October 14, 2013 Healthy Lunchbox

Mama was in a hurry this morning and we were low on groceries but I managed to pull together a quick lunch with what we had on-hand. Despite the fact that many people trying to eat “healthy” may shy away from chicken fingers or pretzels, a little bit here and there won’t hurt. Plus, small portions paired with healthier foods like yogurt and fresh fruit balance everything out.

I definitely try not to be the nutrition nanny so a few fun things that you may want to serve your child here and there, go for it. Just keep portions small and balance it out with nutritious options.

Today’s 5-minute lunchbox:
1/2 chicken finger (most of breading removed)
Yogurt
Fresh pineapple
Trail mix: Cheerios, raisins, dried apricots, pretzels

Update:
Throw away report: GONE!
