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.
Stratas keep in the fridge for up to three days. Or freeze, defrost overnight, and pack in the morning.
This easy snack doesn’t contain nuts, so it’s a great option for peanut-free schools.
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!
