When it comes to design, the Wix blog has everything you need to create beautiful posts that will grab your reader's attention. Check out our essential design features.
Along with your fruit and veggie option, try these ideas:
Slice of pizza
Ham or turkey rolled up with cheese and wheat crackers on the side
Whole grain bagel with light cream cheese
Soup and crackers
Salad with grilled chicken
Tuna sandwich with cheese
Mac and cheese with diced hot dog
Rice with chicken nuggets or fish sticks
Pasta with meatballs
Chili with multigrain Tostitos
Raisin toast with jelly and light cream cheese
Whole-wheat pita bread with hummus
Veggie burger with melted or string cheese
Breakfast foods such as French toast with syrup or cereal with milk
Last night’s leftovers such as beef stew
Precook food so that we can reheat it quickly in the microwave.
Pack cold foods with an ice pack.
Pack a napkin and utensils.
Pack a drink.
Instead of packing a juice box, buy a sealable Sippy cup or thermos that you can fill with milk, water, or juice.
Reduce the calories and sugar content of the juice by filling half the cup with juice and half with water. It’ll save money and be healthier.
Buy a 2 lb. container of vanilla Greek yogurt. Greek yogurt has lots of protein and you can save money buying it in bulk and repacking it into Tupperware. Add granola or chocolate chips to make it more enticing.
Try adding a dipping sauce such as ranch for veggies, ketchup for nuggets, or mustard for deli meat.
