Breakfast for Lunch


Here's another rule-breaker. Some kids just like breakfast better than lunch, so why not pack a yogurt with low-sugar cereal and berries or banana slices to mix in? Another idea is a multi-grain waffle (that you toast or microwave before school) with a serving of peanut butter for your child to smear on at lunch. Just be sure to watch the sugar content and not to let your child eat the same foods all day, every day. You want her to get a good mix of foods so that she takes in different nutrients.
