It is time for children to head back to school. With that comes some sincere lunch planning, so kids don’t carry junk food or biscuits every day. This might look easy, but it is a tedious task for all mothers every morning. Children just want a yummy lunch every day, but mothers care about their health and have to come up with lunch recipes that are nutritious, delicious, appealing to the eyes, and of course, they should be quick to prepare.
Everyone knows one or two recipes, but what about other days? To make your mornings easier for packing your kid’s lunch, we are here with some easy tips and tricks to help you get school lunch ideas that are loved by kids and healthy enough to give them proper nutrition.
1. Creamy Vegetable Sandwich
It is a simple recipe that can be made by placing some vegetables and fruits properly chopped, including some cream on the bread. It combines health and taste that will keep your kid happy and satisfied all afternoon. It takes a few minutes to get ready as you just have to stuff it with veggies and cheese.
2. Veggie Pita Bread Pizza
Kids love pizza, so place it in your child’s lunch by making it look yummy and taste scrumptious without losing the nutrition proportion. You can easily make a pizza by purchasing a pizza base bread from the market and adding slices of cucumber, tomato, onions, green bell pepper, and fruits like strawberries on it. By pouring some cheese from the top, you can make it more delicious and appealing for your kid.
3. Garlic Pasta with Veggies
Ready to eat pasta packets are easily available in the market. You just have to add some vegetables like onions, corn, green peas, red bell pepper and fruits like red grapes and blueberries. Though pasta comes with cheese, if it is not, you can also add some to make it yummy. You can prepare this pasta in 15 minutes and get your morning sorted.
4. Dal and Sabzi Paratha
If you have some dal or sabzi as a leftover, you can mash them up and fill them in flour to make a Paratha. When children can’t see it, they will eat it with pleasure. You can serve the parathas with curd or pickle in the lunch box. With this dish, you save yourself from wasting the leftover food and make your kid consume the right amount of nutrition with wholesome ingredients.
5. Fried Rice with Fruits
Children like to eat rice more than chapatis so that you can capitalise on their choice. If you have any leftover rice or fresh rice, just fry it by adding some veggies such as green peas, corn, beans and onion. You can also add some fruits like oranges, grapes, or strawberries to your kid’s lunch to give a change to their taste buds.
6. Beetroot Burger
It is easy to prepare this dish early morning, where you just have to fill the burger bread with air-fried beetroot patties. You can serve this to your kid with sauce, green chilli and fruits like apples, grapes, oranges, etc. Serve the burger to your kids by decorating it with their favourite veggies or fruits or cheese to make it more tempting.
7. Rava Upma
This is a delicious and easy to eat lunch idea. You can make Rava Upma with green peas, potato, coriander and lemon slices to make it a little tangier. To add more nutrients to your kid’s lunch, you can also put some fruits of their choice. A little bit of mayonnaise or cheese can add mouth-watering flavour to it.
