrigerator for a couple of days.
3. Though grains such as rice and millet do not need to be soaked, doing so removes anti-nutrients and saves cooking time.
4. On the weekend, make sprouts from green mung beans, moth beans, and black chickpeas to utilize throughout the week.
5. Whenever possible, buy vegetables and fruits ahead of time, preferably on weekends.
Cooking and planning daily meals takes time and care. Though elaborate cooking is not possible for everyone every day, we should not overlook the importance of preparing a nutritious and fresh school lunch because a good diet is essential for overall wellness.
Healthy and clean eating should become a part of our daily habit rather than a 7-day or 21-day challenge. So, with good preparation, you may prepare all of your meals at home every day without spending the entire day in the kitchen.
