With this strategy, packing lunch is as easy as 1-2-3!

1 – Pack a main, like Turkey Fajita Meatballs or Mini Ham and Cheese Stratas, that has a pop of protein for staying power.

2 – Pack a veggie or fruit that your kid actually likes. It’s okay to mix them up. Your goal is for the produce to get eaten.

3 – Include a tasty side that balances out the box, like Honey-Pumpkin Seed Brittle.

Mini Ham and Cheese Stratas

Stratas keep in the fridge for up to three days. Or freeze, defrost overnight, and pack in the morning.

These meatballs are great cold, but pack them in a thermos if your kid prefers them warm. You can also make the meatballs mini and add a tortilla and veggies for DIY tacos!
